It is still February, yet even in the evening, the cooling fans have come on and I’m down to a single t-shirt. During the day, it feels as hot as summer which officially is still almost half a year away so the actual hot season may be the hottest I’ve ever seen. We’ve even started thinking about the air conditioners we should add in the new office.
If I look at what has changed since last year, the main thing I notice is more roads and less trees. Maybe that is a contributing factor. Global warming maybe? Whatever the cause may be, the extreme heat, combined with all the power shortages which are bound to return at the most inopportune time, will make this summer a scorching and unbearable one. Be warned.
