Stay Cool Everyone!


July 15th, at least in Japanese culture, is considered the hottest day of the year. A lot of people will probably be eating unagi eels today, I bet. Even in Seattle, it’s been unusually warm lately: the days reach 30°C (86°F)! That’s unusual for Seattle summers. 😉 There’s a classic comedy-skit from the local TV show Almost Live that talks about the short, cold Seattle summers (link here):

It’s true: summer in Seattle is usually short, cold and grey with a few sunny days.

My wife and kids are currently in Japan and they told me it’s really hot and humid right now. Interestingly, they arrived in Tokyo just hours before the Typhoon came, but they said they were fine.

Anyhow, if you’re in the Northern Hemisphere, stay cool everyone!

P.S. If you’re in the Southern Hemisphere, stay warm. 😉

  1. Unfortunately they have become much of a rarity with over fishing. There is even talk of them being an endangered species. I hope that it isn’t to long before the numbers come back. Human irresponsibility towards nature. I hope the same thing doesn’t happen where you are!
