    Heard on news yesterday that in Death Valley they was expecting the hottest temp ever today, and that's for anywhere on earth ever since they started recording temps.

    I heard it was going to be around 130s the other day somewhere out west. I don't know how you guys take it. It's in the upper 80s where I love and I'm miserable. I start sweating when I go outside.

    Why would your fans help with overheating? My fans don't do anything but get in my way. They think I NEED them?? Same with my entourage....

    I got this 30" industrial fan from harbor freight for around $100 and I'm good surprisingly and it gets up to 115 out here, if not hotter in the garage.

    I finally turned on my swamp cooler today. DAMN I love that thing. Cheap, simple, easy to use and I have had it for 15 years with zero problems. It cools the whole house in about 5 minutes. I have been told multiple times it doesn't work on the west coast. lol.

    I mowed my lawn at 8am today before it got HOT and also because I just got home from work. I think it was hot today but I'm not sure, I was in a blacked out cool room so I could sleep.

    I have two metal floor fans that push a great deal of air, and the pair may have cost me $75.

    I keep mine on 72 during the day and 70 at night with a tower fan and a ceiling fan full blast in my bedroom.

    My wife wants to kill me as she has to sleep with a ridiculous down comforter and my power bill is fooking stupid. I can't sleep if I'm hot though.....and I still wake up sweating.

    76 WTF...I'd be dying. Mines set at 72 and I still sweat for about an ahour after I get home from the gym. Not to mention its only been high 70's here all week, but very humid.

    Definitely going shopping. I have to stick my face an inch from the blades just to feel the air. I never learn; you get what you pay for.

    Guys, it was almost 90 here this afternoon when I woke up.... My AC unit's been getting a pretty killer workout lately. At least I don't live inland.

    If you time a sprinkler to hit the condenser for a couple minutes every few hours, it will get much colder faster.

    It peaked here at 73 today and that had me sweating like a pig. I couldn't be in it for more than a few mins at a time!
