Here is my (Deena's) attempt at being cool:
Jana here - I am a warm weather kind of gal. I just love these hot, lazy summer days. I decided that a siesta is in order. And I need a pillow regardless of the temperature outside, so I made a crisp, cotton, strawberry covered pillowcase to snooze my little head upon. And then I crocheted a little bit of trim around the border. It's a really soft yarn. I would love to be able to tell you how wonderful it feels, but I can't pry it away from my girls' precious little mitts. Guess I'd better make some more....
I really don't like hot hot weather - you know, those steamy miserable days and so my coping mechanism to BEAT THE HEAT is to sit inside an air conditioned craft room and play with paper and glue. These cards made me smile because even if I can't get to the pool or beach, I can at least stamp some cards with beachy/pool themes. One regular card and two gatefold cards for your viewing and I had to show the interior of Ms. Bikini Bovine's card because I adore a good or bad pun!
I'm like Rosemary, not a big fan of the heat. I grew up on the ocean, so living in this landlocked furnace right now is painful! I was looking at some old photos of my grandmother and thought how wonderful it would be to be soaking in a lake right now. Just floating around.
I don't know if you can read it, but there is some handwriting on one of these old photos-"in bathing suit". It's from 1915. At least they didn't have to worry about the ozone layer.
Gini here - I was so lucky because Spanky knew the answer to Beat the Heat straight away.
Her advice is to stay in the fridge during the day and come out to play at night when you can comfortably rush about with the wind in your fur being all windswept and dangerous.
So that's what I did, I created a night scene.
I've provided the scene but you've got to provide the windswept and dangerousness 'cos I'm too shy. *cough*

I hate the hot weather... I think I was a penguin in a former life. I have the air on, and the fans on. Keep your cool everyone!
Show us how you're keeping cool.
