    Hamburg is hot hot hot

    24 degrees celsius now. I must say I hate the heat and I shouldn't give out because every one else seems to love it. It's the humidity that gets to me. I really am a winter person :-)

    Sitting here with all the windows open and a floor standing fan blowing directly at and feeling very uncomfortable.......my phone tells me it's 24c.
    The forecast says tomorrow is going to be hotter.
    I thought I knew more than this until I opened my mouth

    Maybe the heat will shake off any left-over effects from Easter. Besides, the heatwave might not last. Though I remember 1975, we're nowhere near that yet.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    It was 76 I believe.

    Had a drought, the night I went to sleep on the beach it rained...............first rain for months.

    Trust me, the hottest longest summer in my lifetime was 76 no doubt about it. Record breaking heatwave
    No idea what 75 was like.

    Re: Hamburg is hot hot hot

    I remember '76. I was 12. The perfect age for it.

    31 here today. Hampton waterworks are just down the road and they got today's record at nearly 33 I think.

    When I got my home rebuilt I tried to take account of global warming by designing a place that would make it easy for cooler air to pool downstairs and provide a place to sleep without needing air con if it gets too hot upstairs.

    The test may come soon...
    The crowd: "Yes! We are all individuals!"
    Lone voice: "I'm not."

    I remember it as 76 too, I wasn't quite six but I remember the standpipes and crispy brown grass very clearly.

    I think I remember one really hot summer in Ireland when I was about 7 or 8. I remember my mom picking us up after school and we would go to the beach and all the other moms and kids were there and we salad sandwiches and crisps and diluted orange. No money for takeaways in them days :-)

    It was definitely '76. My first ever job after leaving school (that's how remember the year for certain) was working in a Petrol Station, jerking petrol (yes, they really used to have people who did that for you). There was also a fuel shortage & one of our tanks was empty, so we had to fill it with water, even in a drought, to expel the gases so as to eliminate the explosion factor.
