    In the old days they used to put ice in a shallow container in front of the fan before A/C but at 100'+ I don't know how long a block of ice would last.

    At a kennel I worked at, we put a sprinkler on the roof and a couple of times a day we would.d turn it on to cool the roof. It made a big difference inside(while the roof was damp)
