Heatwave in Japan

Via NHK World:

A heat wave continued in most parts of Japan on Thursday.The temperature reached
39.4 degrees Celsius in Tajimi City, Gifu Prefecture. Tajimi is the first
Japanese city to record temperatures above 39 degrees this year.Weather
officials say the hot spell is likely to continue through the weekend, and are
cautioning people to guard against heatstroke.Five people died and at least 330
were taken to hospital with symptoms of heatstroke across Japan on Thursday. In
Ibaraki Prefecture, a 36-year-old farmer died after working in a hothouse

Just a reminder to Riverside folks that heat is a serious thing. Drink a lot water, and try to stay indoor. Avoid using electricity since that doesn't help and only lead to environmental problems.

"(oh, I remember she attacked Gyeong Hwa Pak at Truth Wins Out, too)
She did?"

No, I didn't actually. And, contrary to what people are saying, I didn't post anything on Jeffrey D's blog either.

I have no idea either what the messages said or who posted them - but whoever it was, it wasn't me.

Good advice in your post. Condolences to those poor people who died in Japan and their bereaved loved ones - that you mention in your post.
