Here I am again:)

We have been having a heat wave for more than a week now with temps anywhere from 111 to 120(at my house) 117 officially.   Each year it seems to get worse with me trying to find a way to cool us down, me and my cats.  This year it has been an answer-less process with my 13 year old spending his time in the bathtub but still suffering and me wetting them down periodically during the day.  I did get a new cooler but when it is this hot it just blows warm air.  So we live in a 90 degree house and in wet circumstances when we sleep.
Today I went outside for the first time in a while to turn the water on for the birds and feed them, came back in bent over and my nose started flowing everywhere......with blood.  Was it the heat?  We have had two deaths so far.  Very sad, both elderly.  One was an elderly lady who had a repairman there to fix her air but needed a part and promised to return the next day.  Many offered her a place to stay or to get her to a hotel but she said no.  The next day the repairman returned with the part only to find her dead.   The other an elderly man in a trailer.  Trailers are ovens here, if there is no cooling prepare to die.
Seems somehow unreal, kind of like a child that starves to death here in the USA.  Just shouldn't happen.   But.....they promise a cool down next week?
Hope our weathermen are right this time:)
Peace and comfort to all!!:)
