This Blog is just a reminder that summer is still here and it’s apparently pissed off at society. It’s been an extreme heat wave here in Michigan and across the country in recent weeks and it does show any signs of easing up going away. Temperatures have been in the mid to high 90’s and in the low 100’s pretty much everyday, with heat reaching well over 100 for the past weeks now. Even though it’s a nice change from the zero below temps and massive rainfall that Michigan is none for, temps this high can be deadly to a lot of people such as; the elderly, the sick, infants and small children, and even our pets. Be sure that you stay in cool insulated areas as much as possible, and always keep in mind that not everyone can take the heat safely. If you have any elderly or sick neighbors, or if you have any children be sure that they stay cool and hydrated during these blazing days of summer. Keep your pets indoors in cool places, and make sure they have lots of cool water available. Keep an eye on children and make sure they put on sun screen and don’t get to much exposure to the sun. Have fun, Be safe, and Enjoy the weather.
