Heatwave in Montreal
|One of the coolest spots - inside City Hall where I was filming.|
|Museum of Fine Arts - great air conditioning today.|
With humidity it felt 41C in Montreal today. Not a good day to be in the city filming. The actual temperature was 35C. I just drove back to the country and noticed it was 37C (98F) in Laval , 33C at the bottom of our hill and 30C here at the lake. All going in the right direction but still feels hot to me. Thinking of a dip in the lake before bed. Hang on, that was lightening. Swim's cancelled.
|Swim in the thunder and lightening anyone?|
Coming from Newcastle it is hard to imagine what 35C feels like. Today I can tell you it feels like someone standing with a hair dryer blowing in your face all day. The streets seemed quiet to me. I reckon people were staying indoors. I call into a store after walking 5 minutes in this heat and let out a sigh of relief at the icy air conditioning. That's what everyone says, responds the owner.
|No hot heads in here. Nice cool air.|
A night in the Ice Hotel would be nice about now.
