Staying Cool During Extreme Heat in Surrey, BC.

Yesterday's sweltering heatwave had everyone seeking shade and coolness. Our family decided to make the best of it, turning the day into an adventure of finding the coolest spots in the city.

We started the day at home, enjoying a light breakfast in the coolest part of our house. We filled our water bottles, donned our lightest clothing, and packed a bag with snacks and books for the day ahead.

By mid-morning, the sun was already fierce, so we headed to the Surrey Newton Library. The moment we stepped inside, the cool air was a welcome relief. The kids found a cozy reading nook, while I perused the latest novels and enjoyed the respite from the heat. We spent a few hours lost in our books, rehydrating regularly and enjoying the library's serene environment.

As the afternoon heat peaked, we made our way to Crescent Beach. The gentle breeze off the water was refreshing, and the sight of families and friends enjoying the beach lifted our spirits. We found a shaded spot under a large beach umbrella and set up our picnic. The kids played in the sand, building elaborate castles and splashing in the cool waves.

As the sun began its descent, the temperature became more bearable. Our picnic spread included cool fruits, sandwiches, and plenty of water. We watched as the sky transformed into a canvas of orange, pink, and purple. The beach was alive with activity, but it felt peaceful as we sat together, enjoying the natural beauty.

Throughout the day, we remained vigilant for signs of heat-related illnesses. We watched for symptoms like heavy sweating, dizziness, and nausea. Surrey's guidelines emphasized the importance of immediate action if such symptoms appeared, including moving to a cooler place and staying hydrated. Thankfully, we managed to avoid any heat-related issues, but it was a reminder of the importance of awareness and preparedness.

Surrey's efforts to help residents stay cool during extreme heat were evident at every turn. From shaded parks like Bear Creek Park ) to the air-conditioned sanctuaries of community centers and libraries, the city provided numerous options to beat the heat. Take advantage of these resources, stay hydrated, and check on vulnerable neighbors during extreme heat events.
