Today was quite pleasantly warm, about 90F in London.
But apparently Wednesday is going to be HOT… 37ºC, 38ºC, even 39ºC has been forecast. That’s 102ºF. I know everyone in other countries thinks it’s always rainy and/or foggy in London, but in recent years our climate seems to have shifted to somwhere near the Mediterranean. It has rained on precisely three days since the beginning of June, and two of those were only a sprinkling. My lawn resembles a very flat and straggly haystack.
Now I love hot weather. Quite possibly I was a lizard in a former life, but come on. We don’t do air conditioning over here. Ice is still rationed after WWII. The London Underground multiplies the street-level heat by at least a factor of three. Temperatures in three figures really shouldn’t be allowed, even if we do try to hide them under the Celsius label.
If Death Valley calls, tell it to collect its weather.
