I Want To Do What Frozen Things Do….In Summer!!!

Okay, I really just want to BE perpetually frozen right now. Maybe Queen Elsa can help? Or maybe I’m just dreaming of a visit from Idina Menzel. 😉

Right now, my weather app is reporting the same news. Every day.

Feels like 106 degrees?!

Feels like 106 degrees?!

As they say, it’s not the heat, it’s the humidity. When the index is at 74%, and the “feels like” temperature is well into triple digits, it’s truly oppressive. It’s the kind of heat that makes it hard to breathe because the air is so heavy, the kind that causes you to sweat just walking from your car into the house. Alas, these are the joys of Florida in summer.  And for those of us on steroids and other RA medications, it becomes impossible to stay cool.

My body temperature has gotten so out-of-whack that my Eastern medicine doctor has prescribed something called “Quell Fire” for me. It’s a Chinese herbal mix, and it really does help.  I also love my Frog toggs towel, powerful electric fans, swimming pools, and when I get desperate, ice packs. But until things cool off around here, I’ll be forgoing outdoor activities whenever possible. A/C is a lovely thing.

What tricks do you have for staying cool in the heat and humidity of summer?
