Hot, hot hot! Temps have definitely been in the high range lately and staying cool can be quite the challenge when resources aren't readily available.

I have a friend that is an AC installer/repair man in Billings. He called me the other day after he wrapped up work. He was out of breathe and I asked him if he was ok. He said he was just walking through the door of his house and he was soaked from being on roof tops all day.

I asked him if he was staying hydrated and he said that he takes a big cooler of water with him everyday.

I worry because I have had heat stroke before and it is not fun at all to deal with.

Water, shade when available, sun screen and rest are all so very important during the hot weather months.

I have a feeling that it is only going to get hotter before it's over this year so please watch yourself and be careful.
