How To Cool Yourself Without Air Conditioning!
We reached a high today of 104 at our house! That's very hot for Northern Indiana. I am thankful I live so close to Lake Michigan because farther inland it was even hotter. I can't begin to say how thankful I am for air conditioning. I think my Newfie would agree. He has been living in front of fans all day long.
I do have several friends who do not have air conditioning and I am concerned for them. I've experienced heat exhaustion and heat stroke, and I don't want to see anyone go through either of those. They can be very dangerous. I know as a Pastor's wife, my husband and I look out for some of the elderly in our church. Many of them do not have family close and we want to make sure they are okay.
So what do you do to beat the heat? I've been looking for simple ways to do that and I found a site that has a very good practical list of things to do when you don't have air conditioning. I think some of them would be good to do even with air conditioning. We need to be educated on how to help ourselves and our families, so having a list like this handy could save a life!

Stay cool and be careful! It's okay to put some things off in heat like this. NO sale, activity, or event is worth your health or the health of your family!
