Love This Beautiful Summer Weather!

Mon Jul 14, 2003 9:14 am

Hi guys,

It was 29C here today, its been hot and sunny without a cloud in the sky for the past 4-5 days or more... Well its been good weather for quite alot of the summer so far really. Beautiful, sitting out in the garden, drinking a beer, just relaxing.... nothing beats it. Winter is so crap, thank god its summer, can't get enough of it Big grin.

Supposed to reach 32C here which i guess is over 90farenheit, not bad eh? Give us more sunny weather! Big grin

I hope the rest of you Brits and of course our friends in Europe are enjoying this wonderful heatwave, reminds you of the summer of 77 eh?  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

The weather was great for spotting at LHR yesterday and my flight back to DUS was really beautiful, I could see so much from the plane because there was not a single cloud on the way.

I hate to be a downer but if the earth heats up by 6 deg C, human life will be unsustainable. Apparently we're a third of the way there already.

So make the most of it while you can.

I hate to snow... errr, rain, on your parade, but there's nothing like a cold winter's day with lots of blue sky and sunshine! The snow glistens like a billion diamonds on those days, and makes for some superb aircraft photographs.  Big grin

Aye its lovely in Newcastle. I went to the beach yesterday, for:

a) the lovely weather, and for a dip in the North Sea (which was 18oC!)
b) to perv at my friends girlfriend, who has LOVELY knockers.

Lets hope it continues, up until I go to Magaluf a week on Friday!

Anyway, we had 26 degrees centigrade & a clear blue sky today - so at the moment I'm feeling like a shrimp who has spent a few hours too much on the BBQ  Insane

I am looking forward to tomorrow for round two, though. I ran into a rather nice girl, and we shared a bottle of white wine - I hope I can find her tomorrow too Big grin

My dad is currently in the UK. He told me that it was 31C this and the people were walking around wearing sweaters and jackets like it was a typical winter day!

To me, that sounded very strange.  Laugh out loud

It may be fun in the UK, but here, in Colorado, we haven't gotten any rain in July, and these bloody water restrictions are not helping the grass at all. Fire danger is high also, that means camping restrictions as well.

Like the summer of 76 and 90.
OK when not at work, come out with me on a vast expanse of a concrete hardstand at LHR around noon and see if you still love it though!

Ah yes. It has been quite beautiful here in Anchorage. Been in the upper 70's / lower 80's and clear almost everyday for the past 10 days or so. There have been a couple bad days, but you just cannot beat the clear skies, the beautiful scenery, and the cool ocean breeze in the afternoon... too bad we don't have many sandy beaches here, it'd be perfect.  Smile

30 degrees C here in Zurich, almost too hot. But the lake's about 24 degrees, there are no sandy beaches but you can't have everything...

The evening's great, the air still quite warm but not hot any more.

Yeah...I agree with all of those who are ready for fall. Balls to Indiana summers. Last Wednesday it was 80 degrees with 100% humidity and lightning storms to wake the dead. Things were flying across my mothers yard and one of her lawnchairs ended up scooting 300 meters away from where it started. I can't wait until I get back to San Francisco where it's "fall" almost year round.

It's been beautiful here in Boston this Summer. Last Summer was too hot with temps routinely above 35C. This Summer it's been clear with relatively low humidity and temps between 25 and 30. Perfect!

Just to put the British weather into context, we've been having temperatures of up to 33 C over the last few days. Now, the hottest day ever recorded in this country was 37.1 C (99F), so we've never hit the 100F marker.

We're pretty much as hot as it ever gets right now.

Graham I hope I'm intrepreting its been about 26-27 Celcius the right way because I've done the calculation. 26 take away 27 makes it -1 Celsius  Nuts
