I have no idea why people moan about this type of weather.  Everything about it is positive!

Maybe we're just talking about professional "moaners" to be honest.  Long may it last!  Anyway...  Looks like next week is going to calm down and I'm going away to Naples to sort that issue out.

I love it too. Life is better when the Sun is out than depressing rain. Plus I love wearing shorts.

I have to say, my bedroom fan is probably one of the best purchases I could have made. Leave that thing running all night and it's like sleeping in a fridge. Ideal.

If It's over or under exactly 70.3 degree I'm distraught.

Speak in Celsius man!  You are welcome into the 20th Century. ;)

Ha, I have found a quick way to convert in my head so that I can speak to you all in a way you understand. 99% of Americans don't know if 30 degree (In Celsius) is hot or cold.

Celsius... what is this peasant nonsense..... next thing you'll say use the metric system..... 

 

Disgusting

Peasant?  PEASANT????  Mate...  Your bloody Fahrenheit nonsense is a peasant's revolt if I've ever witnessed one.  The metric system is infact the modernised version of something than never made sense.  Take your quarters, three thirds and three quarters and stick them up your bottom!

Even we in the UK managed to improve the Imperial system by measuring weight in stones and not the numerical nonsense that is pounds. :ph34r:

This heat with a small breeze is ideal. Would much rather this weather than a winters evening mind you.

Yeah...  That breeze we're getting this evening coupled with the heated bricks on the houses is amazing.  I absolutely love this time of year and it's a shame it isn't stable and constant here for the large part of the duration of summer.

Can see why people find it unbearable. It's because it rarely happens in a British summer that it is so obscenely hot. It's not something we're used to whereas in the southern European countries (Spain, Portugal, Greece etc) you get a GOOD summer and lengthy periods of prolonged sunshine and nice weather that we crave.

Plus we're British. We only moan because it's something we're good at doing xD

London isn't built for anything over 30° from public transport to the houses...  Infact as you can understand, the houses are built for the total opposite and are very insulated which if done correctly can actually be a benefit in heat.  The issue lies in the bricks overheating and creating a higher rate of temperature seeping in.  Air conditioning units in colder countries are also a lot more expensive than in warmer climate countries which means many people don't invest in something like that which may be used only for 1 week a year at times.

I personally don't feel that much heat at the temperatures we've been having lately and I love it.  Heat is what I've experienced in the hottest city in Europe which is Seville in Spain.  45°+ for most of the summer is terrible and energy sapping.  Another thing is humidity mixed with high temperatures like in Barcelona or the Valencia region for example...  Naples is the same!  That's worse because simple 30° heat can feel like double that and any movement you make means you break into a massive sweat flooding your clothes and feeling extremely sticky.

I won't even go into what it's like to sleep at night!  That's the only thing I dislike about higher temperatures.

Never understood why people always go 'urgh whingers, isn't even warm'! Then walk around in coats if the temperature drops below 20.....

I am just happy some people are using Celsius.

I've got to say that I start to wear some kind of jacket if it goes below 20° xD

Obviously not a coat though.

The weathers great but the country isn't built for it. If you go to a hot country there's aircon all over the gaff, on trains and buses.

On Sunday I was on the Central line for about an hour and if you forget a bottle of water you know about it on there, not like the modernised Met line with its aircon and Star Trek style carriages.
