Oh. In that case, then, do come to the South. It was only a mellow 87F/30C today. ahdn_john_08_gif

*looks at weather forecast for Vegas (excluding Thursday which is lovely and low by Vegas standards)* Hey, Ron, mind if I join you in nice cool Kent? Or maybe I’ll pay a visit to the icebox known as North Carolina...

Oops, just realized that was a Fiddy. It was intended for RN's post.

Remember, RN is dealing with this heat without an air conditioner. Do you two have a/c in Vegas and NC? I'm a wimp; I couldn't live without air conditioning.

I do have ice cream on the way.  Pizza, ice cream & coke.  The ice cream's the important bit though.

Zion was fun (if not also extremely hot), and now we're in some other place before passing into somewhere else (I'm very informed about the happenings of this vacation as you can tella-hard-days-night-george-10).

Saw this cute sign and thought of Beatles.

And I also took a picture of an actual beetle that was in our car.

None of Zion though. I have interesting picture priorities.

Well, we didn't quite break the record today. We reached 38.1C/100.58F, making it the hottest July day ever, and the second hottest day on record.

Spent most of the day sans clothing (apart from the socks, of course) dozing on the sofa 'cause I couldn't sleep last night. Did make it down the road to top-up interweb and get liquid for drinking though.

Luckily we expect around a 10C drop tomorrow.

I'm really not built for hot weather.

When I went to Walt Disney World, I spent the whole time photographing the flowers and landscaping generally. So much attention to detail and upkeep with all those plants. People go to WDW for the rides and such, but I was busy appreciating the atmosphere and surrounding-bits.

Yeah we just went to the North side of the Grand Canyon today!

I had never seen buffalo irl before this, and I didn't expect to, so this was a cool surprise.

I have some canyon pics, but they don't really do the canyon justice, and these were more interesting.

I’m going to take this weekend to go and visit my family, which should be fun. A lot of my family members are musicians, so whenever we visit we get together and try to figure out whatever song(s) and play it for the rest of the family. Last time we did a few Beatles songs, so hopefully that’ll work out again.

@Kaniffee cool pics! We didn’t have quite so many trees on the south rim, and we didn’t see any buffalo, but we did see some elk.

Dozed off this afternoon while watching the telebox. Woke up and it seemed I'd taken off my glasses at some stage since they were on the coffee table and not my face. Picked them up and put them on, only corrected half my vision. Took them off and looked at them. Left lens has popped out. Been looking around the sofa, haven't found it yet.

So, two pairs of glasses, and I have been using the older pair (though not as good as the newer because my sight is worse) because an arm broke off the newer, and now the older pair has only one lens unless I can find the cranny it's slipped into. Probably buried somewhere in the gubbins of the sofa - it's a proper sofa bed, folds out to reveal a full-size metal-framed and sprung double bed with mattress. So, looks like I'm either going to have to pull the bed - which is rigmarole, coffee table has to be moved out the room, some other bits shifted - or I'm off to get new glasses (luckily, I get the lenses free, and have a choice of free frames, or ones you can get reductions on). My opticians have been writing a while telling me I'm overdue, by a year or - more likely - two, an eye test, so there's that...

Still...

Yesterday , a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 up there, I commented:

Well, we didn't quite break the record today. We reached 38.1C/100.58F, making it the hottest July day ever, and the second hottest day on record.

The previous hottest day on, 38.5C/101.3F, was recorded 10 August 2003 near Faversham in Kent, and I bet you can guess what I'm about to say by the word "previous". The high temperature recorded yesterday was taken by a Stevenson screen in Cambridge at The National Institute of Agricultural Botany (NIAB). Not all Stevenson screens are checked at the same time - many are only checked every four weeks, Faversham was only confirmed in September 2003, though we knew 38.1C had been reached elsewhere on the day.

Again, in Cambridge, at Cambridge University Botanic Garden, when the weather station there was checked this morning, they had 38.7C/101.66F. It is a provisional figure, they need to check the instruments and the Stevenson screen, but it seems the record was broken.

The most swelteringest day ever.

Yes, but you have air conditioning indoors in Las Vegas, @50yearslate, and we don't. Me, I spend as little time outdoors as I can. Indoors there, a/c; indoors here, no a/c.

Also, my flat is one room wide - roughly same-sized front room and bedroom at opposite ends of hall, bathroom and kitchen off hall. And look at how much of the outside wall is window:

AND THEY ARE AFTERNOON FECKING WINDOWS.

I get it from noon to sunset, the hottest half of the day.

And, no, the buildings opposite don't help with any shade because...

Still, not being overlooked does allow you not to worry about how you're dressed...

...or not.

I'll swap my non-a/c flat for your a/c hotel room anytime.

I always like the one-upmanship whenever it comes to western Europe (especially) experiencing heatwaves. 

Our buildings are built for retaining heat as the climate is cool most times, with the average temperature in Ireland being 10°C (50 F). When the weather shoots towards 30°C (86°F), the place gets hot and stays hot. No one I know has air conditioning in their house because you might need it for 2 or 3 weeks in the year- so it's not financially worth it.

 

You would all be complaining too if it was roasting outside, roasting inside and there was no salvation (a lot of the public swimming pools are indoors too, so no relief there). 

 

Anyways, I escaped Frankfurt yesterday which was at 39°C (102°F yet surprisingly very walkable) and am back in beautiful temperate oceanic Ireland where our high today was 19°C (66°F).

You should try the subtropical summer...It is said that the sensible temperature rose to 46C/114.8F in our city yesterday blue-meanieImagine the heat!

Luckily we’re blessed with air conditioners, don’t know how to endure with the weather without them...
