Just two things....

First the fire was reported at over 22 square miles this a.m. - that's a lotta cotton!  We are getting firefighters from all over but the area being burned is extremely difficult terrain; way beyond anything that can be reached by road.  If they get enough aircraft in that might help.  Otherwise, who knows! 

Second, I've heard a lot about people being injured or even dying from the excessive heat.  It's true, many of us don't drink enough water.  We never drive 'off-road' but we carry water in both our vehicles.  When we were in Death Valley last I found this really neat chart in the men's room.

It's not the greatest photo, sorry cellphone alert, but when it's mounted over the urinal; well, it gets your immediate attention.  You don't have that much else to be doing.  This heat is pretty intense; I'm starting to think nicely about fall!  Yeah, I know, I'm fickle. 

Anyway, hope you have a good one.

Hope you are drinking enough - sometimes when you stay home you forget you still have to drink.
