It’s hot outside.

I went for a run at about 8:30 this morning, and I’m still sweating. However – if you ask me – I’d still take these temperatures over the rain we’ve been getting lately.

But there’s still plenty of reasons to be cautious when you head outside this week. Cramps, heat stroke and heat exhuastion can come on without notice.

Here’s a few tips to keep in mind from the N.H. Red Cross.

It’s the same tune for the weather in a different month after the Granite State’s bout with the heat at the end of June, but there still are a few ways to try and take advantage of it . . . or avoid it.

Because I know it has to be a super popular choice for kids, there’s always summer school (complete with air conditioning).

Ski resorts are planning to get a bunch of work done, while the weather permits.

Worried about your garden? Here’s some things to store in the old noggin while you’re out there.

Then there’s the oldest trick in the book. Hit the pools! Our friends at the Concord Parks and Recreation Department are keeping several pools open until 8 p.m. through tomorrow.

But in case you thought we didn’t have a theme set for the summer, get ready for the rain.

Try not to melt in the meantime.
