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.
