If you've tried to physically fight the heat swamping your home right now, it's probably time to get some extra supplies, snacks and air-conditioning for your soul.

As you venture out, you may see some trees and power lines on the road or traffic lights that don't work. Remember to avoid any debris and treat an intersection without a working light as a four-way stop.
