Same here, according to our weather service, this is the hottest july ever measured in the Netherlands. I'm getting kind of fed up with this hot weather, kinda spoils all the things I wanted to do in my weeks off because you just tire after being outside for a couple of hours.

Don't forget to drink plenty of water.

A kingdom for a cool breeze. I don't know what's worse, days or nights.

120 degrees may have tied state record
20 July 2006
Pierre, South Dakota (AP) -- Saturday's statewide high temperature that unofficially tied a South Dakota record set 70 years earlier is likely to stand, a National Weather Service employee says.

Exceptionally steamy weather that struck the state last weekend was the result of a downdraft of high pressure from the Rocky Mountains, pushing the thermometer to a sultry 120 degrees at Usta, in cattle ranch country about 27 miles northwest of Faith.

"It was taken at one of our official observer sites, with our equipment, so it's not like somebody had a thermometer sitting in the sun or on top of pavement or atop their house where it gets really heated," says Susan Sanders, NWS warning coordination meteorologist at Rapid City.

It was 108 in one part of our fair state this past weekend. And 104 here in Portland. This is the Pacific NORTHWEST, people. No excuse for this heat...Today, a cool 88 degrees F.

It's been utterly vile now here for weeks in good old blighty. The heat is ridiculous and I can't stand it any more, I wasnt made for these kind of temperatures. I permanently feel like someone has sewn cows warm tongues to the inside of my clothing...eerrww.

Well,we've exceeded the point of no return, I suppose. If people won't kill themself by war (or smoking), global warming will do the rest. The cockroaches will have to douse the light.

So let's have fun in the sun.

Hahaha! Aspy, I'm trying to decide whether you're a poet or a pervert...? Yup - you're definitely both! What a great image! And there's me assuming you'd be tongued to death by your new boyfriend, when it was the broiling bovines all along...

Fine time for my frontal A/C unit to shit the bed! Only so much can be expected of the rear alone! :mrgreen:

But "The Pond" is shared by both myself and Aspy -- I on the one side, she on the other -- but it's the source of humidity for both and Boston never lacks for "watery air", compounding the 88°F/31.111°C temps. And New England is, thus far, the "arctic zone" of the mainland US :!:

It was so hot today that Burger King was saying, if you want it your way, cook it yourself.


It was so hot up in Chappaqua Bill Clinton got in bed with Hillary just for the chills.

I can't stand it too. So would you please dance aspy. Better go outside so the indian gods can see you. If that won't help, Liverpool's jailhouse is at least air conditioned...I hope.

37 tomorrow.
