Stay safe and be sure to drink lots of water during these hot days this week. If you are in the Greater Seattle area, be alert to signs of heat exhaustion and try to find ways to stay cool. If you do not have access to air conditioning, or are uncomfortable at home, there are free cooling centers throughout King County where you can rest.
