we're having a heat wave ~ in the great white north!

Yikes! 98 degrees in Kuujjuaraapik and the only place to find relief is in and "along the shores of the Great Whale River".

Environment Canada meteorologist René Héroux said Kuujjuaraapik’s heat wave was extremely unusual. Héroux said the spike in temperatures were caused by a layer of hot air in the upper atmosphere, which was pushed north from the United States.

“It was very unusual, and will it happen again? Well, we can certainly say that it’s another indication climate change is no joke,” Héroux said.
