    They canceled classes at University of Victoria today... and yet I still saw the post person delivering mail carrying two big sacs. As if they canít teach in air conditioned classes. And with all the school students have missed. Yes, not a fan of teachers..they whine a lot.

    I recall past heat waves suffering for a few days laying in bed sweltering then remembering that we had AC , we rarely used it.

    New home now no AC but being only 45 minutes from the Rockies cooler air moves down in the evenings to cool things down. If things get a little worse I just take my pillow to a lower level, haven't reached the lowest level of our home yet.

    Heat stroke is the #1 weather-related killer.
    Not remotely the same as Covid. You can't be infected with Frostbite or Heatstroke nor is there a weather vaccine nothing other then proper clothing and being smart.

    In Canada and other northern nations life would come to a complete standstill if we didn't learn to cope with the cold 5-6 months of the year just as residents in scorching hot climates do, you learn to adapt if you want to live in extreme locations. Minus 40 or plus 40 I've never missed a day from work or school due to weather.

    3 months "vacation" which you conveniently forgot to mention is actually unpaid layoff.
    I went to the grocery store and there was a sign at the door. It said no food or drinks inside.
    ........So I went home.
