My California raised late husband told me that in the days of '49, the miners took a wooden box, covered it with felt, and dripped water onto the felt. The evaporating water cooled the contents. Pretty basic, but it worked very well in the low humidity. Could you adapt the idea to do at least part of your cooling. Also about partial cooling: The U. of Nebraska at Omaha partially air conditions it buildings by pumping water from underground springs thru the system. The water is then used to keep the lawns and shrubbery green. During droughts, there are always lots of complaints from folks who don't know how the system works. My daughter, who farms in rural Iowa, reminds me that if our power goes out, I should take my down sleeping bag and head for the basement floor which will stay near 40F. Out there, where wind chill may drop to -100, she has reason to keep this in mind. BobBI Keppel
