That sounds like a good plan on such a hot day...er hot week. I can't help but think of those without power, which means no AC or even a fan to cool off with.
In cases where the power is off for very long, it is not possible to get water flowing unless the towers have emergency generators. So, even a cool shower is not possible for those suffering.
Hopefully, the power will be restored soon and storms will not knock it out again.
Yesterday, one of our steam pressers was out for an appointment at the cleaners where I work as a seamstress. Lucky me knows how to operate the presses. Of course, I was more than willing to help out (job security and the alterations always goes on summer vacation for some reason. It could be that everyone is wearing shorts and T-shirts).
After working all day in the back of the cleaners where inside temperatures rise above the outside temperatures, I went home and took a cool shower. I tried not to think of the heat all that much while drinking cold water like a fish all day. However, my boss came through announcing that the thermastat on the wall said it was over 120 degrees inside. If not for the fans, I think we would have all had heatstroke.
