Damn. That'll be that thing. What's it called, again? World heating? Earth boiling? You know, that thing Trump denies is real.
Way back in 1990, my family moved from New York to Florida. That first night, our AC was broken. I, a wise 8 year old, declared unto the night at the top of my lungs, “WHY DID WE MOVE TO HELL?!”
Arizona here and we went through that in June/July of this year. Ugh!.... Wet sheets. In fact, wet them and keep them in the freezer when you're gone. When you get home, they'll be ice cold and you'll start off cool and adjust to the temperature as they thaw. Also, I loved my "tent." I put two fans at each end of the bed and draped a wet sheet over them. The fans kept the sheets up off me, the air kept flowing, and the moisture kept me cool. Keep a spray bottle of water in the tent with you. Water bottles should be kept in the freezer at all times. Keep a frozen one under your pillow.
My AC conked out in the middle of a Las Vegas summer so I understand the misery completely. I found soaking a teeshirt in icy water helped, also keeping another shirt in icy water to change into in the middle of the night helps. Bonus-Sexy wet teeshirt winner every time.
