We just missed out on tying the 42 day record set in 1980 for the most consecutive days at 100 or above. As much as I don't like the heat, after living through 40 100+ days, I really wanted to break the record. Finding ways to beat the heat are really important, especially since there is no free A/C while working (but I'm not complaining about working remote). I am not looking forward to our electric bill this month, although I know it's nothing close to what our friends are paying to cool their houses. One friend recently posted to facebook that their bill was $625! My jaw dropped.
One of my favorite daytime snacks during the summer months are frozen grapes. How had I not heard of this until talking with a co-worker a couple of years back?? Pluck the grapes and stick them in freezer safe containers. Pure genius!
They are a tasty, cold treat and I try to work them onto the grocery list every time we go shopping. I wish they were always on sale for 99 cents a pound because $2.33 is a little steep.
What are some of your favorite ways to stay cool during this crazy hot summer?
