Pat Shingleton: "Throwing in the Towel"
My daughter Katie gifted me a "Cool-Towel" while doing my outdoor chores. The chemically enhanced towel provides relief once dampened. Years ago, my friend, Todd Rossnagel shared a story about his Dad, J.R. During his golf outings, a small bucket contained hand towels that were soaked in water and rubbing alcohol. Once he "wrung-out" the towel the alcohol advanced a cooling process. Alcohol evaporates quicker than water when it interacts with hot air. The evaporation process gathers and incorporates energy to activate the phase change from liquid to gas. Our golf group enjoys an icy towel across the brow that provides relief for a few holes. Yesterday was Heat Stroke Prevention Day and a reminder to keep cool for the next 50 days.
