Staying cool in sweltering heat

The month of November has been a hot one so far, with temperatures rising to 34.5 last weekend in the Bay of Plenty.

SunLive slapped on some sunscreen and headed down to The Strand asking members of the public how they keep cool in the high temperatures and if they are looking forward to summer.

Tara Hancock, Palmerston North

How are you keeping cool in this weather?

Wearing shorts and a singlet, sitting close to water is about all I can do at the moment.

Are you looking forward to summer weather?

Yes definitely.

 

Lyn Taylor, Tauranga Central

How are you keeping cool in this weather?

Sitting here, putting my feet in the water. Wishing I was swimming. Oh, and drinking beer.

Are you looking forward to summer weather?

Yes, I am, I just love it.

 

Tania Peck, The Avenues

How are you keeping cool in this weather?

Lots of swimming – either at The Strand or Mount beach.

Are you looking forward to summer weather?

It’s a bit of a shock to my system, I just came back from London this morning. I am looking forward to the warmth, blue sky and being outside.

 

Stacey Taka, Matapihi

How are you keeping cool in this weather?

We just sit in any shade we can, run around in the fountain or go down to the Mount. Using the hose. Just any water we can.

Are you looking forward to summer weather?

It’s too hot, way too hot. I get real frustrated in the heat.

 

Holly Johnson, Matua

How are you keeping cool in this weather?

Using the fountains, the sprinkler at home and hiding inside with the air conditioner going.

Are you looking forward to summer weather?

This climate is good with a newborn to be able to get out and do stuff. Twenty-eight degrees is pushing it a little bit though.

 

Juan Minhinnick, Tauriko

How are you keeping cool in this weather?

Sitting under the tree, drink heaps of water, I have got my oranges as well. Stay hydrated.

Are you looking forward to summer weather?

Yeah definitely, you don’t have to work as hard. It’s good to come down here and spend some time with the kids while they swim.
