Phew. It's tough to think of anything except how hot it is outside. In honor of our five day heatwave, we offer some blog posts that will help you cool off (or help others stay cool).

The perfect antidote for a hot day that's also a tough day at the office? Metrocurean tells us where to find the best crushed ice cocktails. (I'll buy the first round!)

Comings and Goings blogs about cool desserts for warm weather. Included among her entries: coconut water-based sorbets. Low cal and delicious!

The D.C.-based non-profit, So Others Might Eat is seeking donations of fans and window units for homebound seniors, many of whom do not have air conditioning in their homes. Fans and window units that are new or in excellent condition can be delivered to SOME. For additional information, contact Kate Topping at 202.581.8000 or

Greater Greater Washington poses an interesting question in light of The Post's recent coverage of Tuesday's one year anniversary of the Metro Red Line crash. Dave Alpert (who also blogs for The Post's Local Blogger Network) wonders: is The Post too negative when it comes to reporting on Metro?

Moving advice. If there’s a move in your future, you’ll appreciate this post from D.C. Urban Dad who offers “10 Random Lessons Learned from Moving.” Lesson number one from our urban dad? Hire professionals. Sorry about your leg.
