Who else is suffering under the heat wave pounding down on the western US?
Today the high at my place was 99F. Inside the house it got almost as hot (96F), with very little airflow other than the fans. Had to even have doors and windows closed for the worst of it to keep the hotter air out.
What I did today: Kept putting out bowls of ice to melt into a cool drink for my cats. Put a frozen gallon bottle of water behind the fan on the floor for them, to create a mini-AC (also did the same trick for my main tank), and put out frozen 2L bottles with a towel wrapped around them for the cats to lay against. And I kept wetting my shirt and a washcloth that stayed around my neck, and would periodically squeeze another washcloth onto the cats, petting them to make sure their fur was good and wet.
What has everyone else been doing to cool down?
