It’s so hot

heat wave

Originally uploaded by inklake.

I can not believe the heat in this city. I moved to Vancouver to avoid having to use my air conditioning, to avoid having to walk around town on the verge of passing out from heat exhaustion. This weather is ridiculous and whoever is in charge needs to cut it out right now. I’d rather a summer of rain than what we’re getting.

What are we getting? Well according to the CBC we’re getting record highs and a blown power transformer downtown [cbc]. That might be cool with you, but I’m not able to chill out and take this. I’ve got fair skin, and I burn to a crisp after a few moments in the sun. It’s horrible, and I don’t know what to do about it.

At least this will shut people up who joke that Global Warming might be a good thing for Canada, since it’s apparently so cold here. Al Gore was right, why don’t we just all admit that now?

    Of course he’s right. We all know it’s getting hotter. But why won’t he man-up and debate his detractors in public? Just wondering ….

    Actually, global warming refers to an average yearly global temperature increase of about three degrees in a hundred years. This heat wave is a coincidence. But yeah, nearly unbearable!

    I love the heat. Vancouver is well suited for it too – I’m hitting the beach again today.

    “Actually, global warming refers to an average yearly global temperature increase of about three degrees in a hundred years.”

    But those three degrees can add up when you’re planning on living forever.

    If you moved from Toronto, rest assured it’s still way hotter. This is nothing.

    MIY cooling system. If you do a load of laundry hang it on a rack inside your place. It works best with towels and not too much humidity but it cools the room off several degrees. I suggested it to the pound and they loved the idea.
