Tropics

  • 1st Aug, 2006 at 3:27 PM

It's hot.

Way too hot. Not that kind, dry heat that makes for comfortable lounging. Oh, no. Montréal has been mysteriously and magically transplanted into the tropics.

There's a squirrel on my fire escape, legs splayed in all directions, trying desperately to cool off. He didn't even move when I opened the window for a better look. I quickly shut it again as a wall of heat hit me in the face. Can't let the air conditioning escape.

Am I glad I invested in that monster. I've got fans strategically positioned around the house to move the cold air from by bedroom into the rest of the apartment.

And you people complain about the winters here.

I make every effort not to complain about the winters.

I'm glad to hear you have a monster to keep you cool :-)

Indeed - so thick and humid you can chew the air.

That is why Montréal is great. Extremes!

Sorry, I couldn't get a good angle on him.

I'm greedy when it comes to squirrels.

(umh, I don't know what that means either)

Re: For the record :P
That's true. And downtown Toronto really does have a pleasant winter.

We need beaches. And palm trees. And coconuts, and pineapples, and daiquiris.

I'm sure the newly native life will soon assert itself.

Mm, tropics. I wish it were humid here. Minus the mosquitos, of course.
