32ºC isn't that hot though, really. I mean, it's definitely uncomfortable, grass dies, people dehydrate, and the unhealthy ones (primarily, not solely) get heat stroke and stuff...

But it's not really worth media attention beyond a general disclaimer: It's hot out. Drink water.

JMO though.


But it is hot for the UK, people who live here are not used to temperatures this high in general. I guess if you live in Australia or Africa it would be considered the cooler end of hot but here in the UK these temperatures are as high as it gets most years.

Yeah I miss the snow. When I was a kid the snow would be so deep that it would fall over the top of my wellies, now we are lucky if we get a few inches ever few years :(

Ah cool. They look like the boots we had to wear while horseback riding in Ireland.

These are like the boots I have for winter.
I remeber growing up and there was loads more snow.
I grew up in the snow belt in upstate NY and still live in a large snowfall region.
There's a lot less snow these past few years.

For right now we've have rain, rain and more rain. Kinda odd.

The temps in the UK do seem pretty high.

Got to love gulf stream changes.

Shadow, where you from? I grew up in Buffalo, lived in Kenmore about 10 miles from Niagara Falls. When winter came, you knew it, and it stayed until spring. Out here in California, snow is in the local mountians and is for fun and playing. Never snows in the cities like Los Angeles, but we can see it up in our local mountians.

Greeney, I grew up just south of Syracuse. Grand ole Lake Effect snow.

Yeah I'd bet that ca is alot different then Buffalo in the winter.
The Winter here in NH is a bit colder then Upstate NY but there's a little bit less snow.
With the mountains it makes it rough here. Snows top to bottom....lol

Here in south Texas we're having not only a "100 plus degree" temperature but a drought to go along with it. Our pond got so low that our Bull got stuck in the remnant mud twice. The second time killed him. With a little luck, we got the pond dugout for free, filled for free from a neighbors water well, and bought a fairly cheap/good replacement bull.

I live on a farm so drought doesn't effect me. :lol: :D

Free water as well.




We do have droughts by the way...I know odd isn't it. Kent normally but most of the south has a drought most years. :lol: :lol: :lol:
