    Default Heatwave - I'm meeelting!!

    This damn british heatwave has just come out of nowhere. It's awful. And when we get heatwaves here in Britain, it ends up being hotter than Barcelona, or New Delhi. It doesn't help the fact my room gets hot and stuffy, which in turn heats up my computer causing it to crash. Heck, it's raining right now (thunder and lightning too. It's a summer storm), but it's still incredibly warm.

    heat wave? (check thermometer - 12 degrees, before going to put another baron the fire)

    It is average here, up on about 52 degrees latitude.

    It shouldn't be like this though, where i am....i live in a little village called Shepley, near Huddersfield, and the hottest it ever gets when there is a heatwave is 25C, which is slightly acceptable, but 30C with all this humidity....i now know what my army men feel like when i melt them in the microwave...

    Only 35C today, unseasonably cool for here, should be above 40 by this time. When it gets to 45 it starts to hurt.

    You got hail? It tried to hail here, but failed, so i was content with leaving all the windows open while it rained.

    Go to where I am run around in 40lbs of armor and ammunition. Most of our Humvees don't have A/C and opening the armored windows defeats the purpose of their being armored.

    The worst thing is using the porta johns, like a freaking sauna.

    I know you guys didn't get to climatize slowly from winter to hot like I had to which is why it's so unbearable. Take it easy and go to the pool or something.

    Pool. Bleuch. Too much chlorine. And anyway, they'll be packed with fat people and screaming kids on days like this.

    The hail was almost like golfballs, maybe all this climate change stuff is really happening, monsoons may become common in summer for the UK.

    It's hot in Holland as well, but I kind of like it, it's usually cloudy and boring weather, so the sun is great.

    I can't handle this heat, I am literally dripping with sweat, it is disgusting. You have a bath and by the time you are dry and got new clothes on again, you feel all muggy, sweaty and horrible. Not nice, I hate the summer, roll on the winter I say.

    Yep, I hate the heat. You can put on as many layers as you need in the winter, but there are only so many you can take off in the summer before you get arrested.

    Sweat causes me to itch too, so I've been scratching myself all day. Not nice.

    I hate any hot night, and always end up sweaty, but last night was the worst hot night of my life. I couldn't get to sleep, because my room is always the hottest stuffiest room in the house when it's warm, and when i woke up at about 10:30 this morning, i quite literally had to peel myself off the bed, and had to replace the sheets, because they were soaked with sweat, which ended up making them smell of B-O.

    There are times I wish they’d just ban everything- baccy and beer, burgers and bangers, and all the rest- once and for all. Instead, they creep forward one apparently tiny step at a time. It’s like being executed with a bacon slicer.
