MISTERS ARE AN OUTDOOR COOLING SYSTEM, USED HERE ON THE DESERT WHEN IT'S TOO HOT TO BE OUTSIDE. THERE IS WATER TUBING THAT RUNS AROUND THE ROOF EDGE WITH HIGH PRESSURE NOZZLES. THE WATER IS SHOT OUT IN A FINE MIST. THE WATER IN THE HEAT AND LOW HUMIDITY OF THE DESERT QUICKLY EVAPORATES CAUSING THE AIR TO COOL.
THE SHADE OF THE ROOF AND THE EVAPORATION OF THE WATER MIST REDUCES THE TEMPERATURE ON THE PATIO BY AT LEAST 15 DEGREES. JUST THE OPPOSITE OF THE MIDWEST WHERE AN AIR CONDITIONER TAKES HUMIDITY OUT OF THE AIR TO FEEL COOLER, HERE IN THE WEST THEY ADD HUMIDITY TO THE AIR FOR A COOLING EFFECT.
DEFINITELY "SUNNY & 80"
THE PUNCH LINE
"They're saying Hillary Clinton may be secretary of state. If she takes that job, it means she'll be spending a lot of time away from home. Today, she took out her pantsuit with the travel stickers. Then she bought an electronic ankle bracelet for Bill." -- David Letterman
