and our hottest day of summer is almost over!
Translation: 22°C = 71.6°F; 26.3° = 78°F; and 43° =109.4°F
We started the day early--5:30 a.m walk. Bella ran away and got under the gate into the high school and chased feral cats.
It's a safe, no-traffic area at that time of morning, so Roxy and I continued our walk with HER.
When we got home, Bella was at our front gate barking to be let in.
We're sure the neighbours enjoyed that!
Then it was off to the river.
Hopefully, to become exhausted.

Bella was in deep trouble and being ignored. She was nearly left at home, but knowing what the temperature would be later, was allowed to go.
SHE did NOT throw rocks for her....but another peep felt sorry for her, so Bella got to chase rocks after all.
Then it was home for baths...
and hibernation in the airconditioning.

We were lucky. Further west and north the temps were much higher. The highest today was 49.2° (120.56°F) not a record breaker, but still hot!
It is starting to cool now (7 p.m)...slowly... and will be much cooler for the next few days. We'll be able to get out on guard duty again.
