Bitter Grounds - espresso fueled ramblings

Monday, August 21, 2017

It's been unreasonably hot and humid here in Toronto over the last week. With the humidex, the temp has been pushed over 40c (that's over 100 F for my American friends) for days now. Plus so dry, it's become a worry. Well, today (Sat), Mother Nature sent us some relief. The promised, but not believed, cold front just roared over the city, bringing rain and lower temperatures. I stood on the balony and I could feel the temp dropping by the minute.  The clouds were moving overhead so fast, it was amazing. I did manage to snag this before it blew overtop: Photo of storm clouds rolling over western GTA

Don't often see wannabe funnel clouds over Toronto, but it looked like this cloud bank was trying it's best. The wind was whirling around and around, picking up speed for a short time, which caused this.   It's west facing, must have been over Etobicoke and Mississauga.   

Right now, windows open, enjoying the fresh air. I won't have to water anything on the balcony tonight. The pots are over flowing with water, the wind has died down and the rain is coming down in bucket. Keep your fingers crossed the humidity doesn't return.
