    I started dousing again 2 weeks ago and it sure felt good. However tonight was the first good douse of the season for me. While the day here in Carolina was beautiful and in the low 70's it is cooling off quickly as soon as the sun goes down. A few minutes ago when I stepped outside and could see my breath I knew it was going to be better than the previous 2 weeks. Oh yeah. The bucket has been sitting outside all evening and the temp is around 45F. I'm looking forward to the morning, I know ice is to much to hope for but maybe a light frost. I know it is only going to get better but it sure felt good tonight. Praise the Lord and pass the bucket.

    Where it's real hot..
    Wow...times have really changed. As my health conditions have subsided, dousing is a normality in my life nowdays. I still don't douse as much as I should...it's never a pleasant experiance, especially living in an apartment complex ;)

    Word of warning...if you do douse, make sure it's outside in bare feet standing on ground. The problems that I experianced from my earlier post (that arnisador linked) were due to dousing in the tub.
