    SC heat

    We've been dancing near triple digits all week here and heat indexes in the 107-110 range. A coworker of mine told me that while driving home in a more rural area she passed a trailer home where the owner had placed a sprinkler attached to his garden hose (I'm assuming well water) on his roof?????

    Wish she'd taken a pic of that one.

    Believe it or not I read somewhere someone did an experiment and that actually helped. But yeah:

    Actually, it makes perfect sense. That sprinkler throws small droplets into the air and evaporation takes place cooling the drops as they fall.

    I don't discount that it could help but the redneckish image was very entertaining. Maybe I'll turn off my AC and do an experiment
