Another roasting day here in the Cape. Despite our best efforts, the beagle has melted into a pool of fur and ears on the kitchen floor. Even my usually cool office has been infiltrated by the ridiculous heat.
I would love to hit the pool and quaff an ice cold beer, but I have a 4pm meeting.
On a Friday.
In Cape Town.
Who does that?
(Can’t really blame them, to be honest: it was a cancelled flight scenario. But that sort of factual info ruins the drama.)
On the plus side, our plans for this evening seem to have been shifted to next week, so I might take the opportunity to light the braai, because who doesn’t want to stand next to the searing heat of coals when there is searing heat everywhere else? If I put it out in the sun now, will I even need to light it?
And then, tomorrow? Well, despite the headline above, Windguru is telling me about all day drizzle. Which would be welcome right now, but also massively unexpected.
Either way, it surely can’t be as hot as today.
