It is no surprise that at the end of August we are still HOT here in the South. What’s a little different is the severity of the heat not only here, but as far north as Boston, MA. We are back to Heat Advisories being issued in many cities and towns. We are lucky in the south as we have air conditioning pretty much everywhere, which I know isn’t necessarily so in the Northeast. We can put this 2018 summer into the history books!
So once again, 1) keep hydrated, 2) make sure your pets have water and shade, 3) carry a hand fan or misting pump bottle with you (we have the Windchiller Handheld Mist Fan), 4) include a portable misting system if you are out for the day in a park, camping, fishing, and the like, or make sure there is water nearby -even a garden hose to splash yourself, 5) take LOTS of breaks in the shade, 6) wear a hat or walk with and sit under an umbrella, 7) and don’t forget your sunglasses. Your eyes also need protection, and finally, 8) if you feel sick, dizzy, losing strength – head for medical attention ASAP!
You know that it will continue to be hot through September and likely October. It’s not too late to install a patio misting system. We recommend our 72FT Patio Mister (Multiple lengths available.) Includes everything you need to install and operate your misting system except the water. Completely pre-assembled, quick and easy to set up, connects to a standard garden hose and works with standard household water pressure. No electricity is needed to operate this low-pressure system.
Doesn’t matter whether you have a patio or a balcony, you will feel up to 30-Degrees F cooler using this system. That’s enough to keep you safe from the effects of boiling hot temperatures and will allow you to enjoy the outdoors.
Stay Cool-Stay Safe,
