How HOT is hot?
Hi there. How are you doing? Are you feeling the heat?
I am one sweaty mess. This heat is getting to me.
I start my mornings early. Today I was up at 5 am to get ready for work. At 6am this morning it was 85 degrees. It’s HOT! I guess, I should feel lucky…at least here in Arizona, it’s a dry heat.
The bad news
In the past 2 days, 4 people have died due to heat-related issues. I feel so bad for these poor people. When it’s this hot, it’s not a good idea to go hiking or even walking.
Have a plan
If you have to be out in the heat, it’s a good idea to carry 2 gallons of water in the car. You never know when a fan belt will break or something will go wrong. I have wound up on the side of the road a couple times.
Drink a lot of water. You need water before you become thirsty. You need 1/2 your body weight in ounces. So if you weigh 140 pounds, 70 ounces is a good goal.
Play it safe
If you are living in Arizona, please play it safe and stay inside when possible.
Hope you all have a great day. Enjoy living life in your own groove.
