The desperate search for Summer heatwaves


In the Deep South, we have had heat waves.  This year, there aren't so many, and it becomes difficult to find them.

This map lets the influencers find heat waves.  The Deep South one is barely there.  In fact, heat waves are rarer than hen's teeth.  Nevertheless, there are warm spots in the summer.  They have now limited themselves to just '5 times more likely' as opposed to a previous '600 times'.  They try to run from the fact that such a declaration means there are 5 times more heat waves, but this isn't the case.

If you find that you are in a one-day heatwave, please give The Guard a call.  That's the decent thing to do.
