I've spent most of my life in the Inland Empire, southern California, where the temperatures can reach the low 40'sC but where the air is very dry. A patio mister did the trick for all but a couple weeks out of the summer when I needed to run the A/C.
Gyeonggi-do only hit the low 30's but it was swampy wet. One year I only needed the A/C for about a week, the other for nearly three weeks.
Now I'm looking at the almanac for this area and wondering...will it be a mild summer here? I might not stay for more than a year, and if it looks to be mild I'll just get some good fans. Will it be mild compared to what I'm used to?
I could use some advice, and I'd like to get this comm back up and fun again.
