An oasis amidst the heat

We are so blessed that our back yard is (relatively) cool and inviting on this day, when the humidex reached 46C, or 115F.  We can feel and listen to the breeze, listen to the grass grow.

This is the real world. This weather is uncomfortable, unpleasant, potentially dangerous. It is quite possibly a precursor of what is to come in the years ahead. It is good to be comfortable with appreciating the real world.

    1. We’re very fortunate. The shade (and often a breeze) means that the deck can be quite tolerable. Although the humidex might be north of 40, the deck can feel tolerable. Then after sitting outside for a while, its very refreshing to take a not hot shower then pat some – not all – of the wetness off instead fully towelling dry.
