Great news, I hope the affected local people can set up temporary businesses to feed them.

It takes a village every time the central govt fails to meet the challenge. The relationship between the feudal lords and the people hasn't changed in centuries.

Saw on the news that it was so hot today, volunteers were being asked to take a rest break every fifteen minutes. It was much cooler where I am but even so was drenched in sweat even when just sitting doing nothing. Great respect for people who volunteer under such conditions. They are definitely needed and, I’m sure appreciated.

I’ve often wondered what those volunteers do for a living and how they manage to take days off to do volunteer work when most people are working hard 9 to 5, five days a week.
