It's a hot, hot day
Need I say more? The
weather forecast is for a high of 35 (also known as 94). There's
relief here and there, though: food services director Mark Murdoch says
the temperature in his big walk-in freezer is a comfortable minus-20
Celsius. "We're hoping to sell lots of hot coffee on a day like this,"
Murdoch says, straight-faced.
