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.
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!
Presently in Washington DC its 74 F or 23.7 C with a thunder storm to night.
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 :confused:. 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.
July 29--high today of 68f, low last night was 44f !!!!!! This is mid to late September weather not July or August weather.
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.
