Staying cool

44 degrees again today.

My keeping cool solutions.

1 - painter drop sheets nailed to verandah to stop sun.

2 - kids pools etc filled with water in case the power goes off.  
(No power-no pump-no water)
We have one each to sit in.

3 - full tank of fuel, if the power goes off we can go for a drive and crank up the car air-con.

4 - mattresses on floor and the four of us sleeping in one room under air-con.


  1. Oh wow! That is hot!! You poor souls. Ya gotta do what ya gotta do to stay cool... Good for you!
    We are totally at the other end of the thermometer from you here... too bad we just can't balance it all out... 8-)

  2. your solutions sound a lot like when I was a kid in Kansas and Missouri. We would sleep on the floor in the lower level near the screen door for coolness. Good luck with your weather and fire troubles over there right now.
