Thursday, or Thereabouts - July 14, 2016

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?

  2. Cant believe that you are having temperatures touching the 40s out there. Gosh!
