Here in Atlanta, the weather's starting to cool down. But before we bid adieu to the heat for good on the East Coast, we wanted to pass along this shot from a reader of the Los Angeles Times—she was apparently fed up of the heat they've been getting lately. When you get desperate, modern conveniences like refrigerators and ovens become multi-tasking saviors.

You see, the weather out in California is still hovering over the 100° mark—which apparently requires the cooling power that only comes from sitting inside the fridge.

This hits home for your dear blogger. I feel like I spent most of my childhood in Miami with my face in our family's freezer. When my allergies began to act up, I knew the cold, dry air would keep me calm and sneeze-less.

But we've also heard that some of our Northern friends will gather 'round their gas stovetop or an open oven for a quick warm-up. It's like a clever home hack for the fireplace-less.

Have any of you ever turned to your tech and appliances in desperate times? Leave a comment and let us know the unconventional ways you use your gear!
