Downey hit 102 degrees today. That is very hot for us who are used to an average temperature in the mid-80s at this time of year. So each of us spent part of our day trying to keep cool. Some of us can spend our day in an air-conditioned building of one sort or another. Maybe work or home or the city library.
When our children were much younger, we had a 5'x18" inflatable pool that we filled up with cool water for them to get some respite from the heat. Even I went in. Although I had to turn over from front to back to get each side wet and therefore cool. But these children have an inflatable water slide to play on. It has a collecting pool at the bottom that they land in. They were definitely cool.
How did you stay cool as a child?
