Heat wave

Fountain in the Püspökladány city center
August is blazing hot here, with heat exhaustion warnings out on the local news; TV stations are showing video of kids playing in city-center fountains around the area.  Normally the police would chase them out of the water, but when the temperature reaches certain levels the rules are relaxed!

Ice cream venders are staying busy
Most people don't have air-conditioning, and many don't even have electric fans, so a lot of people are truly suffering.  Pray for relief, especially for the elderly, the very young, and those with medical conditions. Also pray that tempers will not flare and aggravate family problems and abuse, which are unfortunately common even in cooler weather.

On a more pleasant note, ice cream sales are doing fine!

Its not only August, the heat wave has lasted into September with temps in the mid 30s again today, the 1st Sep. Last night the temp in my flat did not drop below 30C and this is true throughout central Europe.

True! It is hot again. If the forecast is correct we should be having cooler weather later this week, and we will be very thankful. :-)
