For us in the Northwest, who have not been suffering like other parts of the country, higher temperatures and sunshine are a special present.
But over half of this country is still blanketed in unusually high heat and, in some places, drought conditions. Risks from heat are high for both people and animals. Do make sure that you are drinking water all day long, and that you keep moving around.
Do also pay careful attention to leaving ground floor windows or doors unlocked or open. Open doors and windows present burglars with irresistible opportunities.
