The Mercury Is Rising


It happens almost every year, but the arrival of the hot weather still takes me by surprise. Yesterday, the mercury reached 28 C and today it is heading up to 30 degrees. It is hard to believe that mere days ago we were freezing and had wind and rain!

Today would be the perfect day to escape to the lakefront, where it is generally cooler, but I had to make do with a dip in the local pool. The photo shown here was taken at the end of May last year.
