You can see and feel the heat in those photos SHH! You should post a counterpoint one from the snow storm! That was probably the most visually stunning photo set of the year to date - and with no skyscrapers!

Hmm.. I think there should be yearly SSP awards! Photo thread of the year, poster of year, newcomer of the year, most likely to cause a sh*tstorm...

Another hot week, with hopefully our first official 30 days of the year.

Highs of 26 30 31 29 27 25 26

Second half of summer has been a huge improvement over June/July.

Gorgeous day. We headed an hour north of Cobourg, into the Canadian Shield country. Always glad it's so close by for a different type of terrain to enjoy.

This a meromictic lake (water never mixes) I think that's how it achieves this colour


Lots of lizards (skinks) running around in the rocky outcroppings




A different lake

Heat warning officially issued for tomorrow, with highs in the 30s expected.

The sun was deceptive today....maybe SHH felt it was warm out, but I spent most of the day out as well and was constantly swapping between wearing a sweater and not. I think had we not just had a week of hot weather that today would have felt normal, but I kept alternating between "its too warm for this sweater" and "its too cold to not wear a sweater". Weird in between day.

High was 17.0 degrees in my neighbourhood. Some of the warmer locations downtown and in the Waterford Valley likely cracked 20 though.

I meant the sun was strong as in my skin was burning. I was only outside for a little white (toutons with my parents downtown) and I am definitely burnt - in like 2 hours sitting/eating/chatting.

And even though it was cool and there was a nice breeze, the sun ROASTED the inside of my house this evening. Has to be 35C in here. I had to put tinfoil in the windows to try to stop it. Every window open and fans blowing the hot air out the back of the house, trying to suck in cooler air through the windows on the front So annoying.

After weeks of rain, Seoul is finally starting to dry out. It got rough here for awhile.

Yep, and the color gets more pronounced in the fall vs. early spring.

That looks rough in Korea.

Been high and dry here in my area of Japan since the start of August.

I see there is the potential for 40 degree temps in the BC interior tomorrow.
