We have just checked the temperature inside the car.
Our alarm clock which has the temperature on it could not cope and that goes up to a maximum of 88º C which is a whopping 190.4 F.
OK, the windows were shut (they’re not now) but imagine if you had left a dog or a child in the car whilst you nipped into a shop?????????
I also read that hand sanitizers can explode in the heat. Hubby has looked it up and the flash point is 25º C (77º F).
The house temperature is 31º C (87.8º F)
We are not going anywhere today.
Keep your pets and kids safe.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes!
In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too.
On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts.
From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives.
We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
I am in the shade, every so often Ruby sneaks past to try and sin bath! O have to keep calling her back into the shade ! 💜💜
Barney used to toast himself against the garage door in the bungalow. When he got too hot, he rolled over and did the other side!
Stupid dogs!! Got to love them 💜💜💜
He was always outside when we went out, he had a kennel, food and fresh water and was content to sit and watch the world go by at the gate. But when we were home, he was inside with us. We weren’t ready to lose him, especially the way it happened, and I lasted 6 days before we got Maggie. So hard to believe that’s over 15 years ago now,
They are part of the family, we never forget them 💜
No, we don’t. ❤
I found it interesting that children who died from a hot car have gone down during pandemic.
I’m not surprised. I’ve been sitting in a car on a hot day with all the windows open and my door and been uncomfortable in about five minutes.
One time I checked our car and the temperature was so hot it instantly wilt the plants
So very true. Here in Bangalore, it’s cold. We’ve been having a couple of rainy days coupled with the occassional icy blasts of wind
It’s blisteringly hot here, even though we have a breeze.
We have a high today of 82F (27.7C) but the weekend is supposed to get to 99F (37.2C). No matter how many times people are told there is always someone who doesn’t believe and thus a child or pet dies. There aren’t enough years in prison to atone for that.
I’m with you on that!
Very interesting article. I leave here an article I wrote in a similar subject. Summer has arrived!! But hot weather can bring serious problems for your pets and even kill them. Learn how to protect them in the hot months.
thank you for your comment and link to your article from last year.
