Why can't we bottle this heat and save it for winter when we need it?
I keep thinking the complementary thing during winter, as in how nice the ice water that is currently coming out of my tap would be to have during summer,

This is why I have multiple power adapters for my MacBook Pro! One lives at my computer desk, the other normally in the living room and that one travels with me. I used to have three, one lived in my backpack. Normally when I travel it's just 100 miles for a day trip, and I'm not using my laptop for actual work as I have a Windows desktop in my office, soit's not a huge deal if I forget it.

You can, in fact, bottle the summer heat and save it for winter. This is why coastal areas have more temperate weather than continental areas... heat is being stored in the water in the summer, when it's cooler than the air, and released in the winter, when it's warmer than the air. Icehouses did the reverse, storing the winter cold somewhere well-insulated so that it can be used to cool things in the summer.
I'm not sure I'd want to be the one volunteered to get a heated Summer into a bottle, though.
