Beat the heat

The white roof is almost done, and it's 93(F) outside, this afternoon, and 73(F) inside. Of course, solar shades on all the sun-facing windows helps. As does the insulation. As does closing up the house in the daytime and opening at night. But you get the idea. So far, though we are no longer young, we haven't had to install AC. Meanwhile, Risa's told, the roof is doing its share to reflect surplus solar radiation back into space. A community-minded way to beat the heat.
