    I know it’s uncommon for you, but burrrrrrrrrrr. 😉 That’s how hot it was here in the middle of the night last night. It’s 106f right now. Do you all enjoy the higher temps or is it like here when it rains, no one knows how to deal with it?

    Are those flowers related to yesterday’s purple ones? Similar with the bells I guess. I just love that red/orange color.

      No one has a clue. Not one little clue. And yeah, smartarse, but you have the means to mitigate the horror. We wouldn’t know a home air conditioning unit if it sat up an bit us. All I’ve got is an office fan.
      One thing though, it’s been building for a few days now. It means the shower unit doesn’t need to heat the water at all and can drive a good bit more pressure.

      The flowers are Red Hot Poker (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kniphofia), bloody apt I thought. 😀 😀

        Ya, at least we have relief inside most places here. When I lived in New England where things are generally cooler and structures are older so not equipped with air it was rough during heat waves. The humidity made it worse. The typical response here when someone says it’s hot is, “Yes, but at least it’s a dry heat.” Somehow 106 with 20% humidity is not as bad as 90 with 100% humidity. Good bbq weather though. 🙂

    That’s pretty warm for Ireland… We have had a very pleasant summer so far in the Upper Midwest, but the West has been boiling over.

      Yeppers, pretty warm alright. A good bit more than usual.

      You really won’t hear much complaints though. Last year would have caused profound famine not so many years ago. In was not just wet and cold it was also dark.

    I’ll start feeling sorry when it gets up in the 40’s for you!

      Ah yeah, but for us it’s like a flash flood in the Sahara. You know people will die from this. Not so much here mind you. But in the UK and France hot spells like this always do.

    Meh. Warm, but not really hot. 😉 And I have to ask…..how is your humidity? That really can make it so much more oppressive.

    I’ll admit that would be uncomfortable without some AC.
