Water is your best friend during these dangerously hot days.  Drink a big glass of water first thing in the morning, then keep drinking water throughout the day.  If you have to work outside and are not used to the heat or are a bit out of shape or have an underlying illness... think twice before going out there.  This type of heat with heat indexes between 105-110 can bring on heat exhaustion or heat stroke in a hurry.  Children and elderly are most susceptible to the heat so check on them, each other, double check the back seat (for the kids and pets) and hang in there.
