Heat Wave!?!

Do you live in the North East?? Because if you do, you are probably feeling the effects of day 4 of the giant heat wave sweeping across the East Coast. Triple digit heat and record breaking tempertatures are not making life for 50+ Americans very nice lately.

But, just because it's hot out doesn't mean you have to become a hermit! Be sure to monitor your activities and time in the sun to reduce your risk for heat-related illnesses, wear a hat to protect yourself from the sun, and drink plenty of water throughout the day to replace lost fluids. Don't wait until you're thirsty to drink. ;)
