    Well I fianaly turned on the AC in the shop

    Temp hit 100 and I just couldn't keep working so I shut the doors turned on the AC and now I'm taking a break while it cools down.

    Isn't that a dry heat that the natives say never bothers them? That heat is not good for anyone. I'm glad you have the AC.

    Doesn't look any cooler to me.

    According to Larry no picture it didn't happen.

    Only 70 degrees in Nebraska today but the humidity is 100%. Shp AC is on and you can't see out the windows 'cause they're all steamed over on the outside.

    Saw a dog chasin' a cat the other day and they were both walkin'

    Sure wish I could say the same. Looks like next week we'll have a cool front and only get into the lower to mid 90's. My a/c has been on in the shop for the past 3 weeks. I have it on energy saver and set it on 82 when I'm not in the shop and 75 when I actually work in there. It's so hot out that when the dogs follw me out the door they are ridht behind me following me into the shop.

    The AC can only handle the small 10x20 section of my shop and then only barely. Had our evening storm come through so I opened up both shops and all the door. the shop cooled down to 80 degrees.

    Eh Don send some of that rain here to Texas. My shop is 24 x 24 and I bought an a/c unit large enough to cool it. Tired of sweating on my work.
