Some hot weather here...

July 9th, 2013 at 11:56 am

It was 20 degrees Celsius here, roughly, which frankly is enough for us. I don't know how my fellow SA bloggers manage to survive in the extreme heat you have - this is a cold day for you guys I bet!! Well, here, we are useless. We complain that we don't have the sun and when it's here we complain.

We were out in MIL's garden yesterday with SG but we had to bring her inside a lot because it's just too much for her - plus she hates wearing her sun hat.

    Oh, my goodness, yes, 20C / 68F is a bit chilly to me if I am just sitting or if there is a breeze. In the house, I'd dress warmly at that temp. But outside doing garden work it would be a pleasant temperature at which I would not sweat too much. I'd be amazed to have a summer day like yours!

    It is currently 34.1C / 93.4F with 54% relative humidity, so a heat index of 40C / 104F. I did just come in from watering the garden. I took off my straw hat and soaked my head with the water hose, then occasionally wet my arms, too. But usually in the heat I wear long sleeves because I sunburn easily and the mosquitoes are such a bother.

    Yes, that is a generally a pleasant temp for outside...although a little on the cool side. With the heat and humidity today it is not pleasant to be outside at all.

    I thought that would be the response. I checked FB earlier and one friend declared "bring on the winter" Clearly we wouldn't survive in your temps.
    It's colder now, just checked weather forecast online and it's 15C

    We get very cold in the winter as well. I think one just adapts to the environment they are in.

    Everything is relative. Big Grin

    I've lived in Tucson and Seattle - two opposites in the temp department. I learned a very strange fact: there is a social aspect to temperature perception. The first year I lived in Tucson I marveled at the woman who wore a sweater when it was 90F/32C(?) ... but I still marvel at that but when "winter" came - low 70F/21-22C (?), I, along with everybody else in Tucson dressed in windbreakers and enjoyed a nice hot chocolate.

    Then here in Seattle absolutely none of my friends set their house thermostat to anything greater than 60F at any time. Another case of social convention. And you know you've adjusted in Seattle when any temp greater than 80F is considered blistering with compliants all around.
