It’s hot here. Reallllly hot.
When people from other parts of the world talk about cold, snowy Canadian winters, they tend to picture us all huddled up here in our igloos, wearing mittens and tuques, and making snowmen year-round.
Not so, my friends. Not so.
On days like this, the song stuck in my head is Martha and the Vandellas’ “Heatwave”.
It gets pretty hot here in the summer – at least in our neck of the woods. And today, there’s a possibility we could break records.
34 degrees Celsius, and with the humidex it should feel more like 45. On the radio this morning, they said that’s like 119 degrees Fahrenheit. I think we’d have to hit 37 to break the record, and reports are that’s quite possible.
It wasn’t this hot in Cuba. Not even close.
And you know what? You won’t catch me complaining. I love it!
…Well…unless I have to be in my Rav for any length of time. The AC didn’t work in it when I bought it, and I never bothered getting it fixed. Most of the time I don’t care…until days like today. Fortunately, I only have a five-minute drive to work. If I was sitting in city traffic, I would definitely be getting it fixed!
I also have to watch it when I squeal about how much I love the heat around this office. I’m one of the lucky ones, who gets to sit inside at a desk, staying completely cool in the air conditioned office. I literally cringe when some of the guys walk in here on days like this, dripping with sweat, their shirts soaked through, grumbling about how they wish they had a job in the office.
Moments like that? It’s very important not to say anything about lovin’ the heat…
The only thing that would make this heatwave better? A POOL.
God, how I wish I had a pool! It’s been a wish of mine since I was a little girl. I loved/love swimming, and I used to beg my parents for a pool as a kid. There was always an excuse, a reason not to get one. If I could afford one now, it would be at the top of my wishlist.
Unfortunately, word on the street is pools are a lot of work. I would also need a pool boy to look after it.
Hmmm…that’s really not such a bad idea at all…
How’s the weather where you are? Hot? Really hot? Do you enjoy the heat? And how are you keeping cool?
It’s like a heatwave!!! burning in my heart!!!
