It's the same spiel, year after year. I think the only ones they are educating are martians from another planet because we all know this stuff.
1 Drink plenty of water and stay in cool areas.
2 Open doors early in the morning to cool the house down
3 Shut blinds and curtain
4 Wear lightweight clothes
5 Don't exercise heavily
6 Demonstrating the usual frying of egg on pavement to prove how hot it is
1 When shoveling snow, lift with your legs, not your back
2 Wear layers
3 Demonstrating the usual freezing a wet t-shirt to prove how cold it is
4 Demonstrating how fast skin freezes
5 Explaining wind chill factor
So since we are all so stupid I think this weekend when it will still be 100 degrees out, I will put on some sweats and go out for a jog (even though I've never jogged in my life) about 2:00 pm. No need to drink any water either because that will just make me pee. But before I leave I'll turn the oven on and put a turkey in to roast and turn the a/c off to conserve energy.
And this coming winter I will probably shovel the snow in my jammies and socks and lift straight from the back. Then I will take off my jammies and make lovely fluffy snow angels.
As mammals we are instinctive and will do what it takes to be safe and comfortable (except teen-agers because their brains aren't fully functioning). Even my dog is smart enough to find shade and drink out of the bird bath when it's hot. So I don't need any local or national media people giving me any more tips on what to do in extreme weather. I got it, Duh.....
