Today is the first day of a week-long heat wave! Since we are currently in the middle of a serious drought, the upcoming dry heat will definitely be fatal to a lot of living things. For weeks, grass has dried up and gone dormant. Certain plants will not survive this summer. Heck, there were already a few drownings in the past weekend when we were still below the 30s. These poor souls wanted to cool off by jumping into a body of water. Unfortunately, there are some of us who are oblivious to the dangers of thermal shock.
