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

its been awful in midwest. we had about four days of cool weather and now its back to around 100, i work outside and its just awful right now. then before we know it it dips down to 10 below damn midwest crazy weather
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?
