The New Best Hot Weather Idea

We've been trying to save money on air conditioning, but let's just say studying when it's hot is, well, hard.  So we've made a wading pool.  It's also known as a bathtub.  We just fill the tub ankle-deep with cold water, set a folded up towel outside to step on when we're leaving the wading pool, and that's it.  We've been amazed at how long the water stays cool (or at least feels cool to our feet), and it will get us through another hot one today.

  1. A spray bottle would be fun, and then sit in front of the fan for evaporative cooling. Oh, you'd better have something icy to sip on too.


Greetings, fellow climbers! Leave your marks on the steps--I'll be delighted to hear from you.
