White Dog and Jesse and I were slowly melting in the heat, which shouldn't have been the case because with the swamp cooler on our house makes the inside relatively comfortable. When Steve came home for lunch the first thing he said was "Boy, is it hot in here!" White Dog yipped in agreement and poor Steve (at noon) went up on the roof to see if there was a problem with the cooler. Our hero! There was a problem but not on the roof. When Jesse arrived she noticed that the hose was still on causing water to wastefully run down the drive so she turned off the spigot instead of the hose...the spigot that controls the water that feeds the swamp cooler! Once Steve discovered the problem, the fix was easy; within minutes White Dog was laying belly up in the once again cooling air flow. We both thanked Steve a thousand times and gave him the biggest half of the peach we shared with lunch!
