Today was hot, miserable is tomorrow when most of us inland valleys will break 100 with room to spare. Ugga.
Red Flag warning has been extended until Wednesday night at 8PM. If you live in an area with parking restrictions on Red Flag Days…pay them heed and respond accordingly.
Pets and little ones need extra water to stay hydrated and cool in this premature blast of late summer weather. I put a big block of ice in the dogs outdoor dish to keep it cool and palatable as well as avoid evaporating faster. For the toddler I keep his water bottle filled with ice in it as well.
It should go without saying don’t leave your pets or children unattended in the heat, but at least one dolt will do it with a tragic ending. It is against the law, but some folks seem to pack their brain away in the glove box. If you see it happen, please do the following.
- check the door…is it unlocked and you can open the door and let cooler air in:?
- note make, model, color and license plate of the offending vehicle
- call 911 and alert them of the problem and location of the car.
- go into nearest store and see if the owner is there
