Well, here are a few data points to reinforce all those Texas license
plates you see in CO:
* San Antonio has the first fully-air-conditioned office building
in the world (Milam Building - try lunch in the cafe.)
* San Antonio had the first air-conditioned public bus (1946).
* Our world's fair (Hemisfair 1968) was built with outdoor air
conditioning for people waiting in line, fed by the same chilled water
source as the drinking fountains.
* Water has always been important here. Some folks are still using a
water system built in 1731. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Espada_Acequia
has a good picture of part of the historic structure.
Now, in the old days you were more likely to get frostbite in the summer
as the A/C was set so low, but with demands for energy conservation this
is fairly rare. You'll survive. --Don
 There's an argument with the T.W. Patterson building in Fresno CA,
which also claims the title.
We're headed for a Quantum Collapse!
