Is it hot enough for you?

The weather. We Canadians cavetch about how hot it is in the summer, how cold it is in the winter, how grey it is in the spring — are we ever happy with it? Or should I say, am I ever happy with it? I love a sunny day, regardless of the temperature, but, can I say, I hate the humidity.

This has been a particularly hot summer for Toronto, with high humidity to boot. Now, I love my hot days, and I love my sunny blue sky days, but, these  hot humid blue sky days, are for the birds, or perhaps, the cicadas, as I hear them singing outside my air conditioned den. I know, I know, I've complained in the dead of winter about longing for the summer and all its glory, but, I have to admit, the older I get, the more the humidity bothers me. I long for the dry prairie heat, but, don't want to move to the prairies. I like Toronto, and the lovely big body of water it sits on, which creates all this  humidity, so, I better just get more wick away clothing and chill out, for it's here to stay, at least for the foreseeable future.

Lemonade anyone?
