While we continue to pee in the house (it is a work in progress), the most mischief was caused by the heat.
It was unseasonably warm here last week. It was around 32C/90F when our seasonal expectations would be about 20C/68F. Of course our bodies had no time to adjust, as the previous week we had frost (meaning the temperatures were at freezing).
|Lady's car read 40C/104F when she got it in at work one day!|
It didn't cool down enough at night so by Friday night, our house that is air conditioning free, got up to about 27C/80F. Fortunately on Friday night the temperature dropped (and the storms missed us) and the house fell to 20C/68F overnight.
The province is under a complete fire ban and we watched the fire helicopters looking for fires in the hills and woods around us. It was a combination of cool and scary. As you may remember in May 2021 there was a small forest fire very close and we watched the water plans on our lake.
We kept cool enough by going to the lake, going on shorter walks/outings and learning to drink from the bucket Lady was filling to water her flowers.
