What's the weather like over there?


Recommended Posts

You know this look in the face of your dog when he sees you taking the dog leash?

This happiness, running cycles around you and can't waiting to go out with you?

Sadly there is another: a single half opened eye telling you 'Really? It is 37C, all dried out, no single mud pit to jump in, ... OMG why do I have the most stupid dog owner in the world!' And all this said with a single half opened eye.

 

And my 'human -> dog' dictionary says nothing how to translate: 'Sorry, a stupid Mustang owner drove into a boar and we have to search it because a possible injured boar close to the senior home could be dangerous''

There's a popular song here in Germany which describes it perfectly:

I've had large stomach issues since early yesterday, not very pleasant. My dad thinks I've had a heat stroke and adviced me to stay in low temperature areas (easier said than done). But it has become a little bit better, I can at least sit again now, yesterday I had to stay in bed/bathroom. Also we had a small rain over night which dropped the temperature for a little bit which might've helped, although right now we're back to heat record again.

Heat- or sun stroke? I hope the difference is same in english.

Sun stroke: too much sunlight against the head. But moving to a shadow helps because the rest of the body with its blood is cooler than the head. I wear strawhatseven it looks strange,

Heat stroke: body temperature is way too high. Way more dangerous, body looses liquid because of heavy sweating. You should drink, but vomiting makes attempts to give water to a victim dangerous.

Heat strokes are allways a danger at firefighting, heavy protection gear, heat from fire, at this heat only 10 minutes direct at the fire. Which is a bit complicated at smaller volunteer firefighter teams. In summer we have always a team from a neighbour village as a reserve.

Heat stroke since it happened over night. The day before I went out with the dog and it was waaay too hot outside, but when I came back I was fine, even could eat a pizza without problems. But the next morning the trouble appeared. The two things I can eat now are apples and "Laugenstangen vom Naumann", everything else comes straight out again. Don't know the translation of "Laugengebäck":3lmao:

I'm drinking a lot of water and camomile tea. Also I'm taking a really horribly tasting medicine, but I don't want to take it for too long since it can damage the liver.

A Laugenstange is a pretzel where the baker forgot to form a pretzel and puts the long roll in the oven:theuns:

We do them at firefighters as a snack to take with at calls. Very often we do 'filled' variants when we have enough dough and time. My favourite: Handkäse, onions and dices of smoked pork fatback. I know I am a barbarian :)

For our five days in Barbados we had some of the miserable weather to be seen... cloudy skies, over cast weather, rain...deluges of rain... enough to force our wedding indoors and drown out a few nights at the bar (yee gads :eek: )  however... spaced out through all this were beautiful moments. Great sun, perfect blue sky, and some 85 degree water enough to just get back our faith :lol:

Luckily we had clouds, but no rain, and 20C. Luckily because we visited a show for farm animals and even it is located mid in a forest  - 30+C and burning sun would be too high for farm animals which have to be tied because of savety reasons.

The good digital cameras were with the kids so I was using my old analog Leica M5, just developed the film and scanned.

Dülmener, around 300 of them live more or less free. Last 'wild' horses in Germany.

This photo was by our second with a digital

That was one of the things grandpa did in afterwar times to earn some money. Carving wooden models from farm work for schools to show and teach kids in towns. My younger sister has them and a few are at a school museum in Berlin. These were carved by one of the museum people. Front is farmer sewing and his wife with a harrow to bring the seeds under the soil. The harrow is towed by a cow and and a donkey and shows the difference ways between a horse and a cow to attach them to a harrow or waggon. Our area had Hauberge, type of communal forest and mine management. A small cow was used for milk, pulling farm tools,, ... The donkey for the mine and for farm so the animals were used to work together.

Background is a baking house day;firewood, breads, ....

The negative is 24*36mm. My negative scanner does 3900 dots per inch. So modern digitals have a better resolution than old analogues, given they have good optics. Smartphone with 50 megapixel? The resolution is way too high to be supported by the tiny optics. The advantage of analogue was (is?) that the optics and analogue films were fitting together,

For monochrome, 4 rgb pixels give one monochrome pixel, a 50MP is more or less around a 20MP monochrome. So here an old analogue is still doing fine, specially the 6*6cm or 6*9cm analogues.

Another advantage of the analogues are digital photo laws in Europe: using them is not considered creating a digital database. So you can do a photo without asking. But you have to ask if there are people on it and you scan it to make it public. In this moment it is considered digital. My second uses a double-eyed analogue for snapshots and street photography, just for this reason. You can capture the moment, and if there are people on it you can ask after doing the photo.

Nobody is angry if you shoot wiith one of these, but use a long digital tele when there are kids around, parents can demand that you show the last photos, to them or to police. Even the new tele smartphones can bring you in trouble.  So best for street photos is using an old analogue, which looks like an analogue.

21 degrees here in the morning, perfect weather for early morning run.  This weather climbs easily into the high twenties and one of our air cons has gone down from old age or is clattering a little too much... :lol:  good ole best buy looking for da dealz

38+C in shadows. Wife got 3 emergency calls in less than two hours because of overheating older people in a senior home 5 miles away. Ambulance cars need up to 20 minutes to find a hospital which will take one because of covid patients in needed rooms or nurses got it themself.

Yesterday I did a big warning sign on the private forest road to our house: No Parking!

They can park on a field away from forest. But catalysators are a risk if a car is parked above dry leaves and small branches. I understand that they want their car in the shadow when they walk with their dog. But at this drought they should leave the car at home and do a walk with the dogs, and not - worsed case- park and let the dogs out while still sitting in the car.
