You can see from the weather plugin[?] on the left that it is pretty hot today - 29 degrees C, 38 with the humidex. Kind of like walking into a sauna when you go outside. I went for a 15km bike ride this morning before work...thank goodness it hadn't warmed up yet.
Pretty soon the Great White North may be the Sunny, Hot North. Globally, glaciers are melting at steady rates. Later this summer, on our family trip to Western Canada, we will stop and see the Columbia Icefields outside of Banff. We'd better see them now, as they may not be around when my kids are my age
