Toronto issued an Extreme Heat Alert today – and tomorrow will be even hotter. With the humidex, temps will be well over 100ºF, possibly over 110ºF. There’s no air-conditioning at the cottage. The usual breeze off the lake provides us with reasonable temperatures for sleeping. I’m not sure if that will be the case tonight.
I spent about 90 minutes this evening chatting with a neighbour while standing in the lake. For the next two hours I let the drying clothes cool me. But now the heat is beginning to oppress once again. I’m not complaining. In a couple of months, it will begin to get significantly cooler – and I will long for these hot July/August nights.
Excuse me while I wander back down to the lake.
