The swamp cooler in my place will keep it right at 80* when it was 105* the other day. That was on low, for some reason it shuts off after a few seconds if I put it on high. 80* and a few fans doesn't feel too bad when it's so hot out though.

The A/C in my Jeep is the best I have ever seen in a vehicle though and I've owned BMW's, Ford's, VW's, Toyota's and a few other makes. I love it.

The jeeps the first vehicle I've owned with ac, I was like yeah cool whatever it has ac I'll probably never use it....hahaha.
With the swamper it keeps my house right around 80\85, I think I'm just spoiled because my last house had central air. Now that I think about it the swamper seemed better last year probably because I was walking inside from my unairconditioned yj

Looks like Boulders on fire too now from a lightning strike this afternoon. It's way far from broomfield but I can see smoke from my upstairs windows.

Was watching the smoke plume today, fires up on the Rampart along FS300. That whole stretch along the north side of 24 is finger canyons, rock and hundred foot drops. I have no idea how they are getting in there to fight it.

Just pray for them. Money food etc. I'm fine. I'm a heartless bastard but seeing this breaks my heart. I want earthquakes back. California fires never burned cities that I can remember.

This is looking really bad for you guys down there. Checked the nws, south and west winds tonight and tomorrow. Gonna drive that fire up the face of the rampart.

Oh, and you being a heartless bastard is the biggest crock of shit I've heard since the last presidential debate.

It's calming down some it looks. Using the phones camera and the night shots sucked. From pulpit rock you can see it all very well.

This is earlier at a friends house we were moving.

As of going to sleep now it looks like the only "majorly" effected areas are mountain shadows and the flying w ranch, which has burnt to the ground.
