It's Too Hot! Tip #1

What to do when it's 96 in the shade and 105 according to the temperature at the bank?
Tip #1: Find a large body of cool water and jump in!  This may be the ocean if you have wheels and a bit of time on your hands (and a/c in the car); it may also be the river, a lake, a pool -- or maybe just your bathtub.
Watch out for sprinklers in the mid-afternoon, though -- lots of that great water evaporates into the air -- and that dry grass is dangerous on bare feet!
And don't forget your sunscreen -- the sun reflects off that water and becomes much stronger and harmful to your skin.
