Guzman Shows His Cool!!

Ice is everything to an inmate during the summer.  In HOD last year, they ran out of ice around 5 pm daily.  A big quality of life  issue, an extra 20 lbs of ice goes a very long way.  Two weeks ago, they  had a full cooler of ice, approximately 50 lbs per day.

We’re talking an extra 10 hours of ice, a huge amount of time each day. Inmates pass the hours chewing on ice, this is a physical activity that passes time and cools the heck out of anyone who chews it.

The fun quality for the inmate with unlimited ice to chew- it’s divine, a very small but hugely significant upgrade for the  inmates. Big orange igloo coolers hold the big bags of ice. HOD is hot, no AC and one large industrial fan to cool the roughly 15 X 35 ft communal cells.
