Today is Canada day, I can't tell you how many times I've been watching the news and feel privileged to live in this country. Yes we have our flaws but they pale in comparison to most other countries.
I would like to talk about the fun things we were supposed to be doing but there is a giant elephant in the room..... again. I don't go to the city anymore because I don't like crowds. I like the smaller towns, I find them more fun. However events are being cancelled left right and center because of the weather... again. This time it's an extreme heat "event" like never seen before. The temperature will soar to 36 Celsius or 97 Fahrenheit, now I know that may not sound so bad to people in the warmer climates but it will come with a suffocating humidity, the results will cause it to be more like 47 Celsius or 116 Fahrenheit. Absolutely unheard of for this part of the country. The humidity at that level doesn't allow the body of people or animals to cool down from sweating because the air doesn't absorb our moisture anymore. Already at six in the morning I can barely breath outside.
Many Canada day events have been affected by weather in the past. I get so tired of people saying, "this is normal" no it isn't, maybe for a jungle somewhere but not Ottawa Canada. We do actually get high temperatures in summer and many humid days but not like this! Last week it went down to almost freezing again, we had a lite frost but lucky for us, no plants were damaged, that also never happened before this late in June, look over here, pay no attention to that climate change behind the curtain.
