Thanks for the offer, but right now, the humidity is high enough that the evaporative cooler isn’t working well. This happens every year from about mid-July to mid-August. Some people have switched to refridgerated air conditioning. Everyone says that this costs a lot more, but with the new, efficient units, I wonder if the difference is that great.
As for sending you some of our winter weather, I’d love to, as long as it didn’t cause a heat exchange with Ohio 🙂 I grew up in MD and was stationed in NY when in the Air Force. I don’t like cold and snow. That’s one reason I live here.
As for ground conductivity changing, when the ground sits under our sun for a few months without any rain, it really does dry out quite a bit. Like I said, I expect that I will again see reduced range this winter. Remember, some others have mentioned putting a drip line at their ground rods and seeing improved performance. I guess I could do that, but wasting water in the southwest is frowned on and will get you fined.
