Random Topic of the Week (05 June 2016)

It was a relatively hot day here in western Washington, so I'm going to make this week's question easy. What do you like to do to beat the heat? We had fans on, the blinds closed, and had ice cream and root beer floats today.

I tend to have lights off and doors closed on hot days and like to drink more water in order to stay hydrated. I read a trick about opening 2 windows in the house and setting a fan to blow air out of the window on the hotter side of the house to bring the cooler in through the other window and thus circulating through the house. I will give that a try next summer.

Another thing I do if it's a really hot day is go somewhere that has air conditioning like the library, shopping centre or cinema and spend time there enjoying the fact that I can enjoy myself and be able to do stuff like read etc without the risk of overheating.

If I have to be outside for one thing I'd like to remain outside the rest of the day maybe find shade once in awhile but enjoy as much as I can while I can.

If I have no reason to be outside on a hot day I always close the blinds and lock into some binging on netflix or as of late ESO. We had a few hotter days last week and that's all I did except for going out to a picnic one day, I ended up outside most of that day but the next few I was already playing games so that was pretty much it, no going out for me.

On hot days, I relish the fact that one of the first things I installed in my house when I bought was central air.

There is also still an actual ice cream truck that patrols around my town... so it's always fun to run out into the heat with the kids and purchase ice cream and retreat back to the house and eat 'em. :D
