I'm in Eastern Arkansas, in the Delta; land of the mosquitoes. We're in the middle of yet another heat wave. How do y'all beat the heat? My teens are outside with a fan, have access to shade, one drinker has electrolytes, the other is just plain water, I continuously change the water and try to keep it good and cold with ice and such, and I offer frozen goodies. The heat indexes have been 105+ for days and I just can't seem to get everybody cooled off. My two Cornishes have been my biggest concern the last couple of days because they're both so big and panting so heavily. Any tips? Anything you've tried that's worked well? Our 10-day forecast shows a tiny break in the heat but not much. I'm so ready for Fall!!!! TIA!!
