The inevitable happened today. We had power outages. Unfortunately for me that meant I couldn’t do any work at home and my air conditioning stopped. I went back into the office for the afternoon to get out of the heat. I’m really glad that I went to Mum and Dads’ last night to make sure they had plenty of water and talked to them about what they could do to stay cool.
Mum wasn’t working today so took herself off to a movie in the heat of the day. She had a lovely day to herself – said it felt like she was ‘wagging’ school.
The city are considering building cooling centres for the more vulnerable people to go to during the day. If this heat continues for much longer they are definitely going to need to.
