It’s forecasted to be hot again next week, not the high to mid 90-‘s but 85-90. That’s bordering on “too darn hot”. Here’s some ways to keep your cool when it gets hot;

  • Just add water. The relief is almost immediate, and will last for up to one hour or more.  Drink water frequently. Your body will feel cooler if you are hydrated.
  • Sit still. Do not try to fan yourself -- trying to move while feeling hot can make you feel hotter. Simply rest until the evening.
  • Avoid peak sunlight hours. Take a cue from people in extremely hot climates and avoid going out between 10 a.m. and 3p.m., when the sun's rays are hottest.
  • Wear your hair up. This will help to keep your neck cool and relatively free of sweat.
  • Keep the back of your neck in shade (wear a cap backwards, or raise your collar) or put a wet handkerchief on the back of the neck.
