While we continue to Celebrate the Calgary Stampede with a week of surprises and lots of cash to be won, Calgarians are looking for ways to beat the heat.

Southern Alberta is in the grips of a heat wave, with temperatures close to 30 C in the city Tuesday, and expected to remain in the high 20s throughout the week.

We do anticipate over the next couple of days some late afternoon or early evening thunderstorms developing.” said Environment Canada meteorologist Bill McMurtry.

While that happens and the temperatures drop, here are some ways you can cool down under the glaring sun:

Set the Dial Higher

If you have central air, set your thermostat above 78 degrees (all temperatures cited here are in degrees Fahrenheit). You’ll save 5 to 8 percent on cooling costs with each degree above that mark. For a typical household, setting the thermostat at 80 degrees saves 10 to 15 percent; raising it to 85 degrees will save 35 to 55 percent.

Wear loose fitting light colored clothing.

Lighter colors attract less heat and with loose clothing it will allow for more air-flow to help keep you cool.

Change your routine.

As nice as that run may be early afternoon on a Saturday, summer is not the time for it! Adjust your activities so they are happening earlier or later in the day when the temperatures are cooler and the sun isn’t beating on you as harshly.

Snack on treats from the freezer

Munch on frozen grapes, berries or bananas, whip up some smoothies, or make homemade Popsicles with the kids.

Spritz yourself.

Keep a spray bottle in the refrigerator, and when the going gets hot, give yourself a good squirt. “As the water evaporates, it cools you.” says John Lehnhardt, an elephant expert at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, in Lake Buena Vista, Florida

Swig often. To replace the moisture that you lose as you perspire, be sure to drink. As you lose water to dehydration, your body temperature rises, so replacing fluids is essential to keeping cool. Avoid beverages that contain alcohol, caffeine, or lots of sugar, which are dehydrating.

Go for a swim

…even if its in a plastic pool in the back yard!

June has started and with June comes summer as well as the all new June Specials at BingoAngels! Check out all the fantastic promotions on the Bingo Schedules page, but let me give you a short overview of what really is going on here!

There will be some Jackpot Fun in the BingoAngels Bingo rooms where during every Thursday to Sunday in June the “Wave” Pattern will play in Maxis H.O.B. for $100 Cash and in Jump N Jive room for $150!

With summer almost around the corner, well, at least they are definitely closer now than last month, I am determined to get in shape for my fabulous new bathing suit and matching hat.. I love the 50s and the glamour of the movies of this glorious time and would love to be able to strut around in something like this.. Obviously with flowers in my hair like a true 70s child..

BingoAngels are gearing up for summer and planning some exciting promotions and prizes to match a fun sunny summer. Please pass any requests for what you would like to be playing for in this direction! What a great opportunity to suggest ways to a) save some money, b) get a free holiday, c) sort out entrance tickets to a fun park for the whole family.. BingoAngels are listening!

But for now, back to spring and real life for a while.. And my all year long hobby – Bingo!

According to me the first of May means that Summer is just around the corner.. I cannot wait for summer to begin, we have had sunshine already but lots of rain as well, but I guess that is good for the plants..
