    This thread is for anyone worried about extreme heat. A place to offer advice and suggestion's for all on how to prepare for it and how to cope a little better once its here. 

    A few from myself here;

    • Having a fan (possibly place a thin cold damp towel or cloth over it so it blows out cooler air into the room)
    • Keep hydrated
    • Cold/cool shower
    • Being in a pool (don't get burned as UV will be high)
    • Don't take pets on long walks and make sure they have plenty of water too, and watch out for very hot surfaces. Grass will be okay.
    • Try your best to not do strenuous activities especially outdoors but also in non air conditioned areas.

    Keep curtains and windows closed to prevent your house becoming a greenhouse. Should save you a few degrees.

    I agree, especially with a fan on so you get the cooler air circulating inside without escaping and being overtook by the high temperatures.

    I think the heat haters club is already doing this sort of thing, so I'd recommend heading over there for these discussions.
