Anyone else hate the heat?

Postby jevs on Sun Jul 01, 2018 5:55 pm

I am melting here. Recorded 31 degrees in the car earlier. Don't mind a bit of sun provided it's 18-21 degrees but this is horrible.

Only thing keeping me going is cold beer and Pimms :D

Laid some stepping stones in the garden today, that was a bit silly. Otherwise, I like it, although my AC unit is a bit of a lifesaver at the moment. 18C in our bedroom at the moment.

Walking to the station at 7am to be sweating after a 10 minute walk s not nice.
Fixing sons bike today and I was just dripping wet.

Much prefer Spring and Autumn to Summer

Heat's OK(ish), it's humidity I find unbearable. Many years ago I went to Arizona in mid summer, 110 plus in the shade but virtually zero humidity. It was hot but not uncomfortably so, unlike Florida which was a mere 90 degrees but the 90 percent humidity made it unbearable.

My friends are visiting the mid west right now and they told me South Carolina where they were at the time, is blistering...

They were hoping that Wisconsin was going to be cooler and less humid..the entire Eastern seaboard is sweltering right now.......

DC is awful in summer. The humidity there is unbearable as the whole city was built on a swamp, literally. When I left DC I swore I'd never complain about the heat again but I still do. Would be so much happier on the shady side of a mountain in Vermont right now.

I struggle with hot weather, especially trying to sleep at night. But I don't begrudge it to those who like it...it's fairly rare. I'd like to spend the summer months in a colder climate, if I can afford to do it in my dotage.

Temporary room mate right now....her brother is going NYC in July and driving up to Canada.

I said NYC in July is awful..she said, nah it's not too bad..I was there once around that time and it wasn't as hot as 'ouston but it was still really miserable....

National news was featuring the entire eastern seaboard being really hot at the moment....

**** it's been almost 100 here since I got here a month ago, and before that too.....

no sign of a break and I won't be sad to get back to the Andes..........

:thup: :thup:

2 more weeks.............

When it's cold you can warm up, well usually, turn up heating, throw on a jumper etc. but when it's hot we're f*cked! our houses aren't built to stay cool, they're built to stay warm as most the year we're in a cooler climate. I'm not a fan of the heat, roll on autumn..

I enjoy the heat, that's why I live where I do. When I get too hot I can cool off in the pool, there are always lots of cold drinks in the fridge and we have air conditioning in the bedrooms so I can still sleep ok.

Admittedly, if I had to work in it I probably wouldn't enjoy it so much.

Yes, it's awful. I'd take cold any day of the week, it's easier to warm up than cool off.

Also I can sleep in the cold. . .
