    Default OT: What does your thermometer show right now?

    Kronberg (a town of 19,000 souls near Frankfurt/Main), 1747 CET:


    Outside air temperature 38C/100F (probably more like 45/115 in the open sun)

    Room temperature 34C/93F (I'm sitting right under the roof, that's why :-( ...guess I'd better turn off my comp for a while, cooling fans or not) ...

    48% rel. humidity

    If it makes you feel any better, I grew up in a place that had more than 2 straight months of temps above 100 degrees one year (every single day), and 112 in the shade was not uncommon. What was really fun was the old air conditioners used in the 40s and 50s were evaporative coolers, just wet mats with a fan to pull air through them. It turned hot air into hot humid air.

    2 secs while I nip upstairs to my room....... about 28C (80F) and 41% humidity which is quite comfortable. Its nice to see some good weather here in Yor (England). Just as well I went up, my England flag had got caught in my window!

    [font size="1" color="#FF0000"]LAST EDITED ON Jun-18-02 AT 01:18PM (EDT)[/font][p]Well, the weather report just said thunderstorms should be expected tonight and tomorrow. I'd have no objections at all against that - nice as good weather is, once in a while some rain to clean the air is really a relief. This is especially true for people like me who are suffering from allergic rhinitis (hayfever) :-( ...

    However, if this summer should remain that hot I might consider getting at least a ventilator :-) .

    (Added) All those temperatures are still nothing against what some people we know once had to endure back in the 1970s. They were on vacation to Lanzarote (Canary Islands), and some time ago they told us that one day they had an incredible 122F in the shadows and at least 162 in the sun :o :o :o :o :o ...! Now THAT must have been hellish!

    Bob (above) must be from the place where I'm at now. It's 10AM
    and close to 40C. No rain for months. Everything just bakes in the desert sun. The "swamp cooler" is still the most popular as it's cheaper than AC.

    Outside temperature:85F
    Inside temperature(air conditioned):65F :)

    Note: I keep my room on the cool side because I completely lost my tolerance for heat about 10 years ago when I helped a neighbor with his outdoor entertainment business. I remember being stuck outdoors in the sun on quite a few 100F days, and needing to drink half a gallon of water just to keep from being dehydrated. If I had my way there would only be spring, winter, and fall. :D
