  1. Just saw a child on 14th street mowing the grass. Please keep your children inside instead of playing outside or doing yard work. Too hot is too dangerous.

  2. Concerned Immam, Chill out. Mow the lawn, ride the bike. Its fine. Take breaks and drink water- and worry about your own kids.

    I left a half bottle of water in my car overnight- well this afternoon, the water was too hot to wash my hands with!

  3. To anonymous forgive me for being concerned about other people’s children. Apparently,heat stroke can only happen to my kids chas v’shalom. BTW -I know I am over protective but when something happens to my kids, it’s not because I was irresponsible.

  4. Thank you for the reminder, Concerned Imma. As a mom and an EMT, I wholeheartedly agree with you. Safety first, the lawn can wait.

  5. i just wanted to express my thanks to the people that assisted myself and my co-workers at the intersection of sunset and liberty ave’s today. in the middle of the heat wave we had to repair a damaged storm drain and in all the heat one gentleman gave us ice pops and another filled our water jug with a gallon of water. thank you both for your kind gesture. “you did more for us than someone else did for us today.”

  6. To anonymous (#8) – There is something called Ahavas Yisroel and that mitzvah includes being concerned about others kids (yours excluded, of course).
