Ok, a while back i posted that my stepmom is making me keep my boa in the barn, and no matter what i told her about cost problems and stuff she never bugged on her choise.

So my father and i have been working our minds trying to figure out a way to cool the barn off enough. So i rememberd yesterday that he had a big industrial sized fan, "used in body shops and big buldings to help cool off during hott days".. And so i drugg it out to the barn, and set it up, and set up the tank with the undertank heater, and UV light, just to see how much it will cool off... Now remember that before the fan was in the barn, the temp was reaching like 80-90 degrees in there... But i left the fan on for like 2 hours just to let the thermomiter to ajust to the new temp, and it read that it was around 75-80 in the cool end of the tank, and the end with the heat pad was around 82-84.... So i must say its a big differance, and althought not nearly as good as it would be in the house its alot better than what it was...

And for the winter i'm planning on saving up all of my money, and building a insulated room in the barn, with and air conditioner/heater. So it will be warm in the winter, and cool in the summer.. And if i don't get to save up quite enough by winter, we bought a thermostat to set up until i do..
