HOT & HUMID - LET'S HELP OTHERS

Two days ago I wrote about all the rain we've had, and how badly I need sunshine, and that I wouldn't complain about the heat & humidity.......well.....We have a "Heat Advisory" today! The following is from http://www.weather.com/

"THE HOTTEST WEATHER SO FAR THIS SUMMER IS EXPECTED TODAY ACROSS EAST CENTRAL MISSOURI AND SOUTHWEST ILLINOIS. HIGHS IN THE MID TO UPPER 90S COMBINED WITH VERY HUMID AIR WILL PRODUCE AFTERNOON HEAT INDEX VALUES AROUND 105 DEGREES."

I realize these temperatures and humidity levels may be normal for some people, or unthinkable for others, but here in my part of the world it's pretty normal to experience, at least a few days every summer.

I will do my best not to complain.....which should be pretty easy since most of the time I'm so very fortunate to be surrounded by air conditioning. Anyone interested in helping people withstand the heat, by donating dollars and/or air conditioners, a couple of suggested sites are below.

If you don't live near the St. Louis area, please check out agencies in your part of the world.
