    What what did our grandparents do before air conditioning? What did our great-grandparents do before electric fans? What did our great-great-grandparents do on very, hot days? One thing for sure based on this story; common sense has certainly nosed-dived since our grandparents days.

      Again you open your mouth with a question. I will enlighten you. 1. We did not have global warming 2. Most homes had one car. 3. Check your facts the heat and humidity did not get as high as the past days throughout the US, back when our Great grandparents and grandparents were here. Common Sense tells me, to carry extra water in a cooler you never know who may need it.
