Driving down the street in my own residential area at 5:30pm today, I came across a fox eating a live squirrel on my neighbour's front lawn. Now that's something you don't see every day! Zooming for the camera in this intense humidity, I worked up quite a sweat. I did approach the fox from the car, windows down, AC blasting. No way I was going to get out of the car. I'm not that brave. But that fox was only about 10 feet away and seemed completely unconcerned by my presence. Is it the heat that has caused this animal to promenade the front lawns of our street?
Summer. Yep, it's here. Forty-two degrees celcius - the humidex today and for me, it is just too much. Yet, I am one of the blessed ones. I have an air conditioned home and car and my classroom has a window air conditioner that takes the edge off if nothing else.
