Sit in a nice cool tub of water and rehydrate. Epsom salts sometimes helps as does a little salt in the water. Make sure you don't get low on salt in your body or you will be tired and weak. A cup of coffee most times fires up the bodies cooling system. cold coffee gives you energy. Soda pop makes you sweat. I suppose you already know all that though. I hope you can cool down there soon. It got up in the low 80s around here today but only about seventy five here in the woods. Do you have a basement on your place?

Frozen clothing has to be hard to put on no? I remember frozen towels when I was a kid. We didnt have a clothes dryer. We hung the wash outside on a line. I remember the towels creeking as I folded them because they werent dry they were frozen.

I'm in Memphis TN and we will see 106+ this weekend, not including the heat index. We even had a report about some of news stations lying about the temps as to not alarm the residents....
at 1st, they said 99, 100, then 102, then 104, now 106.
2 summers ago, we saw temp with heat index to reach 115-120.....this is the summer when the streets in New Orleans buckled up and the weathermen here in Memphis were cooking various foods on the sidewalk to demonstrate the heat.
