Google says, "Happy Canada Day!" too with a special Google Search home page doodle.

Wherever you are celebrating and however you are celebrating, stay safe and stay cool!

Currently (9.12 AM EST) in Ottawa, it is already 27C with a humidex of 39C, going up to a high today of 36C (humidex 47C)! This will be the hottest Canada Day in Ottawa in many years, just shy of the record of 36.7C set in 1963.

For those not on the metric system:

My plans are to stay in the air conditioning as much as possible and move slowly. :panic:

I just learned that humidex is a Canadian concept, not universal. :coffee:

Humidex - Wikipedia

The humidex (short for humidity index) is an index number used by Canadian meteorologists to describe how hot the weather feels to the average person, by combining the effect of heat and humidity. The term humidex is a Canadian innovation coined in 1965. The humidex is a dimensionless quantity based on the dew point.

Range of humidex: Scale of comfort:

20 to 29: Little to no discomfort
30 to 39: Some discomfort
40 to 45: Great discomfort; avoid exertion
Above 45: Dangerous; heat stroke quite possible

Put some background music that she is used to hearing. Might help muzzle the outside noise
