Today it’s been around 35°C in the shade – very oppressive, and so the heatwave in France continues. There isn’t going to be any let up before the weekend and meanwhile the powers-that-be here are panicking over the memory of 15,000 deaths during the last “canicule” in Summer 2003.
The weather is certainly the same as back then – but me being a mere Brit I still haven’t quite got used to actually having a “Summer”. In fact whilst we were in the Jura last week the weather down there was 10°C COOLER than it is here in the Paris area presently. We miss that!
