"But It's a DRY Heat!"
…note the humidity or, more-better, the lack of same in the graphic above. When we say “it’s dry heat” in these parts, we mean it!That said, yesterday was miserable.The combination of mid-80s heat and sun beating down on the exterior of El Casa Móvil De Pennington made things rather unbearable indoors yesterday... and the combination of heat, wind, and blowing dust made things just as unbearable outdoors. Or, in other words, it was an air conditioned sort of day.I normally wouldn’t run the AC unless and until it gets over 90 degrees.I simply lower my awning, open the windows and door, and revel in the warmth.But:I can’t put my awning down if the wind is over 20 mph (or so) and you’ll note we were having consistent wind in the mid-30 mph range, with gusts over 50 mph.That sort of wind has been known to shred awnings, and I have a certain amount of… ummm… experience with that phenomenon.But, leave us not digress, eh?You’d be amazed at how much difference the awning makes in the interior temperature of El Casa Móvil… not to mention its impact on my electricity bill.
So.Fast-forward about 19 hours and this is what we’re like today:
No AC required.But the furnace has been running all morning.
