    This reminds me of when we were in Palm Springs in April. We were sitting by the pool at the resort one morning when the pool boy came to add chemicals to the pool, scoop leaves, etc. a French tourist walked up to him and in perfect French/English dictionary translation form asked Ďexcuse me mr. Pool chemical technician, how long after you complete the servicing of the pool should we wait before we can safely re-enter the pool?í

    Mister update. At the moment itís 101 degrees and 19% humidity. I turned the mister on half hour ago and our backyard is now 76 degrees.

    Iím as comfortable now as I would be sitting out here at this time of day on a normal day where the high was in the mid 80ís. This is one of the best $16 purchases Iíve ever made.

    With the humidity this low the temperature difference between mister and non mister areas seems to be about 25. Itís now 95 according to our weather station and 71 in the backyard.
