We are experiencing a heatwave here in BC. I'm trying to embrace the heat - I'm a summer person! I hate the cold! - but it's getting a bit ridiculous. Last night Shawn and I put a block of ice in front of the fan to make a DIY air-conditioner and in 40 minutes the ice had melted. Melted! In 40 minutes! It is hot.
For the last three days we have gorged ourselves on watermelon and frozen blueberries because it's too hot to cook. The puppies have been too hot to be mischievous; they just lie on the cool tile of the kitchen floor and pant. Sleeping has become difficult; we toss and turn and wake each other up to complain about the heat. I have looked forward to going to work to revel in the artificially frosty air. You know times are drastic when I say that I'm looking forward to going to work.
I went grocery shopping yesterday to spend some time in the freezer section. An announcement was made over the PA, reprimanding the asshat (the store employee didn't actually use the word asshat but it was implied) who left a puppy in a car in the parking lot. When I left, my car read 38 degrees Celsius (just over 100 degrees Fahrenheit.) I hope that poor puppy was rescued. I have many things to say about people who leave animals in hot cars but I don't have the energy to rant. We'll just file this under stabity stab stab and leave it at that.
The heat is going to last all week. Hold me (but actually don't hold me; it's too hot for contact.)
I want someone to remind me of this post in November when I'm complaining about the rain.
