Sorry to take this off topic, but who in England calls Yorkshire `the south`? - See more at:

Anyone who lives north of there would be my guess.

LMAO, different strokes brother!

For me, the only plus side of winter is hunting, ice fishing and pulling drunken friends on truck hoods behind the four-wheeler.

Might just be me though. I think SO should do a winter vrs summer poll.

It is in the mid twenties in Yorkshire.

Mate, just after Christmas, come to Australia.

You, yes you my friend, can have some experience, for free (Airfares not included) of temperatures of 44 Degrees C.

44 Degrees

Come and try it, then you can have something to complain about.

Sounds like a typical day in Florida.

Drink a lot of water, use a damp towel and you'll be fine. I promise.

I live in the UK. Near a place called Glasgow and I can assure you we are not experiencing a heatwave here.

I know exactly what you are talking about. The gaze of the thermonuclear sky tyrant is an unwelcome glare for me as well. I hate it when the temperature grows above 15 degrees C. The air drains you of all power and vigour, and the light burns the skin as well. I personally cannot stand to be out in it without factor fifty sun cream, else I would burn like you would not believe.

Sleeping at night is an impossibility at the moment, since it is far too hot to be able to get comfortable at all. My friend and I had to put up curtains at her place yesterday, and it was like working in a sauna!

Luckily, down here by the sea, there is a decent breeze more often than not. The only advantage to bright, hot days, is that assuming I am carrying my magnifying glass (which I nearly always am) I can light a cigarette without using fuel!

I've toured from southern UK all the way up to the top of Whales.
Here's my observation(s).

If the Brits had US weather they wouldn't look at the way the US citizens conducts business in the same harsh light.
For one they couldn't stand to live so close to each other as they currently do.

Whales: I noticed beautiful window boxes with perfect flowers in almost every home and apartment.
Then I realized why. It rained twice a day every day. People exited buildings inbetween rains.
No ice cubes! If you order a cola at the fast food you get 2 cubes. They hoard them like gold or something.

Lets dump a month of 90 F at 70% humidity on them and watch how fast they upgrade their 130 year old wireing.
Then they will be buying those cheap Chinese AC units too.

Ha ha, funny !! Mid to high 20s is a " heat wave "? Surely your joking? This is the temp of the water coming out of my cold tap in the summer here when we have days & days of 40 + & . I love all the pics in your link of the people cooling down lololol thanks

P:s I wouldn't swim in only 27deg, too cold

Did the creature mind you being on it?

Sorry, Im welsh, whales are animals you are after "wales"

Its probably nice in the South of Wales today too, im in central England and while theres a few big clouds its mostly open blue.

We had sunshine yesterday and today its cloudy and sunshine when the sun breaks through. I hae a sweater on because its not that hot. I'm looking forward to the warmer weather still.

In Israel the weather is a dryer heat so I suppose you have trouble with the heat we get here. Don't worry you'll
aclimatise in the end.

North East England calling - been glorious here last few days.
I've been behind on my allotment but nearly caught up now - burnt and tired but reasonably happy.

I used to hate really hot days, grown to like them last few years.
Guess the secret is to keep busy but not overdo things.
Don't mind the cold - let's face it, we have no option but to 'oop here' in The North. (And it is definitely 'North' here).

Been looking at the forecast and it seems it'll be getting a bit cooler with a bit of rain later in the week.
That's not necessarily a bad thing; I will have caught up on my allotment and the rain will do some good.
In addition I have an assignment due in next week so it'll be cool when I'm working on that and I'm working a door at the weekend - hot weather has a tendency to bring every dickhead in town out.

The mercury is expected to hit a scorching 81F (27C)

*snicker* 81F? Hot? You sound like my mom. She lives in the northeast US and she complains when it gets above 70F with no humidity.

It was about 75F here in SC yesterday with no humidity ( cooler air moved in these past few days) and I was cold. It's about 69F out there now, which is chilly for me. 81 and sunny is perfect. We haven't run the AC at all really since last week. I only wish it would stay that nice here for the summer. After the unusually cold late winter/spring we've had, I have a feeling it's going to be sweltering. And I don't mean 80F, more like 95+ (I think that's about 35C?) with really high humidity. But I would rather have summer than winter. I hate winter, which is why I moved to the southeast.

360 days of rain and 5 days of sunshine. That's about right for us here in the UK. If we're not crying out DISASTER when we get 3 months of non stop rain flooding homes, then were complaining when we get a few days of humid 25c.
It definitely wasn't like this when i was a nipper!! Long hot summers and long cold winters!!

Read through the thread,

saw OP saying maybe some posts are trolling and another post where OP apologizes for being off topic.

What is the topic?

It looks as though its a rant about warm weather, I am not sure how it corresponds to Chem trails or Geo engineering.

Sorry just not seeing the reason for the thread being in this forum unless I missed something.

I am in the UK, in Windsor which is the south. It's nice and warm, I wish it was hotter still, warm weather is great - it goes with cold beer, bbq's and it brings out all the pretty girls.
I wish it was warm more often. Most people I know are happier in the summer heat.

I have air on in my house for 3 years and it has never broken down, the air conditioning unit is portable and only £250 so if you are hot buy one. I only bought it for my children.

posted on May, 19 2014 @ 10:51 AM
Wait a few days and the temperatures will be going back closer to normal.

Then it will most likely go down below normal sometimes and go above normal other times. That's the nature of weather. I'm not doubting that climate change is real, but climate change is not as noticeable as this; it is much more subtle. What you are experiencing is a good old-style a heatwave.

How can you enjoy this weather
its horrible
i would rather cold snow than this

cold snow can be countered via heating or blankets

how the HELL do you counter scorching weather?

air con?

they are very expensive and often break down

I'm with you on that one. You can always add more blankets but you can only get so naked.
