Heat wave and marching band

Today starts Color Guard, Drumline, and Pit camps at our high school. I'm hoping the directors and coaches are wise enough to keep all the groups inside during the heat wave.

My kids are both in sports and the coaches are good on making them drink tons. We are hot (mid 90's) and ver y humid this whole week, so of course this is the week that ds had to go to Boy Scout camp, sigh!

All three of my DSs have combat related issues after deployment, but the one that is an infantry gunner has struggled the worst by far.

I would find out what your school district's policy on heat is and make sure they are following it.

Today ended up being cooler than predicted, but seriously humid from some brief rain that rolled through.

Yes, DH first was supposed to be stationed in either Ft. Riley, KS or El Paso, I told him go ahead, I'd join him once he was stationed elsewhere. LOL! Then they decided on Ft. Hood for him also, which is where he finished out his service. Good luck to your DS, DH did one deployment, he would do another in a heartbeat, but we decided it was best to go inactive when his contract was up. I've seen some of your posts about your DS's issues after deployment, I hate to admit we've went through a lot of the same issues with my DH after his deployment, in fact we're still working through them...

Yes, DH said that its better to wear the loose, long sleeved clothing over there, and wool socks, because they wick the sweat away from the body easier than stifling it up against the skin and sweating is the body's natural cooling process. DH was a combat medic over there, and drinking room temperature water as opposed to cold water is actually better, that's a trick for anyone out there, because the body absorbs the room temperature water better than cold water which takes time for the body to warm back up again inside.

LOL I clearly remember sitting in the bleachers in the SHADE at Ft. Sill for Z's graduation and thinking that weather was not fit for man nor beast!
