It's hot, hot, hot!

In the Midwest and throughout many parts of U.S., a dramatic heatwave has descended and doesn't seem to be leaving anytime soon. To get you through the long, hot days, we've put together some resources that may be fun and may prove useful:
  • For Fishermen/women that don't mind the heat: Fishing in Wisconsin
    (from the Wisconsin Dept. of Natural Resources) 
  •  For those interested in getting the right SPF: Consumer Guide to Sunscreen
    (from the US Food and Drug Administration)
  • For those that want to buy the most energy efficient air conditioner: Energy Star Program
    (from the US EPA)
  • For those that want to explore the Great Lakes from the comfort of their air-conditioned living room: The Great Lakes Circle Tour
    (from UW Sea Grant)
This list could go on forever. Do you have any suggestions on how to ope with the heat? Send an email to askwater@aqua.wisc.edu and we'll post an update.

Stay safe out there!
