“Feels Like 109”

I had only been checking the upcoming weather for rain, thinking about my grass… but this evening I got an alert on my phone, advising about the extreme heat warning that will be in effect until Saturday evening for basically all of Ohio. 😳 I’m pretty sure I haven’t mentioned this, but I’ve already had two “spells” where I was outside for a relatively short time (but in the heat) where I got lightheaded and woozy enough that I knew it was time to get my ass back inside. 😬🤢

So it was strange when I saw that alert. Something where (up until recently) normally I’d just grumble to myself and move on, but when I read that the heat index could reach 109 degrees it actually made me anxious enough that I momentarily got butterflies in my stomach. 😕 Heh… I know that sounds stupid, but heat regulation is an issue for me right now, and seeing that number… I mean, holy shit. 😯😥 NBC4’s weather people are already talking about the “cool down” next week… but they’re still talking about low-to-mid 80s. 🙄😒 It feels like this miserable weather is never gonna end.

Thank God that me and most folks I know have AC, but there are folks that I know who only have fans… and it does cause me to have concern for them. Places are giving away fans, the power companies talking about preparing for extra load on the system, various buildings will be operating as “cool centers” for people… 😟 so I suppose all of the “scary” talk, combined with how I feel, is probably making me worry for those other folks more than I maybe need to. 🤷🏻‍♂️😕 But yeah, next couple of days are gonna be rough.

Everybody, please try to keep as cool as you can… stay safe…
