It's so dad-blamed hot in the late afternoon (106F yesterday) that visits to the cellar need to be made in the early morning..... waiting until suppertime means opening that dude in the heat of the day, not such a good idea at all.

Just now made my morning trek for supperjuice and all is hokie-dokie in there at 57F.

Whom be the genius to build the sucker WAY AWAY frum the adobe? WW :-P :-T

WW - That genius would be the dumbarse who built this jernt 40 years ago. He built a bomb shelter out behind the greenhouse, and it's that shelter that I converted for wine storage a few years ago.

It doesn't make any sense as a bomb shelter, a storm cellar or a wine cellar because of its distance from the house.... 65 yards. But it's what I've got.... supplemented with stand-alone units, of course.
