Another VERY hot day rebuilding the Jamie Bell Playground in High Park. Thanks to all the volunteers who braved the heat with us! If you're in the area tomorrow (July 7) stop by for the Community Build Day. For more info visit www.ward13.com

As far as the heat goes, yesterday was suppose to be a record setting pretty hot day in Toronto. Here's the weather conditions, according to the CTVnews website:
Toronto broke its previous high temperature record for July 6, after the mercury hit 35 C at Pearson Airport around 3 p.m.
Previously, the hottest July 6 on record in Toronto was in 1988, when the temperature reached a sweltering 34.7 C. The lowest recorded temperature of 5.6 C was recorded in 1965.
An extreme heat alert was issued in Toronto for the third-consecutive day as a heat wave continued to wash across the city.
35 degrees C is about 95 degrees F. Not too terribly bad I guess, considering it was over 100 degrees today where I live. 95 is a nice mild summer day in my part of the world. Of course, I got to sit inside an air conditioned house all day, and Mike and crew didn't. The high humidity probably didn't make for pleasant working conditions either.
