God damn I can't wait for monsoon season to officially begin. At least then it'll be wet and all crazy and stuff, with lightning and dust storms and whatnot. And there'll be plenty of entertaining news about the foolhardy and/or just plain dumb people trying to drive through flash flood filled washes and floodplains.
They said this week would be 34º Monday to fucking Friday with a "humidex" (aka Satan's flatulance - SBD) of 40º and a "UV rating" of nine. The sun goes to 11. I almost went out and bought a machete but it was too goddamned hot. Today has been relatively (hah!) cool. It's 25º now outside but my place has been cooking for days so it is hotter inside than it is outside. Fuck. I should be able to heat my apartment next winter given all the energy stored in this place. Solar enrgy? Keep it!
Welcome to Ottawa-fucking-Canada. This is ridiculous. Canada is supposed to be moderate.
Dude, the best: slow lightning. I have no idea why it happens, but you get this huge, forked beast, just inching across the sky. Magnificent. Not that a blinding white sheet can't be brilliant, too. Mostly the flashy-flash here tonight, at least from my vantage point.
