How's the weather in Alberta Vic?

I agree, anything above 22c is waisted on me, I'm in the garden 7am or 8pm watering etc, like the plants I wilt in the heat, otherwise it's put down the awning on the south window, and stay inside as much as possible.

Tomorrow I've been asked to drive a wedding couple around town in my old T, I hope it has cooled down by then, July 1st should also be Canada day celebration but it was moved to Saturday (due to Covid) so that may be a parade drive!

Luckily we have a very dry heat so it isn't as bad as in the east where it is humid, but this heat also causes the snow on mountain tops to melt and the rivers are high and if it rains we will have big floods!

Now 52c is a bit too much, but temperature is a bit like age, just a number, it's how you deal with it! Eggy 20c at three in the morning was very welcome.

On the bright side tomorrow in Alberta most of our Covid restrictions are lifted!

When we lived at Cramlington the living room was North facing so in the summer I could potter, and water, the South facing back garden and then come in to cool down - if i could stop the OH from putting the heating on!

Since we moved to Seghill, with a South facing living room I hide in the back of the bungalow and have a 'Stay Cool, Artic Blast' personal air cooler whilst the OH stays in the South facing room, often with windows closed, in the 27c+.

Hope tomorrow's forecast for Alberta - 31c + rain - keeps you and the old T running 🏎️

      All they want to do is cradle their newborn baby in their arms.
      But Bedlington parents Carly Walker and Ryan Murphy have been forced to watch from the sidelines as their daughter fights for her life.
      Little Ayda Faith Murphy was born prematurely on March 31, weighing just 4lbs, at Newcastle's Royal Victoria Infirmary.
      Rushed for her first operation straight after birth and another at just four days old, she's battling terrifying odds after being diagnosed with a series of incredibly rare birth defects.
      An almost unique variant of gastroschisis, a defect of the abdominal wall, has left her intestines pushing up into her chest - a condition doctors estimate is suffered by no more than 10 babies worldwide.
      Meanwhile, her heart appears to have flipped over and lies on the wrong side of her chest, while she's receiving oxygen from a machine due to her underdeveloped lungs.
