HI my friends, I have been in the so hot weather for a long time now. I just hope the hot weather can pass soon . I am going to pepare for the cool autumn. At present, autumn is just around the corner, I think I still need some ways to help me feel cool. What have I done? I just put a piece of mat on the ground to help me keep. And it really works in the end. That night I enjoy a very comefortable sleeping. What about you? Do you have this experience?

There are a lot of things that I've done this summer in order to help stay cool because it is significantly warmer this summer than it was last summer. First of all, I love our central air conditioning unit and we've had that on since the weather first got hot. We keep the windows and doors shut whenever the air is on to help us conserve electricity. In addition to that, we've visited the swimming pool on a regular basis. Also, we will take cool baths in our family on a very regular basis.

Are you saying a mat on the floor? I was outside one night and the breeze was really nice. I told my husband I wouldn't mind putting a bed out there to sleep on. The only thing that stopped me was the bugs outside. My mom used to sleep outside during the summer in the evenings because she worked graveyards. My neighbour will sleep on her floor by the door. Whatever works....

Hi there! I do believe that this is largely due to the global warming which resulted from many years of neglect of our environment. Just like what you are experiencing right now in your location, we here in Southeast Asia also are quite worried because these months usually usher the rainy season already. Further, this coincides with our local farmers starting the planting season for various crops including rice (which is our staple food), corn, and other rootcrops, vegetables, and fruits. Our nation is basically agricultural in nature, by the way. And yet, what we are having at this time is scarcity of rain. We even have to resort to cloud seeding and other traditional means of asking for rain from the almighty. Anyway, a lot of people around the globe are already aware of the adverse effects of global warming so hopefully, everyone will do his share to save Mother Earth. After all, we only have one liveable planet as of now; despite the fact that many scientists and researchers have been studying other means to live outside our world.
