Damnit, we just have the first week of June, and during the last 8 days, we have constantly had temperatures over 30° Celsius, with peaks up to 34° in the shadow and more than 40° in the sun. Where should this end? What kind of temperature do we have to expect in July and August? I'm feeling more like in Spain than in Germany...no wait, in Spain they have less than 30°. In New York they have chilling 17°, in London 17°, too. In Miami they have 29°, in Fuerteventura it's 24°, in Amsterdam 19°.

What have we done that we deserve to get fried?

Greets from Frankfurt, 32° Celsius in the shadow. At least there is a little cloud in front of the sun at the moment.

During the last day, max temp was 38°C here and min was 18°C, including the night. But it's raining at the moment, so it's no longer that bad. But I had to paint a balcony elsewhere during the last week, and there were no clouds and up to 42°C most of the time. 15 minuntes outside, 10 inside, 15 out, 10 in... Phew! At least, I want a little wind, but no chance...

Very nice during holidays, but I'm in the middle of my final exams and it's very annoying to study already 10 days with temperatures between 25 and 30°.

I just keep my french windows (err, Freedom windows) open 24/7. It keeps the apartment stable at about 20°C, although I couldn't have a lie in this morning/lunchtime thanks to a loud thunderstorm.

The lawn is growing about 50cm per day though  Smile

It sure hasn't been hot here. It's June, and by now, we usually have some temperatures around 80F/27F, but it's been cold, damp and just miserable here the last two to three weeks-temps around 65 every day; rain most every day. I know, it's Cleveland, but still!

Well, today, we have glorious sunshine finally! And the forcast for the week is temperatures between around 74 and 80 all week. Summer has arrived!  Big thumbs up

We'll be glad to share our summer with you, Alpha 1. Like 20 per cent for you, would that be fine?

SOLD!!!! Big grin

Actually, last summer was a scorher here. We normally average only 3 days in a summer where temperatures hit 90F/32C. Last summer, we did so over 15 times, and most of the time, the temp was in the mid and upper 80's here.

Summer of 1988 was the worst we've had in my lifetime: 41 TIMES, did we break 80F/32C, hit an all-time record high of 104F/40C. Hit 100 4 times that summer, including the day of the company picnic, when it was 102F.

Alpha 1's not kidding- it has been unseasonable here & summer's just creeping in. This isn't an Ohio summer! Looking at the forecast for this week, the number of 80 degree days reminds me of the frequency of seeing "L10" in Delta's timetables in 2001!

Last weekend, it felt like October or November (ironically, on the last weekend in the school year), and the only good thing about the cool weather is that we didn't bake at school.

And they talk about Global Warming....  Big grin

Not been too bad in the Midlands this week either. We've had a few downpours and right now we're in the middle of a little thunderstorm, but over the last couple of days we've had great weather!

For me it is not summer if temperatures does not exceed 40C.

I remember having seen a public thermometer in downtown Tunis showing 52C by 12:30 p.m.!!! Can you resist it ?

Thunderstorm here as well. Talk about weird weather; when I had lunch, the sky was blue with a few clouds. By the end of lunch, some droplets began to fall. After about five minutes, it got dry again. Then, rain again, dry again, and now the sky is dark gray, with heavy rain and strong wind. I wonder how it'll be like in half an hour.

Preach it 4holer!

Here in Phoenix, its been routinely 105-108 F every day for the past few weeks. Makes spotting at DVT or PHX a real treat.

Rather hot here in Geneva too but I like it.

I'm loving the Cleveland weather this sunday. It so nice outside. Hmm now only if we could get rid of that lake so we won't have to deal with the humidity. Having the last two weeks feel like fall was nice though. Usually we'd be sweating half to death in school, but thats done with.  Smile

No such thing at too hot for me! It has been over 90F here in Portland for the last 4 days; 102 on Friday. Today is cloudy and we are expecting a cool 82F for the high. Fortunately, I have been working in the kitchen. Just give me some water, and I will gladly work when it is over 90!

Try 40c + and humidity @ around 90%.

It's winter in Sydney and we enjoyed at 20c day with lots of sun.

Man, you think 32C is bad?

Look at Bengal where it's been around 50C everyday for the last 3 weeks!! 1200 people have died because of it.

Now that's hot!!

In Canada, we get in the 50's sometimes, but only on the negative end of the spectrum  Big grin
