Default How are you staying cool?

Do not know what it is like in other parts of the US but here in the midwest it is blazing. I am so hot and tired of the 95+ temps. How are you staying cool? We have the air cranked up high but when you step outside it is like you can not even breath.

I am in the midwest too. But I stay in my research lab most of the time - so it doesnt matter. In any case, I spent a lot of time in south India - where the summer temperatures were usually over 100 and got used to such a weather.

I sleep during the hottest part of the day (usually 11-6) and work at night from 11-7.

I simultaneously avoid the heat, have time to train and spend with the family, and get to see the sunset and sunrise every day. The extra money isn't bad either...

Come over to the UK for a break. It's rainy, cold and miserable.

I was in London in Wednesday and it was very humid. The tube was one heaving, foetid, clammy mass of misery. It was like a vision of hell. Those poor buggers. I came back to Wiltshire thanking my lucky stars that my daily commute isn't like that.
