July has been a month of horrible heat.
“At least 65 people have died in the blistering heat since early July, but the actual figure is thought to be much higher.
More than 22,000 people have been taken to hospitals with heat-stroke symptoms, Japanese officials said. In the city of Kumagaya, temperatures soared to 106 degrees on Monday, the highest temperature ever reported in the country and nearly 12 degrees hotter than average July temperatures. In Tokyo, the heat reached 104 degrees.”
I have been doing my best to stay inside as much as possible during the last couple of weeks, or only going outside when the sun is down. It’s a little cooler today, but then typhoon Jongdari is on the way.
