It’s certainly a nice time for my son and me to be outside of Japan, which is sweltering with summer heat right now. Yesterday J-List’s home city of Isesaki was the second hottest place in the country, at 37 degrees C/98.6 degrees F, with 100% humidity of course. The one good thing about being in Japan is, at least homes and businesses are equipped with strong air conditioning that can keep things livable when it’s super hot out. Unless the terrible electrical storms in summer cause lightning to strike the J-List building, knocking the power out and frying our air conditioner, which has happened several times in the past (including yesterday, though the air conditioner wasn’t damaged this time). At least summer has traditional Japanese festivals and fireworks to take your mind off the heat.
It’s very hot in Japan right now.
