That happened here too! My friends were stuck on the tracks in the middle of nowhere for half an hour in an un-air conditioned carriage!

I hate it Too hot for me and no air conditioning anywhere. None in the office so we are just opening the windows and using fans to circulate warm air and if most shops around here have air con they certainly aren't switching it on! I went into Manchester's Arndale centre on Tuesday lunchtime and nearly passed out with the heat. I don't have air con in my car either so it's like an oven after sitting in the sun all day. Nope, I'm not a happy bunny! The only good part is that I have trees back and front so my flat stays cool. Bring on winter I say!

Yeah, the Arndale is hot - even with the new high ceilings!! I guess all the glass just turns it into a greenhouse!!!

Don't you be jinxing our weather though! We get enough rain as it is most of the time!

Well its a bit cooler here today, thank goodness

The office has been unbearable all week...hot..sweaty...yucky 10 minutes after a shower i feel like i need to get back under it

We went to Conwy on Wednesday (lovely little coastal town in North Wales) to see the butterfly house. Well to say it was warm in there would be a HUGE under-statement I reckon i was in there all of 15 minutes, the sweat was running down my back, into my eyes..well it wasnt pleasant
But we did have a nice drink and lunch at a pub on the harbour
And hubbys car has a/c so at least the car journey was cool

How have the cats been dealing with all the heat ? Mine have hardly moved, sleeping all the time and waking up around 8'ish. They are not eating anything like their normal intake. The only thing they seem to want is milk and the occasional mouth full of biscuit

Was it the Pili Palas?! I can imagine it was sweltering!!!

My four have been pretty hot too! I bought them some granite chopping boards for them to lie on and have had the fan on - keeping the furries cool!

Yes i think thats what it was called. I waited outside for 2 hours because Pete wanted to take photos of the butterflies. He had to take his t-shirt off it was so hot in there When he came out he was covered in sweat, it was dripping of him. I must admit i was worried in case he got ill being in there so long, i just couldn't cope with the humidity

Lucky, lucky mogs When we have both been at work the best i could do for mine was to keep all the curtains drawn to try and keep the heat out.

I have no idea how Pete coped in there for so long?!! No wonder he was dripping - I'd have melted, I think!!

It helps with the curtains shut though, doesn't it?! Maybe your mogs would like chopping boards too! I just wish that my house wasn't south facing!! (not always, mind you! ) The cream curtains on the back to nothing to stop the heat!

I'd love to join you, but swap the warm fire for a cool fan!

I have been sitting in the garden reading Sharon Osbournes autobiography with Izzy spread out under my chair.

A couple of green finches have been nibbling on the peanuts on the bird feeder. It doesn't get much better

Its 80 degrees in the shade.

So what is the temp in Australia just now Danielle? My friend has been in Singapore since March and is now in Bondi and she has had her Mum send over her winter clothes because its 'only 28 degrees' What on earth has happened to my Scottish friend? Before she left she'd have been in the garden in her bikini in that heat!

right now? at 9.30pm friday night its 11C. Today the high it hit was 16C. I have to admit that today it was a nice winters day and we are having a 'mild' winter although its still cold. The average temperatures during the day are about 12-15C

I went to work this morning at 8am and my hands were like iceblocks. I can not stand this cold weather someone send it away

Ok thats pretty chilly when you have such hot summers! I hate the cold weather too it's so so wrong and should not be allowed. Oh well sending you warm vibes to get you through to the warm weather again. When will it start?

I can imagine - I went to a butterfly farm in stratford upon avon last autumn and it was seriously warm in there!

The worst thing when I'm at home is that Mosi keeps jumping onto my knee or cuddling up to me in bed - I really can't cope with that!

What's the formula or equivalent to F from C? Like, when it's 32F, it's at the freezing point.

I don't know what the temperature is now but it's really starting to affect people here at work

I've heard 3 of them arguing in the factory this afternoon, then the young office junior just rang me down and asked " Got any? " i knew fine well she meant which was did i have any post but i hate it when they speak like that on the phone to employees never mind customers, so being awkward i said " I beg your pardon!, got any what? ", she said post, i said " well if you'd said that in the first place i would have known! ".

Jumped up little madam!!

I can get pretty cranky when the temps are high and the skin is sweaty and sticky.

I don't have any idea what C's are in comparrison to Fs, but one thing I'm shocked about is that it gets cold in Australia. I thought you had pretty much the same weather as we have in Southern California.
