Stay hydrated, take cool showers.  Keep the dogs off your bed.  Use a fan along with the ac at night.  We had two 90ish days and it looks like today will be 90.  It was strange, it hovered around 80 last night.  I put the ac on 77 and we all had fans in our bedrooms.  Sleep is important for a healthy mind and body so tossing and turning all night from the heat is just not an option.  I don't know what I would do if I lived in a part of the country that baked for weeks or months at a time.  It must be exhausting.

I am in AZ. But, I am one of those crazy people for whom the dry heat does wonders for my bones. We do have AC but still spend much time outside,

 

At the least get yourself one of those portable room air conditioners so you and the dogs can get some sleep!

@goldensrbest   Everyone in this area has AC.  You could live here without.  However, they only cool so much.  When it's 100°,  your interior tempis going to be about 80°.

@Kachina624. When it is so hot there do you have what we on the north shore call brown outs?  It's when the electric  grid gets overloaded and nothing works at full power.   If so does that happen often?  Something else I need to think about 

😀


@Travone   No, thankfully that has never been a problem here.

Well....today the LOW was 96°!    And for Saturday, they are predicting 118° or higher.  This is the 14th day of 110+ in a row.   All I can say is, "IT'S TOO LATE NOW"...di

@Desertdi    They constantly report your weather in our local TV in sympathy, I guess.  I personally think Phoenix, like Houston, is unfit for human habitation.
