We in Britian (and apparantly elsewhere) are basking in record high temperatures and I can honestly say its a miserable experience!

Heck its 70F in the middle of the night!

Its a vile, sweltering time...blokes wandering round town centres topless, their lumpen flesh a mixture of snowflake white and lobster red...sweat pouring off you morning noon and night...

Plus we have to put up with idiot local reporters going to Skegness or Cleethorpes and telling us how wonderful it all is. Watching people frolic in the sewage ridden waves!

Ah, the joys of our ever hotter, ever more chokingly polluted world!

Its bloody awful and I want to move to Norway!

both my work place and my flat are lofts, top floor, right under the roof, hottest place in the building, no A/C. So there's no place to cool down for me. But it was worse a few weeks ago. Now it's 'only' 32C, then it was 35.

Our trains are all running late cos they think the tracks will buckle in the heat...

Our trains also run late when it snows, rains, is windy, if there are leaves on the line, or if its a bit cloudy...

Our country is a bit rubbish. :)

don't you think it would be better to have just one window open (to let fresh air in) and keep the others closed so not too much warmth can get in? i mean, that's always worked for me at home where it's nice and cool inside..

At night I want everything open so that the room can cool down. I tried closing the windows during the day, but that's unbearable. I live on the top floor, I need to get the warmth out! All the heat from the house ends up in my room. At least when there's a bit of wind, it's bearable.

And fresh air from where, Maeike?

i've been travelling to europe since the late 60's and i never understood why europeans were adverse to fans. i realize that central air can be expensive but small fans (not even ones that oscillate) were quite cheap and i thouhgt most people would have them but they didn't. i remember once in the early 70's, going to italy (taranto) and staying at an inn. i didn't expect them to have air conditioning but i thought they'd at least have fans in the rooms but they didn't. so i went out and bought one and i donated it to the inn when i left.

i think there are two primary reasons:

the first being that europe has been (and still is) more environmentally-conscious than any other continent hence the reason that coal ovens, for example, are still being used. central air and even the electricity used for fans is not a necessity so most of you just tolerate the heat just as you do your tepid water pressure. haha ;)

the second is that aside from spain, portugal, france, italy and those countries that straddle the mediterranean, most of europe has moderate to frigid weather. a warm summer day in scotland, for example, would be about 65F. in other words, the sun is a stranger to most of you so when you see it, and especially an abundance of it, you don't quite know how to react. my friends in edinburgh will never visit america during the summer because of the heat but will avoid travelling here in the winter time as well because it's too cold.

coal ovens? Never seen those!

You're right that in our climate, getting AC is a waste of energy (office buildings excepted). It's not worth getting it for those few days of really hot weather. Just like lots of houses in warm regions don't have heating.

The thing is, you can keep houses cool by designing them properly. In the US, the houses have a wooden construction. If you want a cool house, it has to be massive, stone, brick....Think of poorer regions with very hot climates, Turkey, Middle East, etc.

"This is Britain... and everything's alright... everything's alright... it's okay...........it's FINE."

Yeah I don't understand this incessant moaning people have with the hot weather, it's a lot easier to cool down than it is to heat yourself up... I forecast in about Novermber time we will see a "it's so bloody cold" thread.

However I must agree on the "British people in hot weather" mentality.

The shirtlessness. No need for it at all. The fat men with their girth hanging over their ill fitting shorts, displaying their manbreasts and crevices for all to see, and the other extreme, the scrawny pasty white kids, the heroin addicts that look like refugees that havent eaten for years.

On the plus side, it brings out the scantily clad lasses!

You can also sit outside on the patio, listen to jazz and just generally chill out...

I like the winter days when you need a hot water bottle in bed, when you can see your breath in the air, your fingers raw with cold...roasting chestnuts on an open fire, with frost gathering on the window pane...

Some people like it unbearably hot, fine fine fine...lap it up! :p ;)

I can't stand the heat. Last month the temperature would scorch up to 115 F. Coming home from 6 hours of summer school and then driving out in the middle of nowhere to instruct little kids how to play tennis at 5 pm was not my ideal summer.

But now that summer is coming to and end, the temperature isn't all that bad. I'm glad that's all over with.

sorry. i have to remind myself to elaborate more on my posts. :o chris ba was saying he likes rain and snow. my experience in several trips to the uk and ireland is that they really have just 2 seasons. rain and less rain. ;) they rarely get snow in the uk, so they don't know harsh winters (i can tell you about those because my back still aches from all the shovelling). heat is unusual hence the fact that practically the whole country is overwhelmed by the current heat wave. so, in my opinion, and based on what my friends gripe about that actually live in the uk, they only have 2 seasons.

i still sleep with my thick winter duvet- i'm soo used to it- no matter how hot it is i need my duvet over me to keep me cosy- i don't think i've ever slept with it when i'm at home-ever!!!

It's 10 pm, it's still 32 here in my room. I don't think I'll sleep with a duvet ;)

Yes today was hotter...

Its so hot as I speak (10.15PM) that I am actually wearing a pair of Manchester City shorts...I NEVER wear shorts!

Its not a pretty sight...my legs look like a pair of withered silver birch trees... :eek:

Dracula had more colour.

But its so hot, I just don't care!
