The Year 2003 had a ‚century summer‘ with weeks above 86°F. Looks like it was a short century, as this years summer is even worse with many trees loosing their leafs. Whole sidewalks are covered with them. Since weeks I am standing every evening in the garden watering ferns and some trees. Maybe this will come to an end soon, as more and more communes are forbidding watering and car washing as the municipal reservoirs are getting low.
But maybe relief is coming soon, todays weather forecast told after 2 even hotter days we’re getting some rain and dropping temperatures on the weekend. I honestly cannot wait for it.
