It has been a hot summer this year in Chicago. For that reason, I was surprised when my parents told me that Chicago had a heat advisory yesterday. I hadn't kept my eye on the weather, but sure enough, the heat index was 105 at its peak. It just felt like another hot, muggy day in Chicago.
If it feels like 105 degrees outside, it is even warmer in our apartment when we don't continually run our window-unit air conditioning. With such punishing heat, it is hard to do anything aside from trying to stay cool.
So, given that I am unable to think about anything but the heat, here's the poll question for the week:
How do you beat the summer heat?
(a) Crank up the AC
(b) Ice cream, lots and lots of ice cream
(c) Go out on the town or to some coffee shop (to use their AC)
(d) Go to a water park or fountain and get drenched.
As always, the poll is open for a week. Vote early and often (and on the sidebar) and tell your friends to vote. If it is hot where you are, do your best to stay cool. If you have some beautiful summer weather, enjoy some of it for me. Regardless, I'm anxious to hear what you have to say.
