Well folks, it may only be April, but summer has arrived - at least according to my temperature standards - here in Texas. Yesterday we saw 89 degrees, and today the high is 90. (Last year the kids and I started the tradition of going to Dairy Queen on the first day the temperature hits 90 degrees - looks like we may be making a stop at DQ on our way home from Target this afternoon.) When the mercury climbs to such heights we need to start thinking about protecting ourselves and our children from heat cramps, heat exhaustion, and heat stroke (which can be life-threatening). Pop on over to the Red Cross blog to read more about the signals of and treatments for these three conditions, and stay cool out there!
