I suppose it’s officially a heat wave when the smell of the rendering plants below hastings take over much of the eastside, the whole neighbourhood smells like rotting garbage and I’ve got a sore throat from the diminishing air quality in the city. Oh Joy to all of you who love weather like this, but a few degrees cooler would be just fine by me. Say – maybe 25 instead of 35? I suppose we’re lucky in East Van though, a co-worker from Coquitlam told me that he took a photo of his thermometer on the back deck yesterday evening and it read 40 degrees! That’s about enough of that. On the plus side, it is making time in the office seem desirable, what with the air conditioning up here on the 15th floor.
