Default Dangerous Heat Indexes this week!!!

Send extra love this week, the heat indexes are going up to 115 degrees in some of the more southern areas. And lets all meditate and try our best to have extra patience, some crabbiness is expected.

Lots of prayers for all of our men that are having to deal with this type of heat. Im going to visit mine tomorrow before I have to fly out of town for work so at least he will get a little relief from the heat.

I got a gtl message from my girl there and she said they have a new director that is locking down like crazy to try and calm down the fighting. Theres still 2 broken phones there. Theres also broken phones at pettyville and the guy on the phone next to my husband got knocked out and attacked Saturday while we were talking. Between the broken phones and the heat, youd think they could see how simple it would be to HELP control fights by turning on the ventilation fans and fixing a phone.

Shine told me that had some new higher up there now. You're right working phones and ventilation fans would help cut down on fights. But they'd rather just lock them all down instead. I've noticed the crazy frequency of lockdowns lately. I just hope there isn't a lockdown sunday, I only get to see her really on weekends because of work.

I’m worried about a lot of lockdowns happening too in this deadly heat, people can get a little out of sorts. My loved one and I were just discussing that the other night, we hope lockdown doesn’t happen but we’re preparing ourselves emotionally just in case. I hope everyone’s loved ones stay cool in this awful weather. And that the phones that people mentioned are broken get fixed soon.

Ill keep my fingers crossed for you. Summertime... the heat makes anyone irritable. Staff, inmates... everyone. Its ungodly hot this week and climbing.
