Stay Cool in This Heat

We are having more very hot days as the Northeast/Mid-Atlantic heatwave continues, so I am just reminding folks to check on shut-in friends, relatives, and seniors, and to make sure that your pets are kept cooled down with plenty of water. 

I just returned from Houston, where it was VERY hot, but where there are cooling centers and plenty of places for folks to cool down. This photo (a public art installation) gives a sense of the heat, but it really is no joke. 

All best,



  1. People need to think of food safety in heat waves as well. Check your refrigerator to see whether it is at zero in the freezer and 40 degrees in the main part. If it is too warm, your food could be spoiling. Also be careful with takeout to avoid getting sick.
