Summer is here!

Got up to 88.9° inside today.  It's gonna be a hot week and luxury sunglasses won't help.  Time to break out the AC.  91,104,75,0,B

Isn't 29% fairly high humidity for you? Humidity always makes it worse. Hope you get your little hut cooled down.

Pepino cools down the hut fine in the evening but can't keep up when it gets over 100° during the day.

Maria and I lived in one a one room studio in Park Slope, Brooklyn back in 1971 for $100 a month. We recently (1 1/2 years ago) were campground host at Chisos Basin in Big Bend for three months where we were back to around 300 square feet of living space again. We found that we both love the desert, low humidity, fewer mosquitoes and no grass to cut. We loved it so much there we decided to move to El Paso. We can't get city life out of our systems, so we feel it's the best of both worlds. We Thought of you when we were in Terlingua last February. --Adrian from Brooklyn.

so you must be getting enough juice from the solar panels inverted to 110 to power the air conditioner?

Margery Bills said...

Yes, how about that modern convenience of air conditioning for afternoon and/or a good direct- on fan over some ice?

Larry G -
John explains the electrical situation here

La ti da. My electric is off now because of new installation where the bull is across the street. Maybe the bull will need a fan or something. They pulled my electric meter out for safety. I'm not paranoid but I remember the old days when many people were bugged and harassed in the name of national security. My friend then who they chased around died 12 years ago in Maine in a hospital. (I have been on Trump's website and a lot of democrats want to destroy it).

Margery Bills said...

Well, everything is back on. Maybe I should get a place off grid. :-)

Thanks Joel - I thought I had read that but could not remember. I'm IMPRESSED that a modest solar panel setup can run an AC! This part of the Field Lab - the solar and battery setup has always piqued my interest!
