Blazing Hot Sunday

It felt like 35 degrees celcious, although it was probably around 33. On websites it’s reported as just 31 degrees C which is 88 degrees F. Are you kidding me? My skin felt scorched.

Don’t be deceived if you’re planning to travel here. The humidity is a killer. Pack very light clothing. According to Wikipedia:

High humidity makes people feel hotter outside in the summer because it reduces the effectiveness of sweating to cool the body by reducing the evaporation of perspiration from the skin

    I wanted to DIE all weekend every second I spent outside. My helper said it’s usually like this from June through October and this year has just been dry…PLEASE tell me that’s not true. I’ll never survive here if it is.

      It gets a whole lot better in Nov and Dec which are the rainy cooler months. But I am sad to say yes…the other months are hell for me….without air-conditioning. I go absolutely bonkers without air-conditioning and get real grouchy.

    The photo looks like it’s taken from an airplane. As much as I hate the weather, I think I’ve kinda assimilated. As long as I don’t do outdoor activities or carry heavy things on hot days, I’m okay. I hardly ever perspire when walking to lunch. I think my thaw rate from emerging from the igloo office is like 1/2 hr.

      you sound like my sister…she never sweats. She actually feels cold when the air-conditioning is on and will put on a shawl!

      Hey glad you noticed. When I looked at the photo I thought it looked a bit like from a plane too. Took it from the ground though. Our clouds are just that puffy! The hotter it is, the prettier our cloud formations.
