I am in London. It is nearly 90F. The Thames is half a mile away. These pictures are as good as rolling up my jeans and putting a knotted hanky on my head. Thank you.

Thanks Flamin' June!

Sorry to hear about the heat, I hate it when it gets like that. It's like that in Ontario during the summer.

So I suppose you don't wanna hear it was actually chilly here in British Columbia this morning

Hit 40C here yesterday (had the day off, Swiss National Day), forcast even higher this weekend. This includes the cooling factor of living next to the biggest lake in Western Europe.

I remember BC from my visit to Vancouver in '84. Total microclimate; February rest of Canada temperatures in the negatives (farenheit too ) while Vancouver was in 10-15C range, weird it was.

I just have to get back there again one day, fond memories of the place.

Hmmm, Sunday, farm, Swimming pool. Sounds a good plan to me.

Not intending to play one-upsmanship, but the hotest weather I've been in was the summer I spent in Saudi Arabia.

Daytime temperatures generally in the 110's Farenheit; sometimes in the 100's, once or twice in the 120's. We were about a mile from the coast, so the humidity was horendous. I'm so glad I worked in an air-conditioned trailer instead of out on the flight line.

Some of the more memorable heat/humidity moments:
- almost every time I stepped out of the AC (e.g., to walk from the car to the trailer), my glasses would instantly fog over. Was so bad I'd keep a second pair of glasses inside my shirt to keep the lenses warm so I could put on an unfogged pair of glasses.
- the night that I drove back to quarters about 12:30 am, ambient temperature is 94, and the fog is so thick I can't safely drive faster than 10mph.
- the day after our air-conditioned gym was packed up for the move from Dhahran to Al Kharj, was the first day I tried exercising outdoors over there; it was also the last day I tried exercising outdoors over there.

The funny thing about climates is that your tolerances tend to change based on the average temperatures where you live.

I grew up in Southern California. In my head, it was just starting to get warm at 80 deg. F. Now that I live in a cooler, rainier area, I walk around in t-shirt and shorts in weather that I would've been shivering in 10 years ago. I had one of those weird relevatory moments when I realized one day I was sweating and hot at 65F -- whoa! I've really acclimatized to the different temperatures.

It got over 100F in Portland last week...I thought I was going to die! At least there’s a lot less humidity here than in Auckland...it was unbearably hot and muggy there in the Summer.

Hey lookie! I haven't posted here in a good few months, so this is like a trip down memory lane for me.

It's finally raining here back in Ontario. This was the warmes and dryest summer I can remember. I think there is something odd with my biology. I am the only person I know who is very comfortable in the heat. To be honest, I crave it. The warmer the better, and the more humid, the better I sleep. I despise the winter. Ick. I need to move to a warmer climate I think.

HOT????

Hot, you say? HA! HAhahahahahahahaha!

Yes, I bite my thumb at you, sir!

Try 123 deg F IN THE FREAKIN SHADE!

You haven't experienced heat until you have lived in Phoenix. Yes, it's a dry heat. But it's the dry heat that sucks the moisture from your skin. People where it's hot and muggy have it easy, compared to AZ, where you will see people parking way out of there way just to get there car under what measley shade can be found.

Now I am going to grease myself up and pretend I am Jim Neighbors.

I know this is like real late in the game here, but This summer we in the midwest state of northern Illinois had 1 whole week of 90-102 degree temps....that's not too bad except for when the humidity is like 80 to 90% everyday, no kidding. The worst part of this story though, no air conditioning!
