100°F in Paris

We're having a couple of record-breaking hot days in Paris. Almost 38°C (100°F) for two days in a row. However, it's nothing like the terrible heat wave (canicule) during the first two weeks of August, 2003, when there were an estimated 15,000 heat-related deaths (mostly among the elderly).

Patrice and I feel very fortunate to have air conditioning in our apartment - a rarity in Paris because it's not often needed.
