We just hit 40c for a 'feels like' temp. I've never seen that before. We are on the front lanai, sharing the chill pad and I dragged a fan out. Cheers!

Hot in Boston too. Of course the sky opened up just as I left to catch my train - flip flops and rain to get along. :lol:

In addition to hot and humid....Manchester NH officials are asking people to stay off all city streets :shock: (they don't say that in the middle of a sn*wstorm). Stay home...stay at work....flooded streets throughout the city.

blue sky, nice breeze here :oops: :wink:

We have a flash flood warning here also for overnight. I'm surprised I got Tommy to sit outside in this humidity after he worked in it all day. I think his Guinness helps. :wink:

Ann your afternoon at Reflexions sounded wonderful.

Wish you were closer. We have a ton of cooling pads someone donated to the shelter.

40c equals 104f. I suppose we must remain unWorldly using "f".
No big deal for FL people...so many summer days are more than 38c (feels like temp).
3 afternoons per week, my vehicle bakes in the FL sun for several hours. I drive a half mile (0.8 km) before its safe to close the windows and crank the AC.

It's hard to explain to 'northerners' why our lousy season is mid-May to mid-October. The rest of the year usually varies between 10c at night and 30c during the day (50 to 86)...without humidity. After more than a decade, would I trade it for temps in NY as low as -28f (sounds worse in Celsius at -33)? You gotta be kidding!

(Sorry for being a show-off, but numbers have been my preoccupation for so long!)

So, in Canada, y'all really think in "c" versus "f"? I'm old enough to think that the conversion started around 1975.

Yes, Maryanne, today was one of those foggy mornings. The weather people call it 'foggy' because you are blasting the AC in the car, then you get out...and your glasses 'fog' up

No, I don't but that is what the radio guy told me and I didn't have anything to convert it. :lol: I know the basics...when it's 0 (32F) it's cold, when it's 10 (50F) I can sit out back, when it's 20 (68F) I can wear shorts and any higher is heaven :D

A few things I think in metric, like a 2 litre pop bottle; it's still a quart of booze or a pint of beer. :lol: Speed limits I think metric.

My career was in the Municipal Gov't Engineering Dept (on the admin side) but when we went through the conversion it was a major undertaking with all the plans, etc., retyping the whole Red Book and dealing with contractors. I imagine some of the smaller companies didn't make it not having the dollars to convert to do business with the City.

Thanks for thinking of me Laura :wink:

Years ago my husband's relatives in Canada taught me...comparing Celsius and Fahrenheit ... take the Celsius amount and double it and add 26 and it will be very close to what we are used to in our temperatures give or take a degree
