To Beat the Heat

It’s a challenge for me to maintain a sunny disposition when the heat and humidity move towards broiler oven conditions. Lacking in central air, we have only one box-style unit in our house and if I sit in that room for too long, my sinuses go haywire. This is because my husband sets the thermostat low enough to mimic the Artic tundra. If I need to run upstairs, it’s a rapid thaw and like walking into a rain forest. While I haven’t taken a swim in years, I’m seriously considering jumping into the river to try and cool off. Please do your best to stay cool these next few days as the temperatures in the northeast are only going to get worse. Remember to drink lots of liquids and keep your pet’s water dishes full as well.
