We have little window air conditioning units, but not in our bedroom. I love a cold bedroom, and this heat is just not cooperating with me.
I read online that you can quickly cool a room if you position your fan in front of a large bowl of ice. I set up my system earnestly and happily late last night. My supportive husband watches me, but I think he's laughing on the inside.
Maybe I'm imagining things, but this very simple solution let me fall asleep in a cool room for the first time in weeks. So simple!
I've learned so much in this heat.
I didn't even think of the possibility that one could cool a room well without the clangy old air conditioner or the expensive central air (we rent a house without it). I'm realizing how hard it is to go back to basic things--I can't even imagine them sometimes--when I'm in need.
I like my fan and bowl of ice. I like the simplicity of it.
Do you know how to stay cool without AC?
