Well it is supposed to get very hot today. a hot summer overall this year. I thought I would start a little series of helpful hints to stay cool outside and inside your home or workplace. I have lived here in the humidity and sweat of East Texas all my life. I wouldn't have it any other way. That being said I have a deep love affair with fans and A/C. The question in everyone's mind inevitably is, has it always been this hot!? Well the answer is yes, and for a long time with no A/C.
