It was a lovely warm day so on the way home from work I went for a hike in QE Park and when I got home at 9pm my house was still a warm, natural 22 degrees inside. So I’m still in shorts and will be til I go to bed. The temperature outside has dropped a little, but you could still spend the night sleeping on the ground naked with the hedgehogs if you so chose. This isn’t Tuktoyaktuk people.
My famous neighbours are using their wood burner tonight and smoking it up like nobody’s business, like they had some inate right to pollute, and it’s the middle of frickin’ summer. Someone was burning off in Paekakariki too. Coal down near the Tilley Road entrance.
What just kind of mindset do these people have? Do their neighbours get no relief at anytime of year from their incessant burning? It’s time to ban the use of wood burning stoves just like Hampstead, Quebec. There they require their removal as well. What sensible legislation they have in Hampstead. Instead here in Kapiti I’m left at the mercy of my neighbours and the wind.
