Spray yourself with a garden spray with water in it.

Yes...yes...don't forget to use water in the garden spray instead of custard !!  ::)

Have a cool shower......go sit in front of the fan......stand in front of the freezer/fridge.......take all your clothes off and pretend you're a polar bear....

At a 105 the water will be steam. I wouldn't suggest spraying yourself with steam under any circumstances.

If you can get some ice, put some on your wrists.

oh, I thought that had gone now and we were all Celcius. This makes a little more sense now.

It's freezing here, could you PM me some of your extra heat?

Karen why not have a cool drink of water or juice with ice in it.
I hope that helps and  keep in the shade as much as you can.
Feel better soon

Its a hundred and 108 degrees fahrenheight right now in the shade...... and I have been drinking water and ice... ice was later but it has all helped with the cold showers I have had three over the lat few hours!
I am fixing to be picked up and taken to town to a nice air conditioned restaurant to eat and cool off.. I don't have air conditioning or a fan right now!...

I feel better then before thank you all for the tips my brain felt a bit scrambled in the heat and I was struggling..couldn't think straight and totally forgot about ice until Turnipsock mentioned it!!

Thank you all..


By the way it is supposed to continue through the weekend.....

throw=a ball
through =to go through something???
thru= ???
threw= Having already thrown a ball.

Yikes I am lost..LOL

They are open Their isn't a single breeze out here that I can feel.... hopefully the resturant will have an air conditioner.. I got a bad sunburn just from 20 minutes riding in the car with short sleeves on my right arm.. My meds seem to be awful in the heat and dehydrating me too boot... I am drinking like a fish and still thirsty! My headache has gotten better with the cold showers and ice...

Thanks Neily.. Everything will be ok.. Thank you all..



LOL.. I might Neily... I might! LOL..!!! I should have fixed mine a long time ago and didn't I need to take it apart and check the wiring!

I find eating ice helps.  Just grab an ice cube and crunch away!

thanks....I will do that today. it just dawned outside and the sun is still hidden, but the heat is already rising this morning. It stayed hot all night...Cooled down enough to semi sleep with all the windows and doors open.....

 seem to have had a raccoon visit....during the night...... left me a bit of a surprise in the kitchen....

Just need to close the door tonight.... or I'll end up nose to nose with the bearor the bob cat licking my face...
Well I feel considerable better this morning and will be prepared for this wave today..
I must say yesterdays heat just hit like a storm.. boom it was on me......I was caught with my pants down so to speak... heats funny like that... you don't realize until its on you that you are in trouble...I think my diuretics were working against me yesterday.
