Default summer's here

Got up this morning to thick mist, no more than 20 ft visibility across the field. normally to the horizon. By 2 pm the car thermometer was reading 44c (111f) moving at over 80 Kph (55mph)
Tonight, the sun is setting 8.15 local, 6.15 pm GMT, youll have to work out your own zones) and its so wet that dry clothing on the washing line is getting damp again.
It impossible to be indoors without A/C running, god knows how the natives cope without it

The pool is a solid 32c (89F). FINALLY its warm enough for me to get into =D> =D>

Dont get me wrong, I moved here for the heat and I love it, but it wouldnt hurt if there was a bit less hoomidity :roll: 8) 8) 8)

Wow Bob , I worked in 42C and it dam near killed me . They said it was a dry heat , but it was so hot that small fury animals were bursting into flames as they tried to cross the asphalt.
Ok I may be exaggerating on the last part a bit

Rick,
40c is not unusual here in the summer, but 44 is the highest I have seen in the 12 years I've been here.
I used to work outside in this and we had to put all handtools in buckets of water between use or we would burn our hands. I've recorded 57c inside my car after it was locked up in the sun all day.
The island has a blanket rule that all outside workers are allowed to stop work when it hits 40 and to seek shade.
We have an amazing amount of 39.5 days (lmao)

I guess I can't complain. Here in Florida we always have high humidity. Most of the summer the Realfeel is 110F but the actual temperature rarely goes over 100F. As I said, it's the humidity. Most day when we wake up. at this time of year, the temp is 80F and the humidity is 90-95%. That falls off to 65% by midday with the higher temperature.

I wouldn't last long on Cyprus.
