Some sweat when the heat is on

Friday morning last week Chloe picked up her 6th grade report card, and then later that afternoon she completed the set up for her 7th grade science fair. I know it is crazy, but I also know she will be super glad she did it this way by mid school year. Her experiment really is best done in hot weather anyhow: she is testing if roofing material colour influences heat retention, and by extension, 'urban heat island'. We certainly had some heat island today! Chloe couldn't do her 1pm reading because  both shingles had exceeded the 70'C maximum of her outdoor thermometers. Not a good day to not have air conditioning, I'm afraid.
