Hottest Day Ever

A few days ago I was in Peru where it is winter.  The nights were cold, near freezing, and we piled on the blankets.  (I’ll post an entry about the trip soon.)

Now I am back in Vancouver, and today, Wednesday, July 29, 2009, was the hottest day ever recorded in Vancouver at 33.8 C (92.8 F).  That’s crazy hot when you do not have air conditioning.  It’s after 1 am right now and inside my place — with all the windows and doors open — it’s 32 C (90 F).
