Hot Stuff

The LAFD blog reminds us this morning that we’re expecting/experiencing a heat wave. So take it easy, take a few deep breaths, have an extra glass of water.

If you have elderly/disabled neighbors you might want to make sure they they’re taking it okay, too. Coolest thing about the LAFD post? A directory of free places you can go to cool off during the day. (PDF) I find air conditioning the best perk about working in an office. But if you’re a freelancer you may want to take in an afternoon movie, go to the library or otherwise cool coffee house.

Please don’t leave your pooches, kids or other valuables in your car either, all of the above are likely to melt.
