Three hours later an apologetic manager calls - the tech never ordered the part! They're going to overnight it to their location and set up the install when it comes.

Consolation is 10% off on the bill. I didn't feel the need to tell them that the power company is paying for it.

We are lucky, lucky lucky... Weather is perfect for this to happen. High 79, RH ~50%, windows open and we're very comfortable.

I heard the call to do nothing. So I answered it.

Actually, you will not be sweaty wet out in direct sunlight either because of the dryness, plus the blazing sun will scorch you to a crisp. But it is not really bad until it gets to around 120F (49C).

I really should be up at my 2nd home, if not RV'ing, but there are a few things I need to take care of.
Wow, you're making me feel cool!

Mid 90s here, but humidity dropping to 30% - really not bad. The evenings have been very pleasant.

Well, I thought I was retired. But it seems that now I'm working as a travel agent instead!
