    yeah we had one great week in mid-July, thankfully I had that week off for my birthday

    But it really has been crap since then. Right now it's pouring with rain and about 16 degrees (61 F in old money)

    over 100 degrees is pretty toasty though. The hottest temps recorded in the UK were last year when it hit exactly 100 (37) in London. There was a heatwave across much of the UK and France for about 3 weeks, and everyone started to get pretty sick of it in the end. It killed a lot of elderly people too. I think the problem over here is that we're just not used to those kind of temperatures for a sustained period. Same thing happens when a few flakes of snow fall in the winter - the whole country grinds to a halt

    Here is South Florida, it's always a heat wave
    I work outside too (UPS driver) and it is pure hell for about 9 months out of the year. The "feels like" temps are normally around 100 F or higher.
    I really look forward to the cloudy days....at least the sun is not frying you in your own sweat

    But I don't think I could stand the heat I felt recently in Vegas. I got off the plane at 8:30 pm, and the temp outside was a balmy 117 F. It was so hot it literally took my breath away when the doors opened to the outside. How could anybody deal with that on a daily basis?

    No, it hasn't. In fact my door and door jam are so swollen with the heat and humidity that I can't lock the thing. The lock doesn't line up.
