The Canícula has Arrived

Culture, Sunday Sol

The hottest days have arrived in Monterrey. This time of year is referred to as the canícula. It lasts from June 14th through August 24th with  consistent temperatures in the 90’s-100’s, not to mention the humidity.

Born and raised in California, I’m familiar with the hot dry summers of the Central Valley or some light humidity in Southern California. What I’m not used to is high temps AND what feels to me to be high humidity (though this is disputed by others!). This is the time of year if I am not in an air conditioned room, I am completely melting. While others look fine, I look like I’m going to dehydrate and pass out at any moment.

So the countdown to cooler temps begins…40 days to go! Thank goodness I have beach days in my near future.
