Hello Noel and Orchidians everywhere it’s hot, Noel gave us her
solution for cooling off during hot outdoor shows :
Today, I took along a cooler of ice, and a sports towel. I wet it,
then wrapped some ice in it, and wore it across the back of my
neck. It was like magic!
Here’s another neat thing - an Arctic Bandana. I got mine from
Harbor Freight, but can’t find them offered right now. The fabric
tube has some dry gel chunks that when soaked in water, expand to
look like a sausage. This it tied around the neck and cools by
evaporation. Really nifty. I’ve also seen these sold at craft
fairs. Judy in Kansas, where it does get HOT.
