Relief

July’s first half was hot, humid, and frequently cloudless so we endured what we had to. The last ten days or so were like this – a few degrees cooler, often filled with billowing cumulus, and frequent light to moderate rainfall. What a relief!

We will see what August sees fit to bring our way.

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.
