control...

Windy but cool. Spliced in the control box for the swamp cooler today. The top 2 switches are for the upper and lower fans and the bottom switch is for the pump timer circuit. Last task to dress the wires behind the window frame. Picked up another thermometer to monitor the cooler temp and the inside temp. Cleared off all the porch debris from the installation - I am always amazed at how much chaos is created when building something.

Had to catch up on my NWS info - haven't logged my weather data for over two months. Took over an hour to get my stats into the system. Should probably try to do this on a daily basis.

Received a resurrection plant in the mail the other day....and popped it in a bowl of water to see if it really will revive. Perhaps the perfect plant for my environment here. Updates to come as it comes to life. 70,79,62,0,W

I have seen resurection plants in the western soltario area. A little higher altitude than you I think.

Slick job on the Swamp cooler set up.

I had a resurrection plant on my desk in Alpine that I stole from the Mexican side of the Rio Grand back when we lived out there. There was a whole canyon full of them somewhere .

Only advice I can offer is, don't over water it.. Let it get down to looking like it is dead and then in a few days water it some.

Judging from the temp readings you may have a heater!
