Hmm...I feel almost guilty for bringing this up again, but it isn't that old.

Yay, fifth! This is the first time I've had an odd position on the top ten list.

And happy late birthday, Arancaytar. Dikiyoba forgot to give these to you on Polaris:

Aw, what a cute terror from the vertiginous depths. :D

Wow. Did a day actually pass yesterday when I didn't post? I blame Myst and this awful heat. When I'm not at the computer or eating, I'm sleeping - losing all sense of time, because I keep the window shut most of the day. This is the kind of weather that gets you worried about global warming...

Tell me about it. It seems like it gets hotter every summer. On Wednesday it was 50 degrees C on the tube in London...

(That's 122 degrees F.)

I think this is really wonderful.

Dikiyoba went to a science camp in the coast redwoods of California. Incidently, it was nice and cool in the redwoods; cool enough to start every morning off in a sweatshirt. :P

FIFTY!

It's currently 33 here, but I'm quite sure it hasn't gone far above 40 this week yet (I haven't checked the thermometer regularly though). So I guess I'm glad I'm here and not in London. o_O

Above ground in London it was *only* about 34, but the tube is always much hotter than the outside temperature in summer, and usually colder in winter. People were standing at the tube station entrances saying "Don't do it, don't go down there."

I'm jealous... we've had heat indexes of something like 110 degrees Fahrenheit as of late, with humidity to match. You really think that 100% humidity means rain until you come here...

That said, since Wednesday we've been cooling down thanks to a bunch of incredibly intense storms that left over half the city without power. Happened again today... I'm lucky to be typing this.

Yay, we've been getting between 5-10C whatever that is in Fahrenheit. Its so warm. Infact, schools been cancelled occasionally because no-one can drive because the roads are just ice.

How in the world do the roads ice up at 5° C? The last time I checked, the freezing point of water was 0° C. :P

How does that work?

Btw, that's about 40-50F.

In (northern hemisphere) winter it's like this in the UK too (generally at 0 C). The tiniest bit of ice or two centimetres of snow, and the whole country grinds to a halt. Swedish winter regularly gets down to -20C and they hardly bat an eyelid.

Just a matter of getting used to it I suppose.

One could imitate the birds and move around so it's always summer (or winter, depending on preference. I certainly have enough of heat right now)...

Yup. World Health Organisation statistics show that you're more likely to suffer health problems due to hypothermia in the UK than in Siberia (where the average winter temperature is -25 degrees Celsius). The main reason is that nobody in Siberia is ever surprised to find that it's cold outside; the average Siberian wears 4.26 layers of clothing in winter, plus hats and gloves to cover all exposed skin.

As a transplanted North American, I'm amazed at how poorly prepared other countries seem to be for climatic extremes. In Europe air conditioning seems to be less widely accepted than homeopathy. People open windows, but this only helps so much, and windows don't have screens, so your house fills up with bugs. On the other hand central heating seems to be a novel concept in some places, especially Britain. So in the chilly wet weather that passes for winter, people wear sweaters indoors, and huddle around heaters, and feel cold as nobody does in Canadian blizzards.

We're not doing cool. We're doing pretty.

Possibly, but I gather it's based on a fairly big survey. :P

Yea, that's temperature during the day. It's colder than that at night but I'm not exactly bothering to look at a thermometer at night.

You're also using the official temperature taken above ground where there can be variations away from the measuring station that is located in a Stevenson box. It's possible to get a large range depending upon ground type, shade, altitude, etc.

Mt. Lemmon near Tucson, Arizona still has ice on the roads in late April. There are places that stay out of direct sunlight year round and don't melt even though the measured temperature is well above freezing.
