The west central part of Indiana is locked in a drought and period of abnormal hot weather. Please be careful if you have to be outside, rest, drink lots of water and use extra caution. When the humidity is very low like it now, you have to drink extra fluids. You cannot wait until you are thirsty to start drinking, drink early and drink often. Take time to check on your neighbors, especially those that are older. Keep plenty of water and shade for your animals. We cannot do anything about the weather, but we can make sure we all get though it by helping our fellow man and animal.
