So, our cooling trend has been basically morning overcast that disappears about noon, giving way to clear skies.
This morning, we started with partly sunny skies. The doors are standing open. It it presently cooler outdoors than in. This will not last, but it will not be oppressive heat, either. More of a typical summer day in these parts.
Bright and almost sunny this lunchtime, so much so I ventured out in my shorts and T shirt. Coming back, I had to shelter in the Ring O' Bells because it was raining. In fact I was stuck there in the pub for nearly two hours because it was raining so hard. Such is life
It's been a bit on the cool side here for the last week or so --mostly in the low 20's. It's quite pleasant, but I miss the heat. I'll be leaving for Rimouski in a week or so, as soon as my daughter gives birth, and it's almost always even cooler there. Sigh. By the time I get back it will be almost September and I'm not nearly done with the summer yet!
We're in the midst of another 'heat wave'. Today's temperature is forecast at topping out at 99 F.
That's fairly typical for this time of year. The thing is, the weather since the last heat wave, the heat dome which scorched us all in late June, has been dry. This heat wave will just dry what remains even faster. We need rain. Lots of rain. None of that is in the forecasts....even two weeks out, when temperature settle back down in to the lower eighties for daily highs.
Buy a cooling pad for dogs. It's great for sleeping on in hot weather. I used them for both girls too when it hit 35 degrees here back then. It works on body heat, so it won't get too cold, but still takes the edge of so you can sleep.
