How are you keeping your cool?

A potpourri of off-topics.

How are you keeping your cool?

A/C, fans.

Stayin' indoors til after sunset.

A/C and indoors most of the time. Any outside activities are early in the day.
I have never tried Yoga but I bent over to pick up my keys once so I'm pretty sure I wouldn't like it.

Jumping in the lake a few times a day and not wearing pants.

Cue Jeff Foxworthy, "ya know yer a redneck when..."

Last night it got so cool up on Knox Mt I had to throw the blanket over my legs. That was unexpected.

I love the breeze on Kirschner Mtn at night, open the windows around 10pm and let the wind blow through, although it is usually around 2am that you get the full breeze. It cools the house down and feels soooo good.

Opening up the house early in the morning, with an industrial fan pulling air from the downstairs door through the house out the top. Then close up and run the fans inside, keeps it quite liveable though it kills the chance of sleeping in . . .

I can't get cool enough lately. Nothing works.

I'll take a mental pause before responding. :D

I love the heat, I don't use a\c, just open windows, maybe put a fan blowing out
from an upstairs window.

Plenty of water and electrolytes.

My work vehicle has a broken heater control, heat is stuck on !
Will come in handy in a few more months. (bonus..coffee stays hot all day.)

It's good to sweat. I consider it cleansing.

We took a trip to visit family near Victoria a week ago! About 10 degrees cooler than Kelowna and there's also the most lovely Vitamin Sea! Cool breezes and no smoke! Hoping there's a good rain in Kelowna before we return.
It's possible to do all the right things and still get a bad result.

The rain we had took the ash off the dust. But that's about it.

I'm finding today so much more livable.
