What to do when D.C. weather hits brutal heights

Today, D.C. is one of the hottest cities in the country. We’ve hit 95 degrees here in Washington D.C. Even El Paso, Texas isn’t as–oh wait it’s 98 degrees there never mind. Weather reports and whiney students are saying it feels like its about 100 degrees outside.

But this is no joke. The DCist described the weather out there as “the most oppressive, face-melting day of the year.” The National Weather Advisory issued a hazardous weather outlook heat advisory a few hours ago. District residents be warned: you’re better off in your air conditioned offices even if you think you’d rather be outside.

What to do when it’s scorching:

  • Stay inside.
  • Stay inside.
  • Don’t leave your children inside the car. Or your dogs, of course. Meh about the cats.
  • Definitely use this as an excuse not to mow your lawn. Even if your neighbor has been pestering you about it for the past month.
  • If you’re drinking, Vox recommends the typical summer drinks, like margaritas and a classic twist on a lemonade with a dash of citrus-flavored vodka.
  • Water’s good, too.

Stay cool!
