Yup, I'm just outside of Portland, and we've had a few nasty hot spells (for here, anyway) looks like 97-100ish for the next few days.

My house doesn't even cool down at night- the last time we had a short heat wave, we didn't cool below 87 until 3 or 4 in the morning. Can't wait to move.

Anyway, I ended up completely changing how I deal with the cage- they've got coco husk/soil substrate now, quite deep, and very moist on one side heading to dry on the other.

I still keep 'em on the floor, no lights even for display, and in the coolest room. Not enough, but a start. I've definitely noticed they don't leave the deep wet side of the cage much right now. Still trying different ways to keep them safe.
