The Scorching Heat of the Sun

I saw hubby peeking at the back door glass earlier this afternoon as if he was looking into something or perhaps observing on one thing. And then he later told me that he was actually checking on the lemongrass that he transferred yesterday afternoon at the far side corner with more view of the sun. But when I look at the lemongrass that he moved, it’s like it was snapped of its gut because it looks dry on the outside and the long leaves were bent, although not all, and the colors isn’t green or yellow. It was like it was torched.

And speaking of which, our neighbor later in the afternoon posted on his FB the temperature of the day that he got in his car’s dashboard and you won’t believe what I saw. Its 48 degrees and the time that he quoted with it, is 12:30 in the afternoon. It may not be an accurate reading but I’m pretty sure it is just near with it or could be dead spot on because I really felt that it is so hot outside. And that could be the reason why the plants and veggies that we have, including the newly plated lemongrass wilted that fast. It could not be that it wasn’t watered because the soil is wet when I touched it. So it has to be from the scorching heat of the sun.

It’s hard to Breathe

I have read hubby’s blog yesterday and he was talking about the dangers if you are not going to hydrate yourself properly and appropriately during summer time. And I would say that the heat is really unbearable in the past week, so it is indeed really dangerous if you are not drinking the right amount of water to replace what you have lost in your sweat. But then I think he also has a point when it comes to humidity and that it is comparatively dangerous as well.

I think it has been a week or so now that it is not just hot but it is quite humid as well and you are going to sweat a lot even while standing outside. How much more if you gonna combine it with the scorching heat of summer. I’m pretty sure you will drop dead in less than an hour if you’re not going to take care of your body. And hubby is so true also when he said that it reduces your ability to breathe. It’s like you’re out of breath and that it’s hard to breathe as well. It’s like something pressing on your chest that it prevents you from breathing normally.
