We have a couple of box fans and a ceiling fan (and IF I can ever get an electrician out here, all four downstairs rooms will have ceiling fans in them for next year); also I didn't try to do too much physical work during the hottest part of the day. And we drank a lot of cold tea! But we made it! After fifteen years in the high desert, I wasn't sure how it would be -- and I still miss the cool nights there. But I don't miss all the smoke from forest fires....

The valence that encases the top of vertical curtains keeps the air from flowing behind and down. They were standard once upon a time in an era of expensive home heat, maybe they should make a comeback. I have tight fitting wood blinds myself but my windows are double pane low e . I have thought I might build storms for them this year another element ripe for a comeback... there is always room for improvement.
