74F @ 6 am...I was thinking of walking to work but not when it's this warm...I'd need another shower.

We have weather similar to GG's. Another triple digit heat index. I picked blueberries early this morning and ended up drenched in sweat.

You know that drenching rain TL got? Well it is supposed to be heading our way this weekend finally with a break in the heat wave. Cooler temps forecasted. One can only hope and pray.

We are back to 30C/86f today with blue skies and sunshine! It's all very un-English - and marvellous!

I know lots of you are finding your hot weather very uncomfortable, (and I do sympathise), but in Britain, even in summer, it is mostly grey and dull and wet. So please forgive my enthusiasm for a brief spell of lovely sunny weather. (It'll be over soon enough!)

Couldn't agree more. Though we're Brits aren't we supposed to complain about the weather .

It's a great excuse to kick the kids outside, fill the paddling pool, and just have a lazy day.

I just hate hot nights. Though for the past couple of nights I've ended up camping in my backyard. Just to cool off.

Hi CrystalWriter. Well, we Brits are well known for talking about the weather, but it seems to me from reading this thread, that plenty of non-Brits like to discuss it too!

You are the second person today who has told me they are camping out in their garden to keep cool at night.
