It only took me about 7-8months to get used to the Florida heat. And,
it's really not different that you guys farther north, it just last longer for
us. 95 degrees is easier on us because we're used to it. As for the shade,
anything helps, especially when there's a breeze, so cover it up anyway
As for the small a/c in the hatch boards, I like that idea and just happen
to have a small window unit in the garage that's there in the event
of a hurricane & the need to pull out the generator. I'll be fabricating
a board this weekend.
