As most of the country is suffering in the 90s and 100s this week, I thought I would try a little visual aid — frozen crab apples with that crystal-ly, icy snow:
I remember my Aunt Sally (many years ago) draping a wet, lightweight towel (maybe a feed sack type dish towel) around her neck to help keep cool. I mentioned this to DH last month when he was doing some work in an un-airconditioned house. He tried it and he said it did help. I’ve also read a suggestion to keep a second towel in the fridge in a plastic bag so you can swap towels from time to time to stay cool.
By the way, this is post # 498 — in two more posts it will be the 500th Post Give-Away!
PS: Maybe the frosty crab apples are working! It’s been dark and thunderstorm-y this morning, and at 10:45 am it’s only 70 degrees. Just hope the temps don’t shoot up and breed more storms.
