Scorchio 18:44 - Jul 31 with 1737 viewsOldsmoker

3rd hottest day on record apparently - at Heathrow airport.
In Bristol it was warm with a breeze - perfect.
This evening feels like the heat will last till about 10.
G&T's till dusk then.
What's it been like in Suffolk?

Beautiful day here in Bath, although we did have a slight shower about an hour ago.

You spent the day in the bath?
You really need to get out more Shawsey.
Oh, Lockdown. Sorry.

No lockdown for me. I had a half day today, so enjoyed a bit of gardening. Got the shed roof re- felted and a good clear out of said shed.

I was tempted to go for a stroll on Weston-Super-Mare prom this evening.
Takes no time to drive from Bristol.
I used to then take the route over to Cheddar and do a fast hill-climb up the gorge and then onto Bristol via Chew valley and Dundry. I haven't got the car for it now, just a 1.4l slow lane hogger.

Sunny here in South Wales until about 2-3. Not especially warm though. Been down the beach this afternoon with the kids and body boards. The surf was awsome, but it wasn't warm. We've been about 17 degrees with a stif breeze on top, so not even close to scorchio.

I'm more than happy to blame the Tories for the accident of geography. They screw everything else up, so why not!

Still, at least they're professional eh?

Often pop down to Weston on a sunny weekend. It gets a lot of bad press, but always enjoyed the walks.

I've lost count of the times I'v been there for an evening drink but I can count on one hand the Sun setting on the sea with the lightbulb effect. It always seems to be hazy/cloudy. It might be the pollution from Wales.

It was hot just over the border this side.

How does the weather seem to know when it's in Wales?

Well it looks like a duck, it sounds like a duck. Nope, dunno what it is.

Wonderful isn't it - if only it would stay warm for a prolonged period. Much better to get out and enjoy the great weather when the sun is shining.

It's not wonderful - it's too hot.

Stop being so happy. It makes me uncomfortable.

I actually pulled over to take a photo of the dashboard temperature gauge which was still showing 41c* after a few minutes driving, and had only dropped to 40c when I got to my destination, admittedly only a journey from West to East Lewisham.

* I am used to it being +2 compared to official temp.

This is the highest I've seen on my cars in UK, my previous car, with a much more accurate temperature gauge, once recorded 43c in Aranjuez, just South of Madrid. In fact that trip we had a week of 40c+.

Can't think of one good thing to ever have come out of Wales.

30C even here in N. Yorks, which is rare. Mowed 2 lawns & had a nice kip in the sun unencumbered by annoying clothes. Followed by an unforecast cracking thunderstorm & deluge just finished - which is how come I'm sitting at my desk instead of being outside watering for an hour as I thought I'd have to!

Felt bistering in London today as I worked 12 1/2 hours outside in it. I sweat all the time anyway, but my blue T shirt haad large white salt marks covering it by the time I finished.
Got home at 10-30 PM and can look forward to leaving home at 7-30 in the morning to do it all again.

No idea when I began here, was a very long time ago. Previously known as Spirit_of_81. Love cheese, hate the colour of it, this is why it requires some blue in it.

Absolutely SCORCHIO down here in Worthing on the South Coast. Working outside it was almost unbearable.
