Yesterday (Saturday) I was out at a festival, volunteering where we had ambulances on deck just in case something happened. (For those wondering on deck means standing by...smile) About 5 people had passed out, or got sick within an hour of me being there. I can only imagine what that number was like when the festival ended.
This is what the temperature was like between 8am-10am.
And 109 degrees was the temp an hour late. And this doesn't even begin to touch the surface. It amazes me how hot it gets in certain parts of the city. Where I am from there was humidity so it would be 80 degrees but the humidity would make it feel like it was 180 degrees. I don't which one is worse, dry hot hair or air with moisture that's equally as hot.
I made it through and today (Sunday) wasn't that bad, it was in the 80's and the breeze was a lot cooler. I survived the over 100 degree weather some way some how. Can't wait to see what tomorrow (Monday) holds.
How does one stay cool in weather like this? There's only so much water a person can drink, and cool compresses we can put on us. How do you guys stay cool during the hot summer months? (besides being in air conditioning) Post your comments below.
