Well,..... Mark, you ARE in TEXAS.  You're not SUPPOSED to be cool.

It is my perception that white is cooler than colors; I went to extra 
trouble and expense to get a white top with green valances rather than 
all green on my 10x15.  Those "put it together from many pieces" 
shelters have "aluminized" covers.  I imagine that they ARE cooler, 
but I haven't seen that type of material on an EZUp type canopy.
Comments solicited.
