The Heat Continues


(image taken from the internet)

Here in Mexico City, the high temperature this afternoon will reach 90 degrees Fahrenheit (31 degrees Celsius).  The next three days will also be at 90.  April and May are always the hottest months here, but we are about ten degrees above normal.  The heat wave, which has been going on since February, is a constant topic of conversation here.

At least I am not in Mérida, Yucatán, one of my favorite cities in Mexico. Today's high will be 106 degrees.  The forecast says that tomorrow it will be 108, Thursday will be 109, and temperatures of over 100 are predicted all the way through next week.

And thank goodness I am not living in southern Asia where people have died from heatstroke.

And yet there are people out there who persist in saying that global warming is nothing but a hoax.
