Feeling Hot, Hot, Hot!

Too hot here today. It was well over 30Celsius today, but there was a humidex warning, and it felt more like the high 40s. It was our hottest day this summer, and apparently we were the hottest spot in Nova Scotia. I just checked one of the local radio station sites, and we're reading 29 right now, they're at 24. (They're 1/2 hour drive from here.) I was half surprised that it got that hot today since we had one of the most severe thunderstorms I can ever remember last night. It was terrible. Our power went out at 3am and didn't come back on for a little over four hours. That's the longest we've ever had an outage in the five years we've lived in this house. Then at 4:30am the storm was at its worst. Hubby was supposed to go to work at that time, but I wouldn't let him. It was just like being in a disco with a strobe light going constantly. The chain lightning just did not stop, and where there were no street lights on it was blinding! I don't mind thunderstorms usually, but that was on the ridiculous side. Figured he'd get hit by lightning hooking up to the trailer at the paper mill. It's right on the water and very open.

Hope to have some FO pics in the next few days, depending on the heat. Tomorrow it's supposed to be a little cooler but still hot. I will have my first rpm finished tonight, just doing the toe now. I see the new Magknits is up, but there isn't really anything there that catches my eye. The flower corsage is cute if I had a little girl.

Happy knitting!

Wow! You got the storm a lot worse than we did. Our power flickered, but that was all. Lightening lasted about 40 minutes. And you think it would have made it cooler!
Heard it was really bad in Halifax.

Gosh! You seem to be getting the heatwave now that we've been having here for the past 7 weeks - temps in the 100's every day, argh! Here the heat broke fortunately, it's raining now and it's so wonderfully cool! Fingers crossed that it'll cool down very soon over there as well, it's just impossible to cope with these temps!
