So far this summer, it has stayed somewhere between comfortable and tolerable in our 100+ year old home without central air. After living here for 7 years I've gotten 'the system' down to a science. The system involves knowing when to have windows open, which fans to turn on, which blinds need to be shut at certain times of the day. etc.
But during the day, rather than being cooped up in our dark and comfortable house, it's nice to go out and DO something. Here are some ideas of things to do in Chelsea when it's HOT:
- Ice skating at the Arctic Coliseum in Chelsea. Need I say more?
- Open Swim at Beach Middle School - for the most part, I am a big fan of OUTDOOR swimming, but with very young kids or old wimps (like me), sometimes it's even too hot for that. Call (734) 433-2260 for pool information.
- Hang out at the library. I am just thrilled with Chelsea's new library. It is beautiful, well equipped and just really a nice place to hang out. Not to mention all the events and activities that go on there nearly every day.
- Ice cream! Lots of options: Scooples or Zou Zou's in downtown Chelsea, or Twisters by Pierce Park are the big faves.
In the meantime, I'm off to make some iced tea before it's time to pick the kids up from camp.
