Wheeeew it's hot....

... I have just looked at my thermometer and the hottest it got today was ---36.4 C. Now, I know that the thermometer always reads a bit higher that the official temp but even at 34 C its warm , and when you calculate in the humidity, it starts to get a bit uncomfortable.

I am not complaining, because I prefer this weather over blowing snow and freezing temps, but it is a drastic change, we go from cold and wet to this and it is only the end of May.

The gardening will have to wait until after dinner tonight. Can't do much more because the curb side pick up for our compost bin does not come until next week, and my compost container is full also. Just have to fill up some spare garbage containers for the rest of the week.

Yes, I like my A/C too. It's been so hot that the radishes I planted last Thurs. came up on Mon, and I saw the beans today. Usually it takes a week and a half to two weeks. It's supposed to cool down a little this weekend. It would be nice to just have the windows open.

Hope it cools down for you guys. I'm pretty sure it's only going to get worse here. We're already in the low 90'sF. When we got back from lunch, it was hot enough to fry an egg on the car. Lane

Holy Crap, that's hot! Almost 100 F! Why do we complain so much about the weather--too cold in Jan , too hot in July--humans are very interesting creatures.

I am like you, either in the garden first thing in the morning, or after supper.

Hope you have a/c?
