Here on Sat, Sun and bloody Monday near the Blackhole Tunnel I got 33C and I was tiling my sister in law bath room, I did get heat stroke.
Most of Bloody Monday a sat under the shower I have in the garden, which I use for chemical spills.
Drank gallons of water with a stinker of a headache, and then this morning it according to the Local New be hotter today.
I say roll on lock down again, less pollution and maybe reduced temperatures. A less noise from the A13 main route to the city of death.

Went for a walk even earlier this morning with the sun lower and more shade from trees. Windows and doors open at home. It means listening at lower volume, but a price worth paying. The patio windows facing south are of benefit in the winter but not now. Will be in the garden with headphones later this afternoon when there will be some shade. Have noticed that all electrical components are a lot warmer to touch now, with the exception of the A80s where the heat wave has had no effect.

I set a course just east of Lyra
And northwest of Pegasus
Flew into the light of Deneb
Sailed across the Milky Way
On my ship, the Rocinante
Wheeling through the galaxies
Headed for the heart of Cygnus
Headlong into mystery
The x-ray is her siren song
My ship cannot resist her long
Nearer to my deadly goal
Until the black hole
Gains control

RIP Doc

Stop moaning about the weather , it will be cold ,rainy and dark soon enough .

The beauty at British weather is that in the space of 1 year you'll experience all nature as to give .

Not really moaning, just finding that I have to make adjustments. I find heat in this country more opressive than abroad.

The heat actually makes me physically sick, and I have to be very careful. The temp here at the moment (according to Alexa) is 80Fo/27Co and it's thundering.

I love 10C and below, 15c for me is to warm and I wear sandals and short all year. Spent childhood in the mountains of Scotland.
So London humid air and heat is no good for me I hate love winter but never cold enough. My work often had me working at -20C and sometimes at -50C. So a London winters day at 5C is summer for me.

Climate change is the real issue. I have customers in Sweden that say the permafrost has virtually gone in the north of the country. So many other similar examples around the globe
