The heat is relentless. I realize a lot of you friends in the North East and UK are having a heat wave but for us on island, it’s simply called, the weather. And usually at the end of a heat wave, you get a storm with some rain accumulation. We haven’t a good downpour in a LONG time. We NEED TANK RAIN!!!!
Daily weather forecast for Bermuda- between 86 and 90 degrees and the humidity is always above 75%.
I know, you will say, ”but you can go to the beach.” But there is only so much a woman can go to the beach. I go kayaking and paddle boarding and although I enjoy it and it’s fun, especially at the end when I jump in the water off our dock in Harrington Sound, I am still hot and missing the cooler Canadian weather. This is just too much heat for this Canadian Mama.
If I want to do anything outside such as tend to my gardens, it has to be done before 11 am otherwise, I will burn to a crisp and just sweat my butt off.
They say ”the grass is always greener on the other side”, but I think in our case, it’s more like hay and our neighbors have nothing to envy us.
Every 3 to 4 days I have to put the hose in the pool and add water for about 45 minutes since the water is evaporating in the heat and I can’t let the water go below the water filter too much, otherwise the motorized pump will not work properly and the water will start to get cloudy and that would mean shocking the pool, a chemical treatment etc…since we are the ones paying for pool maintenance, I try to stay on top of it. The only thing about this 45 minutes of water every 4 days means, my water tank is getting low and that means I may have to order a water truck soon to top it off. Water is such a commodity at the moment. I try to shower when I go swim at National Stadium and Peter showers at Squash Club as much as possible. Did I mention, WE NEED TANK RAIN!!!!!
Daddy Cool and I are leaving next Wednesday for a little cottage country R&R and I can’t wait. It will be nice to get out of this heat.
