Beating the Heat

It was a very hot summer in August and early September. A few weeks ago, the temperature got into the high thirties. I know in some parts of the southern United States, the upper thirties (upper nineties in Fahrenheit) is nothing to bet bent out of shape over, but here in Canada, that's ... darned hot.
