June 1st… the station is getting sticky.   August without air conditioning due to the power savings is going to be interesting.   Japan implemented ‘cool biz’ as a way to save power there is a lot in the press right now figuring out how to deal with the office temperatures this summer.   Japan needs to reduce power consumption 15% to avoid black outs due to the crippled nuclear reactors.    Part of the plan is keep offices at 28 degrees celsius (82 degrees fahrenheit).
