Re: Heatwave

Nice breeze today took away the worst of the heat. Not sure if it will be the same tomorrow but if so can mow again.
Some areas seem to be having it rough!

Everyone surviving?

Re: Heatwave

It started to bite today, but the worst is forecast for the weekend

The fact that an opinion has been widely held is no evidence whatever that it is not utterly absurd; indeed in view of the silliness of the majority of mankind, a widespread belief is more likely to be foolish than sensible.

Re: Heatwave

Norman, are you taking the recommended precautions like letting fans blow over bowls of ice, opening and closing windows and shutters as best, letting your harem of North African ladies fan you, going commando?

To know me is to love me Big Smile [:D]

I am surrounded by those who will come at the press of a button in case of need. And yes I have an aircom (its use explained to me by our very own nomoss...)

Not sure about the love bit ................

Our son phoned from Copenhagen yesterday, 18 to 20º there if they're lucky, and no summer yet.

Daughter is in Auckland, where they don't really have summers Sad [:(]

Re: Heatwave

We are on the third leg of our Sardinia, Sicily, Italy trip on our motorbike. It hit 39°C on the motorway coming up to Florence, 41°C predicted for today. We wear full gear and the only way I can survive is to freeze water and put it in my jacket. Worked really well until it stared to melt. The icey water began to pool where I am siting. A non too pleasant sensation to begin with.
