Beat the summer heat...

Well summer is here, and is showing us who's boss!

With the changes we've made to the ranch, we are less dependant on a generator during the fall, winter, and spring. But keeping cool during the summer months without running one to power an evaporative cooler is challenging. As long as there is a breeze, the misters do a great job of keeping the heat manageable. In the saloon, the ceiling fan combined with the misters (right outside the large window) makes it at least comfortable. We've found that keeping the window screens sprayed down with water also keeps it a few degrees cooler inside. A bit time consuming, but anything that helps.

So here we are, in triple digit temps, and we are surprisingly comfortable. And we don't have to listen to generator run!
