Here are some Suggestions to stay cool!Hot-weather2-680x365

The Pend Oreille River Valley is currently experiencing incredibly warm weather for this time of year, actually for any time of year in this region. As I write this it’s 10:00 A.M. and already reaching into the mid 80’s with an expected high in the 100’s. In fact right now we are currently experiencing a heat advisory and breaking records that were set more than 60 years ago and  in some cases records that were set more than 100 years ago.

Staying Cool

When temperatures reach this level it’s important to stay cool and keep hydrated. Be sure to drink lot’s of water, stay in air conditioned rooms and check on friends and family. If you plan on being active be sure to take plenty of breaks.

Many of us in the region do not have air conditioner units due to the fact that we generally don’t need them, however, there are many public places that do have air conditioning that we can take advantage of.

The public libraries of Pend-Oreille are an excellent way to enjoy wonderful air conditioning free of charge. Pick up a good book and a comfy seat and chill out for the afternoon. If books aren’t your thing, the library have more to offer, such as art’s and crafts, free dvd’s and computer terminals at your disposal.

The Pend Oreille River Valley have plenty of air conditioned restaurants that would love to have you join them and enjoy a cool beverage, a meal or an appetizer. Here’s a list of restaurants in the area that you might want to check out on these exceptionally hot days.


If you do plan to be active outdoors remember the suggestions above, stay hydrated and take plenty of breaks. In the area we are fortunate to have more than a few lakes and rivers too choose from. Have a look at the complete list of lakes in Pend Oreille.
