This song reminded me of my least favorite thing about living in Arizona.

second wave of heatwave again .:confused: 31c outside . 27.4c indoors and no way listening to any movie or music in the THX cinema today even with air conditioner on . the system rack would put the temperature in the room over 31c . by night around 30c with hot warm weather .
my kitty cats are getting plenty of water-treats that is the biscuit treats in the bowl with water added so they lap up the water then have the treats .
next week maybe cloudy with some rain , oh , i welcome it .

Down south in Iberia we are supposed to be used to very hot summers, but this one is hideous. It´s not strange that we get 35 or more degrees during the day and for hours, what has changed is the fact that by night, temperatures do not get below 24 degrees (if you´re lucky!), hence, you do not rest well. When this happens for almost a month, you feel worn down all day long. Drough is the other issue, and considering the importance of agriculture, is a massive problem.

If this happens in a land used to dry and hot, I cannot really fathom how bad you´re enduring it up in the UK. Nothing over there is meant for sustained, massive heat. Stay safe Andy (and all the other guys up in the Islands!), heat kills and I have been a witness to it.

I'm up in the hills and it's not too bad here, 28C outside due to rise to 31C.

25.5C indoors (no aircon). London is currently 31C and due to rise to 34C, heat island effect I suppose.

It's only for a couple of day, Monday is a lot cooler and normal service resumes on Tuesday (rain, wind, a bit chilly in the shade or when the clouds go across the sun).

I´m not sure what is worse, the traffic or the massive amount of glass (reflective surface) and concrete (absorving surface). The lack of wind aggravates it even further and that does indeed decrease the quality of air.

Madrid or Barcelona are damn hell on Earth. Luckily I live in un-cool (and fire scorged!) Spain.

I long since gave up on trying to make sense of our stupid weather. You can have a balmy summer day then out of nowhere a hailstorm of biblical proportions. All four seasons in one day? Not unusual. Plus the classic pattern of great sunny weather on the weekdays when you're stuck in work and then cold and raining all weekend.

25.6C inside, humidity 60% I have had to deploy a fan.

Never had it warmer in this room except for summer before last when I was running a Krell KSA100. That just got silly.
