The Corbett household is hot. We don’t have air, and have no hopes of being able to afford air, so we use fans at night. Last night we suffered a major loss: our oldest, bestest fan bit the dust. It’s 45 years old, made of solid metal, we used pliers to turn it off and on due to a broken knob, and when it was put on high speed the noise rivaled that of a small plane engine.
And wow could that thing pull in some cool air!
The new plastic fans just don’t compare.
But, having lived in the midwest for a number of years, the hubby and I are full of tricks to keep cool. My favorite is to soak a washcloth and then lay it flat in the freezer. In fifteen minutes it’s frozen solid and ready to cool down any body part you desire. Make a few of those ahead of time and you’re ready for the hottest part of the day.
