My ice cream is melting...
Road tar is melting.
Electricity usage is skyrocketing.
Train rails are in danger of buckling.
Temperature records are breaking.
And I'm working up to a feverish discussion of these malevolent "3H's" - Hazy, Hot, and Humid.
I told you so! It told you this day would come, five months ago.
With a little reverse engineering here's how some of that post from February might read today:
Yet another sinister stifling mass of tropical air has propelled heat indices (temperature + humidity) into the 40's C.
Remember this sweltering heat when the weather patterns reverse engines and exhale ice crystals.
And just in case you've forgotten what that looks like, here are a few gentle reminders.
Think of this as a breath of fresh air;
nostril-sticking, breath-catching, snow-squeaking, hot water vapourizing, fresh air!
Doesn't that feel better?
