We're Having a Heat Wave

Thing you can do:
  • Bring a bottle of water.  Refill it if needed between classes.
  • Dress in layers.  If you wear a sweatshirt or sweater, wear something underneath that you don't mind showing. 
  • Do bring a jacket in case the air conditioning gets carried away. 
  • Realize that some schools don't have air conditioning at all -- ever!
  • Think how much hotter you'd be if you lived in Arizona or Afghanistan or the Sahara Desert.
  • Picture yourself with Shackleton and his crew on their Antarctic Expedition. 
  • Think how great it is that it's almost summer vacation!
