It's 98.4 outside right now at 3pm. 78 inside and no a/c on yet. Our new vinyl double pane windows help with keeping the heat out in summer, but eventually I'll have to turn on a/c..probably shortly.
Rinse your face and arms in cool water and drink plenty of cold water, Laura. It helps. Do you keep the house closed up? Before a/c I'd open windows for a while in am to cool house then close up windows and drapes/blinds late am. It's like a cave, but helps keep house cooler longer.
