Yesterday the heat index nearly hit 110 degrees in the sun.
It’s really miserable right now when it isn’t raining.
I am used to getting sunburns on our pale skin, however it’s surprising that simply walking from the grocery store exit to our parked motorcar at the back of the lot causes our skin to burn. I’d get home only to find out that our face as well as neck were burnt after looking in the bathroom mirror. I took a bottle aloe out of our medicine lodgeet several afternoons later when the sunburn started to peel. If I was out at the beach for a few minutes, I could understand the sunburns, however not from being in the sun for 15 minutes at most. At home I have just as several issues with heat, as it constantly finds its way into our home through leaks in the attic. I have a central a/c system, however it can’t keep the home cooler than 76 degrees. When it was installed, it was really insufficient for our needs. If I could afford a new system, I’d install one in a heartbeat. The best that I can possibly do at this point is buy a few fans to transfer the cooling system around the house. I decided to buy a ceiling fan for our living room. I’ve heard that they’re worth their value in how much they affect indoor comfort. If you can’t get a stronger a/c system, get a few strong fans. Between the new ceiling fan in the living room as well as the box fan I put in our doorway at evening, I haven’t slept this well in weeks! I thought I’d be sleeping with only a thin cotton sheet for the rest of the summer, however now I’m comfortable enough to use a blanket again.
