Never Too Hot to Blog
May 26, 2010 § 4 Comments
It’s currently 30 degrees C with a humidex of 40 (which means it feels like 104 F outside)!
It’s too hot to go outside, even to jump in the pool, until much later this afternoon. And inside, it’s too hot to cook or clean or knit or organize photos or even play with puppets.
But apparently it’s not too hot to blog, still all I can think of to blog about is how freakin’ hot it is.
And lo, if it were only a dry heat…that I could live with. It’s the stifling, oppressive, heavy, sweat inducing, rotten mood inviting and disgustingly sticky air humidity that makes it unbearable.
It’s not that I haven’t grown accustomed to the diverse climate of my Eastern Ontario, specifically the Ottawa Valley, environment. I was born and raised in the land of “all weather at any time” and other than a brief stint on the west coast in Victoria, B.C., I’ve lived here my entire life.
I honestly believe I’d go mad living more than a year in a stable climate. As much as I gotta have my summer warm with sunshine, I also need my snow and ice in winter. I dunno, I suppose it’s a good deal of what I define as Canadian.
Anyway, what I could so live without is the extremes. Like a pendulum with some serious momentum, the temperatures here can, and often do, fluctuate rapidly.
Only two weeks ago I was covering up my new vegetable sprouts because it dropped down to -2 overnight and we had frost. Today, we have Environment Canada warnings saying that due to the current heat wave we shouldn’t go outside between the hours of 11:00 am and 2:00 pm.
Pick a season, any season, I don’t care…just MAKE UP YOUR FREAKIN’ MIND!!!!!!
Okay, phew, I think I’m done now.
Carry on. 😀
