With case numbers shooting up in Ontario, Alberta and B.C., health experts worry that Canada could be going into its worst wave (4th) of COVID-19 yet, unless governments act now to stop it.
Calculations show that Alberta’s case numbers are doubling roughly every 11 days. So, if that trend continues Alberta could see 1,200 new cases per day in early September, and 2,400 daily cases by the middle of the month.
After an atypically cool, wet and sunless July, Toronto is finally getting hit with some traditional summer weather — and hard. Perhaps a bit harder than some might have wished for.
The last two weeks have been a painfully humid, oppressively hot, and record-breaking extreme kind of August in Toronto with temperatures sitting at 32 C as of 4 p.m. on Monday.
Higher than what was initially forecast by Environment Canada, this marks the warmest conditions observed at Toronto's Pearson International Airport on an August 23 since 1949, when temperatures reached 31.7 C.
And it's humid, too, with air so soupy and thick meteorologists say it feels closer to 40 C in the city.
In May I wrote a post about the Foundry. This week the city of Toronto struck a deal with province to save part of the Foundry. Two of the historic site's four buildings will be preserved as part of a redevelopment that will include affordable housing.
We usually spend the weekend at home. That is when we get the usual chores done, laundry, house cleaning, plant caring. We prefer being out and about during the week when there are less crowds. Grocery shopping also get done during the week with no particular schedule.
We received our new undercounter kitchen lights, these are not battery operated but are rechargeable via a USB cord.
I received the new queen pillows for the shams to go with our new duvet and cover. I finally broke down and got a duvet. Pic to come.
Matty’s Patty’s Burger Club originates from RVCAloha in Hawaii and was created by Matty Matheson and Pat Tenore, founder of RVCA. It all began with giving back to the community as they handed out burgers to local youth at a skatepark. The notion evolved into a burger shop in Toronto, inspired by friendships through food.
Wednesday John golfed and I picked up groceries. I wanted to pick up another of their BOGO on hamburger.
Thursday I went for a mani-pedi, John took the car in for maintenance and then went to Costco.
Friday John golfed and I went to the AGO, I had tickets for 10:30 and whether I took public transit or our shuttle bus it amounted to the same. So I took the 9 AM bus which game me an hour to kill which is not a problem for me and my camera.
Yet another street closed due to a new building going up.
I was at the AGO to see Matthew Wong's Blue View.
I walked over to Dundas Square and then came home.
