I saw that on the Weather Channel this morning!!!!  All I could think was
"oh, my poor Beverly!!!"  

If it makes you feel better, it was 103 here yesterday.   Right now (it's
11:30 AM) it's 86 degrees with 65% humidity.  Yeah.  Pleasant.  not!!  lol

And I have just come out of the sewing room where I've been wrestling with a
swoat made out of 9 wool and 2 blend sweaters.  Whew!!

I had to leave the family picnic early, the (now required by
a new RX) sunblock was melting and streaming into my eyes.
Gah!

Better you than me.  Here it did cool down enough overnight
to make things pleasant again.

One of the reasons I love, love, love my sunblock.  It's dry and goes on
with a brush.

Dry or lotion, if your own sweat is running down your
forehead and into your eyes, it will probably transport some
of the sunblock with it. (Yeah, I SWEAT, no genteel
"perspiring" or "glowing" for this gal.)  :-}

I'll concede that, since you have perspiration flowing down into your
eyes, but my experience is that lotions have a higher "goop" factor.

Re: Ping : Emily and Sharon and anyone else with the constant heat
We're still setting a record for the most number of consecutive days of 100+
degree temperatures.  It began on August 1st and this is the 21st.

I thought surely it was cooler yesterday morning, when I went to the eye
Doctor at 11:15, and mentioned it to DS.  He told me it was because of a
light breeze and I suppose he was right, since there was no breeze when we
left the office and I could feel the heat.

It is forecast to go all the way down to 99 possibly next weekend; but no
rain is expected, except a few scattered showers, hit or miss, throughout
the area.

I do drink a lot of water.  But there is a limit to what you should drink.
One of my friends found out that if you drink too much water, you can
actually flush too much sodium out of you system. Then you wind up with all
manner of motor coordination issues among other things.  And a trip to the
ER.  It's a bit of a balancing act.  

We all (even the kids) know the signs of heat distress.  First is usually a
headache.  Then you will have some dizziness and/or flashing colors/lights
around the edge of your vision especially if you get up quickly.  If you
stop sweating, you're really in trouble. We take care to do outside things
either in the morning before about 10, or of an evening after about 7.  We
have daylight till after 9 usually. So there's plenty of time to do things
outside away from the hottest part of the day.  Too, before we got the rain,
it was so dry here, we not only had bans on outdoor burning, we weren't
supposed to do any mowing or anything like that. It can cause a spark which
is all it takes to start a grass fire. Not that any of the grass was growing
enough to need mowed, but........  ;)
