The In Between

Here in Arizona, we have a dry heat. Which means that to cool our house, we use a swamp cooler aka an evaporative cooler. In other words, we add water and cool our air to about 20 degrees below the outside temp. Actually, a little better as when it is 115 outside, it is actually about 85 indoors.

Now, before anyone panics. I usually have my AC set at 84F and use a blanket while sitting under the ceiling fan.

Alas, the swamp cooler can’t be used all summer.

The monsoons start building around the 4th of July. And where there are clouds and chances of rain, there is humidity.

No longer a dry heat, but a sticky humid icky heat.

And still, we fight turning off the swamp cooler and turning on the AC. And such is the In Between times. Where it’s hot and hard to sleep and everything gets soggy. And I get grumpy.

Thankfully, we still have a few more weeks left, but the hurricane that sent some moisture our way last weekend is a sign of times of come.

I’ll take it, provided we get lots of rain.

Until next time.
