we have a few things we need to do today in this HOT day & we have to be in BIG Bertha which is our 1985 dodge van we've had since we got married 30 yrs ago in 87 she's OLD but she's STILL running good. she don't have A/C but o.k. We have to go take some stuff to good will & do some other stuff today so I'm gonna be ready for the heat with a wet towel to keep cool with & a ice chest with COLD water in it to keep cool with cause with my bronchitis it will act up on me if I don't. So if anyone has to be out in this heat PLEASE take something with you to stay cool with & plenty of water & BE safe out there.

@sugartoes I cannot go without a/c, in the house or the car. I spend very little time outside because its just to drastically hot for my likings. Our neighbours don't have a/c in their home and we don't know how they manage.

@Juliaacv I hear ya it's not fun being hot & sweaty & sticky too it's not hard to do with a c if you know how to keep cool with a wet towel on you & the fan blowing it keeps you cool.

@velvet53 I do, yeah I try to stay in as much as possible if I can, but when you have things you have to do there's no way you can stay inside so I do make sure I'm ready to be out in it for any length of time to have everything I need

Thank goodness the humidity index is not as high so 94 degrees right now does NOT feel sticky hot, however if I do go out today, white clothes, cool water and of course nothing with sugar in it !

Same here. The sun is unbearable. You need to equip yourself with umbrella and water to freshen you up.

@sugartoes We have the highest case of skin cancer down here, so there are always "Sun Smart" reminders during Summer. They use the '5-S' method to remind especially kids: 1. Slip - on sun protective clothing 2. Slop - on sunscreen lotion 3. Slap - on a broad-brimmed hat 4. Seek - cover under the shade 5. Slide - on wrap-around sunglasses

I don't have AC in my Explorer with over 400,000 miles either so I go out after dark. I can't breathe out there in the daytime.

@UncleJoe that's not good when you can't breath when it's hot, it's not that I can't breath it just makes me cough really bad when I get hot & not feel so good. So I can understand how you feel be careful going out in the heat day or NIGHT

@mom210 I know that's right I USE to do yard work & that's where I learned how to stay cool ALL day long & that's why I make sure I keep a chill rag handy just so in case I have to go out in the heat I have it with me.
