Hot while driving on the 401 Kitchener-Guelph, temperature read 38C though 34C once back on country roads. Pretty sure the temperatures close to the surface -- say 0-10 feet was much closer to 37C or 38C just about everywhere. Clappison Corners (Highway 6&5) in Hamilton was reading 37C. Only the second time I've seen above 37C, last year it was 39C when I left Vaughan. But again, that's the temperature at 5 feet or so.

Today was simply gross though.

Lucky you. We need rain here in Ottawa but none is expected. Overcast and 24 at the moment.

My grass is green because I soak the crap out it at least twice week with the sprinkler during these heatwaves.

I have the car thermometer set to real degrees (not communist European Celsius ) but anyway it registered 95 as I was leaving and stayed that way until I hit the urban heat island around Richmond Hill when it jumped to 98, and as I got closer to the city, 99, and then 100.

Thank god for global warming. Now I won't have to move to Florida in my old age to stay warm.

It won't be an option anyway -- Florida will be under water!

Looks like Summer has finally arrived in Vancouver. It reached 23 C, yesterday and it was really hot in the house. Don't think I could handle those 35 C in Toronto.

Watering that often reduces grass tolerance to dry spells, as its roots won't push as far down into the soil. There's nothing biologically wrong with a brownish lawn.

I only water the backyard when there is no rain as it's where I spend the most of my time. The front faces south and I let it cook.

The weather can't make up it's mind here. About an hour again it was supposed to rain with a 70% chance of thunderstorms. It never did, and now Environment Canada says there's only a 40% chance of anything. Outside right now it is sunny with very few clouds. I was hoping for a thunderstorm.
AH well.
