I don't know about any of you guys, but we didn't have air conditioning back in the day. To keep cool my parents would put out the sprinkler, or we'd go to the neighborhood parks and swimming pools to keep cool, drink lots of Kool aid, suck on popsicles, eat watermelon, and actually just become climatized to the warm weather. I don't remember having problems sleeping during heatwaves because we kids had large fans blowing on us...and we'd even take off the protective casing and guess what? our fingers weren't cut off. chuckle.gif

Yep, same here. We didn't have air-conditioning when I was young. If it was really hot, we would sleep in the basement where it was cooler. On hot days we would just swim in a lake or a pool. Whining was not tolerated. chuckle.gif
