...clear, sunny 16mph prevailing winds today and temps going to 105 today...
Even duct tape can't fix stupid ... but it can muffle the sound...and zip ties, properly applied, can reduce the movement!

I remember when Jan and I went out to see my Dad one time....we drove down by Palm Desert and had date shakes....it was 116 that day.....felt like the oven door was open....LOL..

Dad had AC but ran the 'swamp cooler' most the time.....kept the place quite pleasant.... :)

..they normally don't get as cool as AC......and they do work with thermostats too....LOL..........they are super efficient....and cheaper to run...

,,,when I was in the Army at Ft Knox/Ky and Ft Bliss/ Tx, the school brigade buildings all used swamp coolers..

...for me it was a good day...an hour's worth of touch painting and installing a towel rack and trim in the bathroom of one unit...a touch of reading...bagged plants for the fish trade tomorrow...negotiated a purchase of a trio of Panda Loaches...put cabinet doors back on new cabinets we got for the deck...I had taken them off to put glass panes in them... Tuesday Tacos with Stan & Barb, Ron & Nancy, and Lucy...
