Can’t Beat the Heat!

Our small air conditioner just can’t make much of a dent in the heat.  At 8:24 PM with the AC going full blast it was 90 degrees in the ‘cool’ part of the house.  The bedrooms are NOT in the cool part of the house. Tomorrow is supposed to be even hotter.  One reason to look forward to returning to school next week!IMAG2589

    Heat and humidity can suck all the energy out of the most active people. Holly, your link shows some great suggestions. I like the cool temp points on the bod- thanks. I think heat waves happen to let us know summer has really arrived but miserable as they may make us, normally they don’t last too terrible long. For those of us without air conditioning, the public library that has it, can offer big relief, even if it is just for a few hours of checkers or reading. Hang in there Boxcarkids! (Can you imagine how steaming hot being in a boxcar would be in this heat?) I do so enjoy your blog!

    I found a couple tips from this LifeHacker post — especially the car one — to be useful:

    And having lived without A/C during a heat wave once, I can personally vouch for sleeping under a wet sheet or towel. Would not have survived otherwise.

    Good luck. Cold weather will be here before you know it; personally I’d rather deal with heat, but YMMV.
