Ohio, like much of the rest of the nation, is experiencing record setting, swealtering weather this summer. Already, 25 days in July have registered above average temperatures. Eight days hit 90 degrees or more. Why is that? How much more can we expect? How to find comfort...other than knowing it's even hotter some places? Wednesday on the Sound of Ideas, Mike McIntyre talks about that with a meterologist; plus, an emergency room physician explains how to recognize dehydration, heat stroke and other heat related maladies while public health officials give tips on special threats ...and help for the elderly.

I have two working window air conditioners in my attic that I don’t need since getting central AC last summer. I want to donate these to someone in need. Do you know of any drop-off areas or any way I can get them to someone who needs them?
Let’s not forget our four-legged and winged friends. Please make sure outside dogs have shade and water. Fill your bird baths, and throw a shallow pan of water out for feral and wild animals.
