Sleeps With Ice Packs
Somewhere between 1 and 3 am lately I always wake up pouring sweat and the sooner I can cool myself down, the sooner I can fall back to sleep.
With monsoon season approaching it is not cooling down at night the way it does the other 10 months of the year. Mid-June to mid-August it doesn't really cool off that much until closer to sunrise.
When I wake up like I did again tonight, it's still warm and humid outside and opening the windows doesn't help.
Iris had to know what I was doing, of course, when I went into the other bedroom.
If that doesn't work, I'm digging out the coffin coolers from the garage and immersing myself in ice water, like they do at Badwater. I knew all that Badwater experience would pay off someday!
