It is a very hot summer almost everywhere.
Just a few months ago, it was freezing in Florida, U.S.A.!
Now Japan, Serbia, Germany, Italy, U.S.A.,Hungary, Russia and Poland are being hit by very hot weather and heat wave.
And people get into the rivers, fountains, beaches, sprinkles and others places where there are water to cool off 🙂
A killer whale killed a trainer at SeaWorld Shamu Stadium on Wednesday afternoon.
SeaWorld Shamu Stadium is in Orlando, Florida.
A witness said that a whale named Tilikum jumped up and grabbed the trainer into its tank.
Killer whale is a type of dolphin.
Tilikum is a huge male killer whale.
It weighs 11,ooo pounds and is 22 foot long.
People from the Ethical Treatment Of Animals said killer whales are smart and oceangoing mammals.
They want people to stop keeping the killer whale in tanks and made them perform silly tricks over and over again.
I agree with them because the killer whales may get angry and kill other people.
Anyway I like to watch animals shows too.
I think the killer whale did not eat its trainer.
It must be a sad day at SeaWorld and the trainer’s family must be very sad.
Dawn Brancheau was a very good trainer.
It is freezing in Florida.
Usually winter in Florida is not very cold.
There are a lot of strawberries and oranges grown in Florida.
The cold temperature can destroy the oranges and strawberries.
Farmers have to spray water on the plants to save them from the cold temperature.
The water froze on the plants and protect them.
The frozen water is called icicle.
Icicle on plants are very beautiful.
