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 :rolleyes:

Here is South Florida, it's always a heat wave :eek:
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 :rolleyes:

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.

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.

50 is perfect for working, i would take 50F all year round because i work outside, its cool enough to wear protective pants and shirts yet it takes a lot to sweat in that weather.
