Well, I’m pleased to report that both me and my cat Pepper got through it unscathed.
By which I mean the extreme heat the UK experienced on Monday and Tuesday; that’s 18th and 19th July 2022. Tuesday the temperature reached 39°C here in Manchester, in some places it went to over 40°C, for the first time in history.
The photos I have hung on a string of lights started curling.
I contemplated going into the office on Tuesday, as it has air-con, but then I decided to stick with working from home, as I was worried about Pepper and wanted to keep an eye on her, besides, I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to even get into the office–the tram lines might have started melting or something. Pepper stayed in my bedroom for the whole day, I kept checking on her every now and then and each time she gave me a look that said: “why you make me suffer like this?” like it was my fault. Cats…
As for me, I was more stressed about the thought of the heatwave than the actual heatwave. In the end, the trick was a wet towel on my head.
What a relief today’s very pleasant 21°C was!
But I’m afraid we’re in for heatwaves and extreme weather like this for the foreseeable future…
I thought this would fit this week’s Weekly Posts Wednesday Challenge – Extreme.
