I sympathize with the heat and smoke thing. Here in the Great White North we are still seeing temps in the 30 plus degrees celsius range, very unusual for us. We are also being told on a regular basis to stay inside because of the air quality from the fires next door in British Columbia. Has been like this all summer and sleeping is not easy. We tend not to have air conditioning up here as summer temps are normally comfortable and the nights cool down and make sleeping comfortable. Not the case this summer and leaving windows open with the smoke is not always possible. The smoke made it impossible to walk the boys on several days. We back on to a golf course and sometimes I can't even see the fairway because the smoke haze was like thick smog. Open windows would make your house smell like a campfire. I am definitely sleep deprived and I cannot believe I am saying this, but looking forward to slightly cooler temps for fall and rain in B.C. to help those poor people fighting all those fires.
