Really, this is too much. 40 C again today; that's above human melting temperature. Yesterday's 35 C was bad enough.
I'm a Summer baby, so I should be used to warm weather, but anything over about 30 C I find energy sapping. My preferred temperature is around 25 C.
So, this is where we'll spend most of the day, in the cool of our auvent; handy for the Summer Fridge. We'll drink lots of cold water, cold beer rather than wine, and sit in the shade reading tales of Nanook of the North.
Our lawns have already turned beige and crunchy. Nothing is growing. We are desperate for rain; I can't remember the last time we had any.
So, if you don't hear from me, and a small pile of dry bones are found nearby, you'll know what has happened.
