Living in the desert, I feel especially experienced in finding ways to cool off. When I was growing up in Northern Virginia, we had no air conditioning. So, I used to do things like play in the creek or fill the wheelbarrow with water and lie back in it. As an adult, I find playful and fun, sometimes tasty ways to stay cool. Let me share some -
No, sprinklers aren't just for kids! I use mine at night after the sun is gone because the desert sun and redheaded-skin do not get along! Our nights here can be in the 90s for the low, so I'm not chilling too much.
Ice Cream Man
If you don't have an ice cream man to pester, I suggest you hit the frozen foods aisle. Bomb pops, chocolate eclairs, individual sundaes are still for sale. And, Otter Pops - are always available.
Slushies and Daiquiris
What a summertime dream! Make your own slushies and margaritas and daiquiris.
Outdoor Misting System
An outdoor misting system is a dream, especially in drier climates.
Pour your drinks down an ice luge for a little summer ice bar party!
