Gosh Friday has rolled around again so it's time for the raffle.

it has really creepy up on me this week so no idea what the prize this week is so it is a mystery prize! ( even a mystery to me)but chances are it's a polybag

First59 entries as ever.

question this week is " what do you do to keep cold in hot weather"

been struggling all week and I like a wet flannel to keep me cool.

Good luck all

    Wall-to-wall Icees, Surplees, Slush Puppies, Iced Cappuccinos, Coolattas, Speedy Freezes, Taco Bell Freezes, Slushes...

    And oftentimes, just plain old ice.

    Water, more water, and Popsicles.  It's currently 92  degrees here (33 degrees Celsius), which is very unusual for this area.

    I ignore it, but that is due to my Asha'man training. I'm crazy lucky that way.

    Get as naked as local laws allow... Interesting that it's currently 3.25 am here in Oz - were actually in the middle of winter and it's an unseasonally warm 24.5 C....

    Absolutely nothing. I am by nature a cold person so this is the only time of the year I am actually warm. I love the chance to sweat and get nice and hot. Pretty soon it will be September and I will be cold again until next May.

    I'll tell you what not to do, drive five hours on the A1 on the hottest day of the year in a van without aircon and windows that don't really like coming down!

    Counter that with chilled Bolly.

    I'm drinking lots and lots, with preference for milkshakes and iced coffee because it's too hot to eat a lot. I've also been making lots of popsicles from mixed fresh fruits.

    I also like to hold my wrists under cold running water.

    Sitting in a hot bath and letting it cool down is also surprisingly good before going to bed.

    I like to keep my biggest fan nearby, and have a handy glass of water. Listening to a certain song by foreigner doesn't hurt either!

    Live where it doesn't get hot that often!  And where fans are enough to cool it down.

    @SprinkleOtter
    You maybe call them ice pops. They were always called ice poles in my house.

    Ah. :) There is another name for them over here, as well - otter pops (I have no idea why, but having cute associated with your brand is never a bad idea).

    Repeated cold showers throughout the day.

    Ice water and air conditioning!
  • solid_stridersolid_strider TexasMember Posts: 208
    I work from home, so I have all the fans on in the house to not strain the A/C too much... and just wear a t-shirt and boxers.  Best dress code ever!
  • William_TownsleyWilliam_Townsley Perth, Scotland Member Posts: 880
    This sounds weird but Frozen Fruit Shoots. There so nice 
  • SithLord196SithLord196 Member Posts: 1,160
    Air conditioner running as full blast as I can get. 

    Generally iced tea and lots of water and never go outside.

    I'm in Florida. It's disgusting outside this time of year. Much like I would imagine Dagobah to be year round.

    To stay cool, well...

    Buying a house with a pool was worth every stinkin' penny.

    Nothing exciting.  Just lots of cool water to drink.  Of course air conditioning is awesome as well.  Best wishes Bendybadger hope you are feeling better soon and the heat passes.

    Santa Barbara, California, doesn't get HOT, it's perfect.  hahaha, yeah that was before global warming.  Just put in A/C last year and very happy to stay inside.  Especially on days when it feels like layers of the ozone layer is missing and sunrays beat down so we feel like skin frying.

    Luckily we have air conditioning at work, so it's not too bad there, but when I leave the office... that's another matter. Frosty beverages, fan on full blast and ice packs as needed!!

    Hats, shade, ice cream (as a treat), occasional spray with a hose. He's only 2.5 so not much sun for my son.
