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?
SniGG, be glad that you dont live in Winnipeg, Canada like I do. this past week was +35-40C and in winter we get -30-40C with out the windchill some times. You know its stupidly cold out when you have your eye freeze shut after about 10mins out side.
Dont know how I missed this post but, Hot as hell here. Seen no rain in probably 2 weeks. Todays high 97F, heat index 105f. Been like this for that two weeks. We are now in a official drought. Theres suppose to be a cool front coming in tonight, down to hi 80's tomorrow. Hope it does.
