RISING HEAT CONTINUES IN CT & NY

The HEAT continues to rise in Connecticut and New York.  Once again, many schools through out have early dismissal. 

In New Fairfield, CT, we received an “Alert Now” message saying that the Senior Rec Center would be open all day for anyone needing shelter from this severe heat and humidity – and that CANDLEWOOD LAKE would be open – a GREAT place to cool off!

                                                                     

CANDLEWOOD LAKE is a man made lake with over 60 miles of shoreline.  In 1928, Connecticut Light & Power began the process of making Connecticut’s largest lake with water from the HOUSATONIC RIVER.

In the 1940’s, summer cottages were being built around the 4 towns and city that surround the lake –  BETHEL,   BROOKFIELD,   NEW FAIRFIELD,   NEW MILFORD   AND   SHERMAN – along with the  CITY OF DANBURY. 

Now, most of the homes on and near the lake, are used all year round.  They also have Lake Associations with clubhouses, beaches and private docks.

Candlewood Lake has been a favorite for residents and visitors to boat, fish, water-ski and jet-ski – or to just sit back, relax and enjoy the view!

                                                                                                                           

WON’T YOU BE MY NEIGHBOR?

SIZZLING HEAT in NY & CT

New York and Connecticut are under a heat advisory  and as the day goes on, temperatures are climbing into dangerous territories.  Many schools are having early dismissal or no school at all due to power outages.

                                         

PLEASE remember WATER, WATER, WATER!!  Drink lots of it – pour it over you – or take a dip in the pool,ocean, lake or jump in the shower!

                                                                                

 

If possible, stay indoors – please leave the yard work for another day! Dehydration and heat exhaustion can hit you quickly and can be very dangerous!

If you need to go out, wear light colored clothing that is loose – and don’t forget a hat and sunscreen AND a water bottle.  

My heart goes out to those who have no power and those who must be out doors due to work – like my husband who’s melting in Manhattan!
