remnantprep: Arrghh 39c where I am! Even though we have aircon going and fans its still warm. :D Daughter has been through three ice blocks and a cold bath! Dec 2, 2016 9:51:11 GMT 10
remnantprep: Kitchen thermometer is 33c inside!!!! Dec 2, 2016 9:52:04 GMT 10
Chloe: Yep it got to 33 inside today here :( Dec 2, 2016 10:00:21 GMT 10

ziggysdad: Can't say the same about outside Dec 2, 2016 10:08:08 GMT 10
remnantprep: Lucky you Ziggy!! I was telling my daughter when I was here age we didnt have air con only fans etc and would hop in a cold bath or play under the hose or sprinkler etc to cool down. Dec 2, 2016 10:13:19 GMT 10
remnantprep: Makes me wonder how we would cope now if SHTF happened and no air con etc Dec 2, 2016 10:14:01 GMT 10
Chloe: I've never lived in a place with aircon ha Dec 2, 2016 10:20:51 GMT 10
remnantprep: :D Once you have them you become too soft anyway LOL :) Dec 2, 2016 10:31:46 GMT 10
remnantprep: You rely on them more and don't find more creative ways to cool down lol Dec 2, 2016 10:32:20 GMT 10
VegHead: We just open the windows ... And believe it or not, our wood cooking stove is on full bore at the moment even though it's rather warm outside. My wife refuses to use gas or lecky stuff. Oh, we do have ac units though .... Just in case it gets really warm! Dec 2, 2016 11:45:39 GMT 10
Chloe: Yup all I have is fan and windows haha. Dec 2, 2016 12:45:32 GMT 10
shinester: Veghead, I suppose you could continue it all year round if you had a summer kitchen, aka outside. Dec 2, 2016 22:04:11 GMT 10
