    to evaporation when the weather is cold, though maybe that is made up for by the wind.

    Any time you want, we'd be happy to have more cool, wet weather here in the mountain west.

    •  They had a lot of snow and now they (0+ / 0-)

      are getting rain.  I was amazed at how green everything is along the way.    I'd be happy to swap you a dollop of weather.   I was on the phone with Hughet tech support in Texas.   We chatted about the weather.   Have you gotten an relief from the heat yet?   115 is hard to imagine.  Ah but... it's a dry heat.  :D

        for the moment.  We get some heat towards the weekend, but the first part of the week we've been in the low 80's here along Colorado's front range.  Mid-90's by the weekend.

        The burned areas east (this year) and west (last year) from Colorado Springs have been getting strong rains yesterday and today, causing some flash flooding, but even at that it's apparently been from just a half inch of rain.  Just that much in a half hour or so couldn't sink in so it went flowing.
