Thread Name: What's the weather like where you are?
Subject: RE: What's the weather like where you are?
It's too damned hot here on Vancouver Island. It's after 8:00 PM and it's still in the 90s.........bitch, bitch bitch...whine...whine...This is not normally a climate where air conditioning is required, but I sure would appreciate it tonight and so would the dogs. I think we'll probably sleep in the basement, to try and find some relief. Wait, I think I felt a breeze cropping up now, off the Sooke Basin, which might cool us down by midnight. Oh dam! it's gone again.

I popped in on my 84 year old Mum this afternoon, to see how she was faring and it was 96 degrees inside her wee mobile home, but it was hotter than that outside. I did manage to talk her into having a sponge bath and got the place more comfortable, by getting more air moving with her bathroom fan and the fan over her stove.

Its supposed to stay like this for another day or so, before we get back to more seasonable temperatures in the mid 70s. Fire hazard still extreme, promised rain, awhile back, only settled the dust.
