Coping with the heat
One method for coping with the extreme heat we get here in the desert is with "misters." The above photo shows the misters along the mall area at Biltmore Fashion Park shopping center.
Restaurants also use misters to cool down their patio dining areas but, as you can see from the above photo, people still don't sit outside when the temperatures soar above 105 degrees (42 C). We usually reserve outdoor dining for the fall, winter, and spring months.
