Looking For A Way To Stay Cool
July 18, 2016 9:04am CST
It has been so unbearably hot lately that the weather is leading us to look for ways to stay cool without breaking the bank paying high air conditioning bills. Right now I am using air conditioning and fans both to keep the temperature inside bearable. It all leads me to wonder about the people and animals who are without these conveniences. I wonder how they can tolerate this heat. As for the people I think they can hopefully find a spot to go to that won't have them wilting from heat. The animals like the dogs and cats that are outdoor pets must be having it hard. They have a harder time finding cool spots. They are at the mercy, sometimes, of owners who think that their pet doesn't get bothered by the heat. I am hoping that there are provisions made for these outdoor pets to help keep them comfortable. On a lighter note, I was perusing Pixabay and found this photo of a dog playing in the water and though it was a perfect photo for a post about beating the heat. Here's hoping you all are having a cooler and great day.

We have only a few very hot days during the year, so nobody here have the A/C. We built the houses so that they can stay warm in winter and cool in summer. We all have shutters, to keep the house shaded during the hottest hours. Today outside there are 92 F, but inside our house the temperature is 75, with no fan and no A/C. I will open the windows and the shutters during the night.

Not too bad here regarding heat. Our pup Molly stays indoors in the air conditioning to stay cool. It is so important for dog owners to keep their dogs cool while having plenty of fresh drinking water in those dog bowls.

Yes, we are indeed lucky that way. I wonder about how our earlier generations managed to live through such weather. They had some contraptions that were not driven by electricity to keep cool or warm. I like to weather them to some extent - siva
