And since this is still just the start of summer, it seemed like a good time to encourage you all to share your personal tips and tricks for surviving a summer heatwave.

I'm sure the rest of the Ys community is dying to know. So please get cracking and either leave your comments below, or submit a post via your unique member dashboard.
