Beat the Heat!

19 Jun

It’s a hot one out there! Today’s anticipated high in Toronto is 32 degrees but it will feel more like 40 with the humidex. Now I wish I bought that air conditioner off that sketchy homeless guy in Yonge-Dundas Square.

Needless to say, the city’s medical officer has issued a heat alert. Get inside, people, and stay cool! If you’re like me and don’t have an air conditioner, several cooling areas have been set up around the city. How will you know it’s a cooling area? It has this chilly sign:

Cool down where?

Or, if you don’t feel like embarking on a cooling area hunt, just check out the map here.

And while you’re walking there, keep your eyes on those outdoor construction sites because the big guns come out in this kind of heat – if you know what I mean.
