Here We Go

Just got the following e-mail from Arlington County:

The national weather service has issued an extreme heat warning from 12pm on 8/1 until 6pm on 8/3. Temps around 100 degrees, heat index in the 110-115 degree range. Refer to the Arlington County website for tips to beat the heat. MPH OEM

Sent by Arlington County OEM to Weather Information 24hrs, Weather Information 9AM-9PM (e-mail) through Arlington Alert.

I'm sure some of my plants are going to die now matter how much I water them. But that's hardly the end of the world. What does concern me are the homeless people who don't have anyplace cool to go, who don't have anyplace to shower off, who don't have anyplace to go for a cold drink. This kind of heat, especially coupled with our area's world-famous humidity, can kill people.

Of course the White House is air conditioned and has a gardening staff.

Here in California, over 130 people died from the heat the last 2 weeks or so. Many of them were the elderly, some of whom had air conditioning but did not turn it on because they could not afford to.

The elderly and the poor.

What a country, eh?
