When we visited Iceland, my wife and I hiked all over Dimmuborgir, the home of the Yule lads. It was a maze of caves and canyons with pathways throughout, some more obvious than others. Various placards had information about them and their parents, but I don't recall anything about their cat.

Today is actually summer solstice https://twitter.com/BOM_Vic/status/1208492322721271809

It's not actually too bad here, we're hundreds of kilometres from the NSW fires, although they are so big that the smoke reached New Zealand. Rather weirdly, the smoke even reached Melbourne on Friday due to an inversion layer and unusual wind conditions. Our Bureau of Meteorology provided a video here https://twitter.com/BOM_Vic/status/1207815448571633664

My Sydney based colleagues on the other hand have had air conditions much like Delhi in India (and for similar reasons). In fact my one young colleague who travelled to Delhi for a few weeks probably had better air quality there after rain cleared up the air in Haryana and Delhi!

Oh dear. I knew you were halfway around the world! I am starting that slide into death called being over 65 and I am forgetting all sorts of things now. (I had to stare at my slippers for a full 90 seconds before I could remember the word. I knew they went on my feet though. Not that far gone yet.)

So yeah. Summer. We do something similar in about six months -- except it is light at 5 am and the sun sets about 9:45 pm. And never gets to 111.

I have been reading about your climate crisis challenges. My heart is breaking for you all.

There are few parts of the globe further from me than the Pacific North Wet

It was 44.1°C (111.4°F) here yesterday at 6pm and sunset wasn't until 8:42pm. Sunrise was at 5:55am.

But anyway, happy return of the light We have an excess, I'm willing to share.

Dude! Thank you! And Happy Return of the Light to you (if you are in a region where that remark brings a smile to your lips.... I am right next to Canada.... it is dead dark at 7:30 am and 5 pm....)

Thanks It works surprisingly well, doesn't it?

So good.
Next I expect them to build a room full of mounted Teddy Ruxpin heads singing choir songs in unison with 4 part harmonies.
