I'm not going to complain about our glorious weather, but damn it's warm whew.gif

The police were forced to go direct traffic leading down to a popular beach, total mayhem. They're talking about setting up a bus connection from town, I bet it's crowded as hell on all the beaches. And it's going to get warmer. İmage

My homemade swamp cooler... lol, but it works. Styrofoam cooler, fan, ice and vent.
It helps a bit. There is no AC up here... we are not supposed to feel like Las Vegas FFS.

chuckle.gif The swamp cooler has even been upgraded since the photo. JR put another snug fitting fan.

sad2.gif hard to sleep when it's that warm. I open all the doors and turn on a fan early in the morning, my house is about 18f now (1PM). But then I get up about the same time you two go to bed rofl.gif

good.png I don't think any of us did lmao.gif

We've got the fan in the window to bring in some cooler air. Sun rises just after 4 am so now is the time to get things circulating.

Relief is relief, no matter how you achieve it.

Humidity, though, is the booger with open water/ice swampers. If you can circulate ice cold water through a copper coil (closed system) in the air flow, additional humidity will not be a factor.

Just depends how long you think you're gonna be using it.

24 outside, 27 inside.. ffs.. thats not too hot.. try it being 38 at midnight for 4 days straight.. and i dont have aircon..

put your feet in that cold water with ice, that will cool you straight down and a face wash on your forehead and torso will work wonders too, with a fan directly on you as you sleep..
