Stayed up most of the night to guard against looters. Caught a nap between 8 am and noontime. Just got back from topping off the gas in my truck. Its touch and go out there right now.
Current Weather conditions:
Hurricane level temperatures of 93-95 degrees. Pets and small children should be kept inside. When temperatures reach Hurricane Levels, dehydration can take place rapidly. Drink plenty of fluids and take breaks if working outside.
Hurricane level UV index of 8. Hurricane level UV Index readings mean very high risk of harm from unprotected sun exposure. Take extra precautions because unprotected skin and eyes will be damaged and can burn quickly. Minimize sun exposure between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. If outdoors, seek shade and wear protective clothing, a wide-brimmed hat, and UV-blocking sunglasses. Generously apply broad spectrum SPF 30+ sunscreen every 2 hours, even on cloudy days, and after swimming or sweating. Watch out for bright surfaces, like sand, water and snow, which reflect UV and increase exposure
Hurricane level of Humidity is 95%. Hurricane level humidity can have an adverse effect on the human body. Because the air feels warmer than the official, recorded temperature, it can contribute to feelings of low energy and lethargy. In addition, hyperthermia, or over-heating as a result of your body’s inability to effectively let out heat, can negatively impact your health in conditions of high humidity. Some health risks which result from overexposure to humidity (hyperthermia) include:
Dehydration Fatigue Muscle cramps Heat exhaustion Fainting Heat stroke
Its going to be a long day.
