I understand it s not funny but this is your/my/everybody's life that is in the balance.
It can be hard to hear but it is our lot today. Read this : https://www.ondafuerteventura.es/gllanzarote-registra-221-casos-activos-de-covid-19/
Yes, it is very difficult to wear a mask in this heat, especially when you have health problems. Therefore I am just about housebound again, which I feel is totally unecessary.
Wearing a facemask is supposed to protect OTHERS from you IF you have Covid19.
For what it's worth, there are NO current cases in the municipal of Antigua
It's the first time a Red Alert has been issued. Today's temperature is expected to be between 40 and 44 degrees. The advice is to drink plenty of water, close all windows and stay inside.
My son says it was 28 degrees at 3am this morning.
NASA captures the calima that covers the Canary Islands sky.
"During its daily passage over the Canary Islands, the Terra satellite cameras have captured the air inlet from the Sahara that has triggered the thermometers on the islands and covered them with a dense layer of suspended dust."
Sunny today. 29 degrees at 2pm 😎

The forecast is for a sunny day with a shade temperature of 26, a UV index of 11 and a 25 kph N wind.
It's been cloudy all morning, so let's hope the sun appears this afternoon. 25 degrees with a moderate wind.
A mix of sun and cloud this afternoon.
