Heat wave? Sorry to hear it!PointsHubby wrote: ↑Aug 11th, 2017 1:45 pmYou can have some of mine!!!!!!
Summer finally arrived in Eastern Ontario last week.
Although we are still getting MORE than our share of rain, at least it is not grey & overcast every.single.day.
Finally get to see the sun, which also means the temperature has gone up from the low twenties (hovering around 70 F to now around 80 F).
This also means when it is not raining, we actually have Summer Evenings when we can sit out... Not in the teens or lower (60s or 50s)
But the bugs are bad... All that rain, and no hot spell to kill them off. Mosquitos in August, are not normal.
Rumor has it that we may see a HEAT WAVE later this month... Hard to believe, but it is truly welcome. Bring on the heat & humidity, so we can finally say that there was a Summer in Eastern Ontario in 2017
We've had more than enough heat here in the GTA for one summer already: days in the 30s in May (!!!), already 4 3- or 4-day stretches with temps in the 30s in June, July and August, only 2 days in the last 14 with highs below 28, a stretch of 23 days in July where the highs were 28 or above on all but 3 of those days...
Basically: ENOUGH @#$%^&*+ HEAT ALREADY!!! That's why a few of us in this thread have mentioned that we're hoping/praying/begging for "Autumn in August™"... and it can't come soon enough!
As for sitting out on a summer's eve, I figure comfortable temperatures would be nicer for doing so, say around 16-ish rather than muggy mid-20s, which are rather unpleasant when there's no breeze... and in summer in southern Ontario, any wind invariably disappears as soon as the sun sets.
