Oh my god it's over 30! Get back in the house!

*Yes* 32C /90F is hottish for Toronto, but sheesh. It's not any 37 or 40, let alone an Arizonian or Iraqi 50C/ 120F. (My Iraqi neighbour gets all teary-eyed remembering those invigorating 50C summers at home, especially when he's shivering through a 15C autumn afternoon in a down jacket.) I was in Tokyo the year the night temperatures stayed above 29/ 84 for weeks at a time and lived to tell the tale. Get a grip.
