Well, this has been the summer from hell, far as I'm concerned.
Normally, in my area, southwestern Ontario, we get 7 or 8 days of heat where the temperature is over 30C. And they don't usually last more than a couple of days in a row.
So far we've had 21 days, broken heat records, where it lasts a week or 2 in a row. And with our heat, it's always humid. We don't have "dry heat".
And no rain. I feel so bad for the animals and birds, and of course the farmers! How about people on wells? They have to notice that the water is low, and be careful.
I only hope that August gets cooler, normal temps.
I can only imagine, but then probably not, what our food costs are going to be.
