How do you beat the heat?
With the thermometer hitting 106 here today, I was wondering how everyone combats the heat?
I installed a window unit to supplement my HVAC unit. It really, really makes a difference, especially once temps reach over the 100 mark. Outside, hubby got me a misting system (but mine has the expansion kit as well) and we tied it to the canopy supports on the A-frame of a now defunct porch swing. We then covered that with a plastic drop cloth to form a big pup tent type thing. It's open at each end and catches and funnels air through, so we have the mist with a little breeze. It turned today's 106 into a very comfortable 76, or at least that's what it felt like.
