Here in the north country the weather is really starting to heat up. For May we have had record setting temperatures.

Its been hazy, hot & humid.

Which is also weird considering we had snow on Mother's Day.

Typical north country weather.

Anyways, I'm sure in the rest of the country the weather is starting to heat up as well.

Do yourselves a favor when you go out in it. Wear tons of sunscreen. Make sure everyone in the family has sunscreen on. Hats are also a plus. Yes, even if you have hair on your head, you head can still get sunburned. Plus, if there is a big enough brim, it'll keep your face shaded.

Also, drink plenty of water. Nothing more refreshing than a glass of ice-water on a hot day.

When you are done with your day, or even if you do this before you begin:

Please, check on your neighbors. Especially if you have elderly neighbors or know that your neighbors haven't been feeling well. Make sure if they have an a/c unit that it is in and working properly (only takes a few minutes to put one in for someone). If they have fans, make sure they are out for them and on and running.

Just stopping in and saying hi is always a good thing.

Enjoy your day.

Great tips. Although it snowed here in Utah 3 days ago. I was so ticked!

It has been a sauna here in MN too. I always check on my elderly neighbors... ;-)
