It’s Too Darn Hot

Google’s been whispering nasty stuff this week. Weather forecasts that climb into singe-your-eyebrows-off territory. Humidex readings in the 40C range.

It’s been Hot. Good Morning Vietnam hot…

Canadians aren’t good with sweltering. We crank up the air conditioning, head out to the nearest lake with a cooler full of ice and beer, and start up the helicopter.

Huh?

The helicopter. You know, to pick up the ice cream cake from Dairy Queen.

The RCMP in Tisdale, Saskatchewan aren’t thrilled with the pilot who landed his helicopter in an empty school parking lot to pick up an ice cream cake.

To be fair, the pilot’s hometown of Leroy doesn’t have it’s own Dairy Queen, and it’s an hour and a half drive from Tisdale. What’s a guy to do?

Cole Porter would understand…

  1. Wow. Where to even start.

    Let’s start with the positive from my point of view. I guess I can take some comfort in knowing that not every selfish, entitled jerk ( and I’m being nice here) is American.

    Why is it so hot? Climate change. What is one of the biggest contributors to climate change? Air travel. Taking a helicopter to pick up an ice cream cake? Talk about selling out the future for one’s own selfishness. I mean, wow. This is exactly why we are screwed.

    It’s just all too depressing.

      1. With what came out this week about how we need to make changes, like yesterday, it was my only thought. I wish people would start thinking about the future.
