We, in northeastern US with temperatures near 100F (38C), are sweltering although not as badly as the Pacific Northwest. I adjusted my routine to walk at 6:30 a.m. instead of the hotter part of the day. Today, it was close to 80 in the early morning and very humid but it was do-able. The mocha latte afterward still tasted good.
I was surprised that I didn’t see any walkers, joggers or dog walkers. When I lived in the other neighborhood, I would see more people walking at 6 a.m. than any other time. I assumed it was the “before work” walk. If you don’t walk early in this heat, you won’t walk at all. At least you won’t if you are smart.
The cats are sleeping through the heat wave and that’s not a bad idea. We have had some errands to get done and any car time is uncomfortable even with air conditioning so we reverted to tropical life. Working, running errands and anything that requires movement happens early morning and late afternoon. Mid-day until almost suppertime is either siesta or slow motion time. Really slow motion. Almost reverse.
Stay safe in this crazy weather!
