gone soft in my old age...
For the past 6 days it has been 100+ during the day. I still have yet to add the 400 watts of panels I got last year to my system so I am running my AC from 6 to 8:30 PM off my generator (just like a tourist!). This week it has been hitting 89° inside by 6PM. One and a half gallons of gas per day is a small price to pay for a little cool at the end of the day. By the time I shut if off - Pepino can take up the slack for the rest of the night. 93,104,78, .64",C UPDATE: Got hammered with over a half inch of rain from 7:30 to 8:00. Chupa got a shower.
