    Hoffy, a friend and his wife and baby daughter spent last weekend at Barmera and Lake Bonney. It hailed then snowed there (!) Hell's bells, last October I was sweltering in 36°c heat on the shores of Lake Bonney (and later came away with absolutely gob-smacking, arse-spanking, kick-ass beautiful pics...)

    It's unbearably hot in Northern Switzerland at the moment, today in Basel it could get as hot as 38c.

    It's not much better in central Switzerland. Up in the mountains it's been 30-ish. Perfect weather for Sunny 16

    I would never have imagined or known that Switzerland could get to 38°c! Heavens, it's many, many moons ago since I visited (1989): sunny and crisp from memory. But now... well, 38°c is along the eastern seaboard of Australia in Spring and in toward the outback; atomisers are great for squirting each other as a cool-off!

    We actually made it up to 39 yesterday! In a country with no air con it is not fun. We should be a bit cooler for a few days but then we have 40 forecast for the end of next week . I'm praying to the weather gods not to make that happen.

    These temperatures are a bit unusual here, it is the hottest it has been in my 16 years in the country and we are getting very close to the highest ever recorded temperatures.

    Here in Houston, Texas it's been hot and humid-typical summer weather. We've been getting a good amount of rain the past 2 months or so. And that's a good thing, 'cause that means there's no drought, or at least no extreme drought. This spring and summer have had lots of overcast skies-not the best lighting for photography most of the time.

    but many still have a hot lunch, even if it's 40C+

    The Mrs wants to go somewhere (maybe NY) for a "White Christmas". I'm not as enthusiastic!

    Tell me about it, my mum's parents were both British born, and their side of the family still do the gamut of hot-served roast dead-things when all you want is ice-cream. My missus' family also do that too, so there's no escape for me.

    The most climate-appropriate xmas lunch I ever had was at an ex's mum's place, prawns and lobster and nibbles in a shady garden in the hills.
    Well that, and when I was 10 I had xmas in Finland, we went to the Father Christmas village on the arctic circle and ate Reindeer stew in a Reindeer-skin hut, and it was -35 outside...
    An awful lot of electrons were terribly inconvenienced in the making of this post.

    f/64 and be there.
