You couldn’t watch the news this week without the weather being the top story.  Most of the country has been in a heat wave.  In the Northeast, we are used to temperatures in the 9os in August.  However, we are not used to the 100s in July. I have found myself doing all my errands in the morning, so I don’t have to go out in the heat.  I saw a report on NBC news about how do you show a heat wave.  In a snowstorm/blizzard, it is easy to show the extreme weather.  Here are a few from a blizzard we had in February of 2010:

How do you show pics of heat??  People sweating? Struggling to exercise?  I don’t have any pictures of the heatwave.  What I have found is that my friends are starting to suffer from summer cabin fever.  When it is 100+ outside and the heat index is 115, you don’t have the energy or motivation to do much.  Which is worse cold or heat?  I am not a fan of either extreme.  When it is a blizzard, you are forced to not go anywhere.  Also, in the COLD you can dress warm.  In the HEAT it is tough to get cooler.  However, with heat I feel guilty not doing anything.  Why?  What am I going to say, I am hot- sounds like a whimp.

Enjoy whatever weather you are having!  And time with friends and family.

  1. We have only gotten to the high 80’s -low 90’s in northern Ontario and like you are accustom to hard winter weather. What we are having a difficult time with in our part of Ontario is the added humidity. Mid-Northern Ontario usually is less humid so that rise in temperature knocks us over. Hopefully summer will become a bit more accommodating for all of us.
