We're having a heat wave...
A heat wave is gripping the whole eastern half of the country, from Ontario to Nova Scotia (Newfoundland is cool all summer with temperatures from the teens to low 20s), and we're no exception. Temperatures topped out at 32° (90° F) here today; the humidex (a measure of the humidity and how it affects our bodies' perception of the temperature) suggested it felt like 41° (106° F).
I don't mind the heat much; I am the one who'd always rather be too hot than too cold. I luxuriate in heat. However, the sun shines on our second-story bedroom all afternoon and evening, and on hot days it becomes the hottest place in the whole house. That's why we got a very nice little air conditioner that keeps the bedroom cool and lets us sleep in comfort.
Except did I mention the house is being painted? Not only would the AC, which extends quite a ways outside the window, be in their way as they moved their ladders around that part of the house, but the window frames are being painted too. So for now we are just suffering the hot sweaty nights out. (Somehow the phrase "hot sweaty nights" sounds a lot more exciting than the reality we're living lately).
Supposed to be hotter still tomorrow!
Least you don't have to shovel it :)
