How do you handle the hot, humid summer days?
Most of the east coast of North America is suffering through a heatwave, how do you beat the heat?
Sprinklers! Nothing beats the heat like watering the grass, the kids and myself all at the same time!
Now I understand this is just sick, but I love it! Way too soon it's going to be freezing cold so yes, I am loving it. Drink lots of water, eat spicy, salty things and siesta when you can
I try to limit my outdoor activities to the early morning and early evening hours to avoid the hottest parts of the day. I wear a lot less clothing when it is this hot, shorts and no shirt most of the time while indoors. I close the blinds and the curtains during the peak sunshine hours, enjoy iced tea and cold water, and try to think about those cold, snowy days not so far off ;-)
I usually just head inside When I am outside I go into the swimming pools that usually helps. We don't have air conditioning so at about noon we close all the windows and turn the fans on. It's not paradise but it works
I stay close to the ac and if I am going to somewhere I try to go in different hours that are not as hot. We used to have central air, but it broke and the window ACs often turn off the internet
I stay inside as much as possible and drink a lot of ice water when I am outside. If I had a pool or access to one, I would swim, or at least splash around. Being wet cools you off.
Take off your clothes. It does limit activity, but my wife and I work mostly at home. My wife wears a thin cotton wrap, which ties in a single knot at the front, and she answers the door while I pull on something attractive . . .Its 40C degrees here . .
Go out in the morning...go back home...don't go back out until like 6 (unless I just really have too)
Hi, Uninvited Writer! I wish I had access to a place to swim. Instead, I do my outside work early in the day, and stick to the shade. Then, I head into the air conditioned house and work on my Hubpages! (Don't forget to drink lots of water!
