I just checked the weather in Ireland. We have wildly different ideas of what is freezing.

Even in Denmark they don't call it freezing unless its near 0C (32F).

Here, in winter, if it is sunny, it usually means it's even colder.

It has now reached 44.5c here

The evaporative air conditioning is not bad but it struggles a bit in this high heat, but the split system costs so much to run for long periods of time

Can't wait for the change to come through

Are you sure about that? Have you ever trudged through snow? Have you ever been outside in -20C? That's weather that kills people. Yeah, I know 44C kills people too.

A few days ago it was -34F at my son's house in Alamosa, Colorado when they got up to go to work. It was the coldest place in the nation. I'm really glad that I don't live there. Even the cars don't want to start at that temperature.

Here right now it is sunny and 38 degrees above zero.
