housewife housewife:
I enjoy thunderstorms too. Grandson not so much.

When we had our tornado warning a couple of days ago I went outside to watch. My neighbour was there too for the same reasons. So of course, we talked about the weather.

That's one of those times when the weather becomes the news.

Watching weather is fine. Though people in areas that don’t have tornadoes find it horrific when you mention standing outside a pizza joint waiting on your order watch funnels start to form then go back up! Or find out your not hiding in the basement but outside bbqing. We had time and the sky wasn’t green!

^^^ I learnt that in the 80's. Green sky bad. Bright green is better than dark green.

Environment Canada issues warning for 'prolonged, dangerous' heat wave in northern Alberta

8O

Up to 38 for the middle of next week. Which isn't unheard of in the last week of July. But the first week . . .yikes! More 100 year old records will get crushed.

Hell in Calgary for the entire new week. But it could be worse, much worse. Like those poor bastards up in Fort McMurray who are gonna get +40 on Wednesday.

Stupid hot in BC too. It’s 40+ here in the valley and forecast to be like this for a few more days. This had better be a one off and not a preview of summer.

Everything west of the Mississippi River in the US is getting hammered hard, and has been since early June at least. This is probably going to be one of the worst summers on record for excessive heat.

And wait until the forest fires kick in to add to the fun. Image

Don’t forget the record setting (for now) drought happening in the western US too. It’s going to be a hellfire of a summer.

^^^

Rough night of sleep. Had the fans in the windows all night, and it only dropped the temp in the house 3 degrees. 8O

Expecting +40 by Wednesday, and this system may be with us till early next week.

Sure, this system was great last November to January that brought us a mild winter. But this is the price we pay in Summer.

Take care of the furry friends! They take it hard in this weather.

I take a paint brush, and a cup of ice water, and paint the cat till she is soaked. You can't bathe cats, and you shouldn't try, but the 'boiled frog' approach works.
