Here is a block of ice wrapped in a damp towel with a fan blowing the cool air at Chico. That works well - although the house does not get cooler - 86 in here today. Block of ice lasts about 8 hrs!
Here is Racer sitting on the "frozen" stone tile. He did not stay there long. Neither did any one else!
Another "swamp cooler" blowing cool air at the 3 cages where the pairs live. You see Benji back there. We closed the windows and all the bunns just layed low - put them outside finally about 8 pm and they'll stay out until 11pm. House does not cool down - this 4 day hot spell is total unusual for here .. summer evenings in the Pac. NW are always sweatshirt or sweater times!
The hollyhocks sure do like it. We have soaker-hoses and gave all the beds a good soaking last weekend so grow and bloom is the name of the outside game.
