"Phew! What a scorcher!"

The relentless Outer Hebrides heatwave continues. The thermometer in our garden at 2pm today (nb the light area is the flash from the camera, not the sun which was behind the fence post/thermometer):

  1. And the funny thing is that 22 degrees isn't even THAT hot, but we get so used to the cold weather that it feels like it's scorching.Every once in a while I come across a headline that says something like "Britain sizzled in the 70s" and it makes me smile.

    Hi, just passing by, but thought I'd leave a comment. I had to chuckle at your 'heat wave'! :)It's cooling off to 33C where I'm currently living! However, as much as I dread the summers here (the desert)...I don't envy your winters!! :)
