Woke up at 6am to the glorious sound of falling rain. After two weeks of daily highs in the +32C range, the cooling of the air outside and inside the house is a great relief. I am sorry for the farmers if this causes a delay in their harvesting, but even some of them have admitted the crops have been getting too dry.
So I have thrown open all the windows, letting the cool breeze waft through the house. Much cooler temperatures are forecast for the next week, averaging around +23C, just perfect for this time of year; warm enough to dry out the crops fairly quickly and cool enough for my husband and I to enjoy some window washing and garage cleaning without sweltering.
