I don't know if you do this already or not, but after many years in the TX heat, I have learned a few things about the AC in a car. The most important thing is to use the "recirculate" button. The unit won't have to work as hard to cool down the air that is already in the car. Also, keep the windows cracked for a couple of miles to allow some of the hot air to escape. And lastly, if you have one, use a screen for the windshield. It is amazing how much heat the dash can absorb in a small amount of time. This can make it difficult for the unit to keep up.

I can't wait to see the photos.

That's exactly what I was going to say! Dealing with the 100+ temps in CA lately has been no fun, but rolling down the windows helps a lot, as does using a shade.

I hadn't planned to see Pacific Rim but now that I know Burn Gorman is in it...yeah, slight change of plans there. ;)

I enjoyed his performance. I much preferred to see Burn Gorman playing someone other than his Torchwood character. :-)

I've pondered getting a shield for my car, but I suspect that 7 days in an airport parking lot would defeat even the best of shields. :-)

The other techniques I tried, to no avail. (My car much preferred today over Thursday.)
