Fatigue, a heatwave, a fan, a thought for those experiencing even higher temperatures

I wasn't actually exhausted when I wrote yesterday about words for "exhausted" in English. I'd just noticed how many such words I've learned in Spanish, which made me ponder the English words. But later yesterday afternoon, the heat really got to me, so I didn't go to the free music festival in downtown Basel last night (Em Bebby si Jazz). And the only reason I went out today into the heatwave was to buy another fan for the apartment, as we were one short. But though 35 Celsius is high for Basel, it would surely seem like a cold snap for many of the other regions currently experiencing record high temperatures.
