Welcome to Texas.

The state where every day is summer, anything under 100 degrees is cool and 60 is winter.

We asked for you to show us the ways you keep cool, and the results were exactly as expected: Water was in your cooling off solution.

But it's not always about diving straight into cool, crisp water. Some of you showed us it can be about staying inside and basking in air-conditioned bliss.

Others showed us it's about looking cute in hats, and some even showed us it's about knowing when to be outside - like fishing on the beautiful Gulf Coast right at sunset.

Here's to staying cool as summer really begins to kick in.
