It's so hot the hens are layin' hard-boiled eggs...

Yeah, I know...everyone has been saying that lately. But for REALS peeps...it's STINKIN' hot. How hot IS it you ask?

It's SO hot:

  • My central air conditioning has been running for 48 hours + straight, with the thermostat in the house set at 20 degrees celcius, but when I checked the temperature a moment ago, the actual temperature is 26 degrees celcius....feels like 45 degrees celcius
  • An "extreme heat warning" has been issued for the Greater Toronto Area
  • I have considered sleeping on an air mattress in my unfinished basement...several times
  • I actually had beads of sweat on the small of my back today. Note: I.DO.NOT.SWEAT.
  • I ran through the sprinkler with the kids...the first time I have run through the sprinkler in probably 20 years
  • I couldn't ride my beloved Myles tonight
  • Local soccer games have been cancelled

Yes folks....it's gross out there. Far be it for ME to complain, (ahem...cough, cough) because I *NEVER* (ahem) complain, like EVER (snort) but I am complaining here. I hate winter very, very much, but this heat is ridiculous. Unless you have a pool or a lake or something, there is no way you can enjoy time outside. I love summer, but not humid, sticky, vile heat.

Please Mother Nature...let us keep your beautiful sunshine, but please, PRETTY please, take about 10 degrees off of the humidex temperature of 43 degrees. Merci beaucoup.
