It won't work in FL, of course, but in drier climates, having a large
flat pan of water sitting out may help. When the humidity is low,
anything that raises it *seems* to make you feel cooler.
We were in India one June (I quit asking for the weather report the day
the temp hit 115 before noon), and we would throw a glass of water onto
the stone floor every once in a while. I was amazed at how well it
worked ... of course the in-laws weren't thrilled at this display of
"Country-cuzzin" behaviour ...
In FL and other humid climates, any kind of air movement helps. Rube
Goldberg undoubtedly invented something that created a breeze with
minimal erg-input ... Two servants waving a palm frond, or a palm frond
attached to a rope and pulley, or to a pendulum that gets a passing swat
when it slows down ...
