    Hmm

    Although we're still busy I can sense a slow down coming in the retrofit side of things. People are still upgrading but there have only been a few failed units to replace. The temperatures here in Iowa have been holding steady with highs in the low to mid 70's and lows at night in the 50's. What's the deal, we should be at 95 degrees with a dewpoints in the mid 70's by now. The weekly forcast shows no days in the 80's yet. I guess I'll be patient and enjoy the 5, 11 hour days before it turns into 6, 13 hour days, and then some on Sunday too.

    Anyone else having the cool summer?

    I would be happy to trade places with you for awhile. Just until your saturated and had your fill of them long days.

    We have heat AND humidity here in central Texas.

    Your area would be a soothing change for me and the family.

    I am with you got-ideals.

    Been way too cool and wet! (What happend to the "Green House" affect?)

    We've been very cool here as well.. Only ran our A/C for 2 days.

    Saturday over night temp was 45.

    I am worried we will get a big blast of heat in Aug!

    IGI Same here in Chicagoland. Should pick up soon. At least we're getting all our cleaners done and will not have to reschedule them when the 90 temps hit.

    I love it. Getting caught up for a change. We had the 4th warmest spring on record they say. Great to have the cooler temps. Now we can get to May's cleans and stop beating the guys to take more & more calls and installs.

    Been cool here in the motor city as well. Ive been chatting with the local indians to see if they can do anything about it.

    It's been pretty cool in my neck of the woods too (western SD). Kinda nice though! I've been doing a lot of furnace changeouts lately, sure makes it more fun to work in an attic when it's only 80 outside.

    I'm sure our hot snap is coming, but honestly I'm not looking forward to it. It gets too dry around here and the hills burn up too fast. Plus I like the melow work weeks, not the no end is sight weeks.
