Re: Settling in

Hi Theresa
Welcome back.  Question:  Is the misting system to cool you or your
Chris misting to cool works beautifully in the arid west but not in
the humid east.  Your air is already saturated so that misting doesn't bring
the relief that it does here.  When the mist hits our skin its the evaporation
that causes us to feel cooler...like sweating.  You don't have the dry air
that allows for quick evaporation.  That's why folks in the east have to rely
on air conditioning to beat the heat.

Oh- I can sympathize.  I
spent part of yesterday installing an outside 
canopy for part of my pergola. 
What a huge pain in the $#%&.  And now 
that it is up, I'm jsut not too
thrilled with it.  I used shade cloth 
instead of the "sunshade" which is more
solid.  Well- rats, the shade 
cloth looks kind of cheesy and doesn't block
enough of the sun for it to 
be comfortable to sit out under after all.  So-
I'm thinking of taking 
it all down and starting over....Next weekend or maybe
the one after that.

On the plus side, I did intall a misting system to the
pergola today and 
it looks good and works too!
