Currently most of the world suffers from a heat wave. Factories and schools are closed. Finally the heat wave hit British Columbia too. It’s 23 Celsius (74F), hot enough to fry eggs and bacon on the car hood. To hot to go out of the house, even the dog refuses to be taken on his daily walk. I wanted to go on a scouting trip but I would have to be out of my mind to stomp around in the woods in this heat, even the birds quit singing. The streets are pleasantly devoid of any traffic the shops are empty too or even closed due to the heat. In short it is a boring weekend, which I spend in my air-conditioned office catching up on long due work and the latest news and happenings.
The only good news about this heat wave is that I do not have to mow the lawn, which has turned into shades of brown. Interestingly enough, the only green in the lawn are the weeds. It’s a bit like with the World Hunting Association. Despite all the heat they got from the hunting community and industry the stubbornly refuse to wilt and turn brown. Like the weed in my lawn the WHA seems to feed of the heat.
