How do you keep cool on hot summer days!

We are in a heat wave here and will be all week and summer does not even start until tomorrow!

Just wondering what you all do to keep cool until the Christmas snows come back. (for those of us who get snow that is)

I know what you mean, the humidity here is terrible too. At 32c it feels like 42c today because of it.

I turn the air conditioner on high and sit right below it. I also have 2 ceiling fans going and 3 fans.

I do not use a fan or an air conditioner because it bothers Mouse so I do the following:

Windows are open at night and closed when it starts to heat up during the day.
The mini blinds are turned to keep the sun out.
I drink plenty of fluid, esp. water.
Cooking is kept to a bare minimum as are the use of electronics and anything else that would heat up the house.
If there is a breeze, I'll sit out in the shade - it may not be cooler, but it feels good

I stay inside where it's cool, and keep the blinds half closed to keep the sun out.

I stay inside as much as I can, crank the central AC, eat Ice Cream (must be hard as a rock) and drink plenty of cold beverages (unleaded and the adult version - leaded)...
