It is nice to have a proper summer but it gets a bit much sometimes and not comfortable at night. Thank god for air con in the car!

 

I must say though, I went to Texas in October 2008 , we covered Houston, Dallas and Fort Worth. It was 40 something celsius at times and when it was windy it was like someone holding a hair dryer on me! We don't know we're born lol

spent most of the !Removed! working inside my workshop machining up loads of timber.which basically is a !Removed! big shed.within 20 mins it looked like i had been standing under a shower.

havnt slept properly for 2 nights now,and getting pretty knackered,but may this weather continue.

 

the duke,

any recomendations for good pool cleaning chemicals,im sure i found something on ebay few years back and the seller said they could keep water crystal clear for months,but cant find the stuff now.i have a 3000ltr easy up pool.

It is a scorcher, its nice, but like you I would love to see a bit of moisture descend!

 

Hopefully it will stay but hopefully we get some balance!

I personally wish it was hotter but I love the heat and despise the cold, its warm yes but its summer and considering the ridiculously extended winter we had this year, im all for more sun.

 

To put things into perspective, my friend just got back from dubai and it was 50degrees+, thats when you literally dont go outside in the daytime. :D

oddly, that looks a picturesque location at the moment!

 

on the plus side, when the wet stuff does come down, you seem to be high enough that it will all run away!
