I'm bearing up pretty well so far :D and refuse to complain ;) .


Thank god I've got AC in my new car though. My cat has used the weather as an excuse to sleep ALL DAY in the best shady bits in the garden and I kind of envy him as I am writing this from a non air conditioned and pretty stuffy office (in Cardiff, where it is currently around 31 degrees).

Coldest was -14C last winter :scared:

We get over 40 degrees fairly often in Australia. News Years Day this year in Sydney was probably the hottest i've experienced recently (over 40 degrees, don't have an exact number)

Mid 30's is nothing ;) :p

I much prefer it cold and wet to be honest. Its so bloody hot, and England just ins't suited for it.

Of course there is no such thing as climate change. :tape:

In an air conditioned cars and offices, no it isn't. ;)

When I was out in Perth a few years ago, everywhere was air conditioned and I was there in a baking January, but really it was fine because you knew you wouldn't be out in it for long.

The difference in the UK is that because such hot weather as this is the exception rather than the rule, many places remain air conditioning free and we all melt, slowly and surely, as the day goes on.

Things are changing for the better in that most new cars now, even cheap ones, haved AC, so that's good and I suppose a lot of modern offices do as well, but I work in an old building where there is no such luxury and I'm sure a lot of others are in the same sweaty boat as me this afternoon.

Still, like I said before, I'm really trying not to complain because our summer is too short as it is :D , but I have a horrible feeling that this post is gonna come across as a big whinge :lol:

I love the heat so am loving it atm, although NOT in my car,it has no A/C and my job revolves round driving alot, and where i live is all traffic so sitting in the car allday isnt too good atm, although saying that whenever im not at work im a happy bunny making the most of the sunshine, which is kinda handy as later in the year i will be moving to a hot country

The highest I remember is 40-something Celcius, with the Humidex.
The lowest I can remember is around -40 Celsius, with the wind factor. We have a pretty large array of temperatures. :lol:

In Portugal we often pass the 40C in the Summer. It is awful, believe me. The best is around 30C when you want to go to the beach. In the winter, we consider very cold when it passes to under zero degrees but that is also often, specially in the interior. Where I live, the temperatures range between 0C and 40C during all year.

i live in adelaide, this year in jan we had 4 straight day/nights with the temp hovering between 35C and 40C+!!!

thats right, the minimum night time temp for 4 straight days was 35!!!

reason: desert air had blown from the north and stopped over the city.

right now though, the weather is oh so cosy;

Hah, try go to Saudi or UAE this time of the year. I was there from January till July, and especially June and July was extremely hot, temperatures over 50 C :angel:

But u get used to it really. Sometimes i played some tennis while it was like 40-45 C. Not more than one hour though, otherwise you'd drop dead :devil:

Anyways, now i'm in Europe again, 35 C feels so coool :)

Of course there's climate change. It's that just humans aren't the cause of it. We've had Ice Ages and warmups before we were ever here. :rolleyes: We just happen to be here when it's happening, much like the wooly mammoth was during the last ice age. :o

I still think that isn't too hot. There usually is a low humidity with the heat extremes especially if it's coming behind a desert heat. It's going to be about 38 C today in Philadelphia. I feel bad for those that live in the Deep South in the states. There's nothing like an extreme humidity which makes it feel like 45 C. I can't stand the heat myself. Lovely invention those air conditioners are, well except for lessening the ozone part.

I really am use to it. Currently, it is 103 and rising. I would rather be in Arizona because its dry heat, but here the humidity is a killer.

I'm used to the heat with being in Florida so much but the weather that the UK is having at the moment is killing me! I need air conditioning and hardly anywhere has it! My house doesn't, where I work doesn't and so many other buildings that I go into. There is NO escape from the heat. It's horrid and uncomfortable. The UK really does have to sort out the fact that very few homes and businesses have air conditioning.

I mean it's great having this hot weather but I'd like some escape from it for a while!
