I must be a boreal creature because I loathe hot weather; my pale, fragile skin breaks out in a prickly rash except in the corners where the eczema runs riot, and my respiratory system goes all asthmatic and hostile.

Southern Ontario can get quite spectacularly hot, but never for long; within a few days, an equally spectacular thunderstorm will brew up, the world explodes with racket and rain, and the day after is fresh and about five degrees (Celsius) cooler, if not more. In Stratford, the extreme heat is an inconvenience; in Toronto, full as it is of stinking, belching motor vehicles, it's utter misery.

Today, the sky is clear, the air is still, and a gentle pong of pig manure permeates the area. Environment Canada is pretty sure we will have a thunderstorm before the day is out, and my aching feet tend to agree.

When I lived in Abidjan it never got below the *high* 80's. I would wear a sweater.

It didn't get above the mid-90's usually either. But go inland, even Korhogo, aand it got a LOT hotter. Aah, it was nice.

Going even farther inland and it got dry, and even hotter, wow.

Now I have broken down and put on the AC in my bedroom, so the rest of my house is really hot in comparison. Summer is approaching Charlottesville. One of the main reasons I like it here is that it never got hot enough, or humid enough, for my preferences, when I lived in the Boston area. Aaah. High heat and high humidity. Now if only I could go to the beach!

It's usually around 90F (mid thirties C) in Abidjan. My in-laws are quite used to this, including the high humidity. Occasionally the Harmattan (seasonal wind) blows and it gets what they call 'a bit chilly' (about 80F)
When husband visits them, he's sweltering for the first few days and panting for breath, but then he acclimatises. When he gets back to UK he's shivering at first and wears his woolly jumper for a bit!

In Stratford, Ontario, it snowed two weeks ago, I finally turned off the furnace last week, and on Saturday the air-conditioner kicked on for the first time. The electric fans are out of winter storage in the interest of less-sweaty sleep.

Yesterday, I sweated buckets while transplanting a couple of hosta and desultorily pulling a few weeds. We have now officially entered Beer On The Porch season.

Next: killer humidity, and the pong of pig-farming when the wind is in the wrong quarter, which is most of them.

I love heat, any amount of it. I must be a lizard or something!
It was 25C yesterday, and I sat on The Bench out the front in full sunshine in a cardigan. The oil tanker arrived and the oil man was perspiring like a fountain, poor bloke. He couldn't believe I had a woolly on. He filled our tank (we kept well away from each other) and I put an ice-cold can of Diet Coke from my husband's stash in the fridge on the pavement for him. He gulped it down thankfully. I had a nice hot cup of tea after he'd left!

Interesting to read here of the conditions in 2006 in the UK. That was an exceptional summer, one of the warmest ever recorded. It was also very dry here in Cornwall; we had just four inches of rain in four months.

We've had more than our usual share of good, or at at least half-decent, summers since then. We've also had a run of very mild winters. This spring in England has been exceptionally dry and sunny. The wind has been in the east at times, which pegs temperatures back. But overall it's going to go down as a vintage spring. I have a deep Mediterranean tan already, and that's just from doing the gardening...

HIGH TEMPERATURES WILL BE AROUND 100 DEGREES TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY. THIS WHEN COMBINED WITH HIGH RELATIVE HUMIDITY WILL RESULT IN HEAT INDEX VALUES OF UP TO 110 ESPECIALLY TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY. THE EXCESSIVE HEAT MAY PERSIST INTO THURSDAY.

A lovely summer morning here on the wet coast of Canada. Its around 6:30AM and 10C or about 52F and its raining. Yeah!!! Our very hot spell was short lived, it only lasted about 3 days.

The rain is welcome though. I hope it does more than just settle the dust, because my apple trees are very thirsty. While I have no qualms about watering the rest of the garden with our precious well water, I'd prefer not to have to use it on the fruit trees too. The real rains of November are still a long ways off.

solarac.com - system sends power back to the utility most months of the year, when you are not using the electricity for your air conditioning. So, you are reducing your electic bill overall.

Solar powered fans - you can get a small one that fits in your car window to cool the car while it is parked in the sun. You can buy a cap with a little solar panel in it that runs a fan to cool your head.... or, you can get an attic fan that has roof top solar panel to cool your house, or use it in your RV.

And the shipping and conversion to UK would be pricey too.... I just want a fan that I can plug into a socket that is run by solar power.. that would be so simple. The sun is shining so the fan is on. Store a bit for night time and it would be perfect.

Solarac looks interesting Alice but at $7000 (after state rebates)plus installation it is about 4 times the price of the air conditioner that it would run.
Needs to be a huge price improvement before it will be taken up in serious numbers.
Compared to the improvements made in other electronic gizmos,solar is still in the stone age.

Same story from everywhere, more extreme weather, record sales and usage of air conditioners leading to record electricity demand...leading to more power stations... burning more coal..aargh!
And then there's the nuclear option just in case we haven't phucked up the planet enough yet.
Now here's the strange thing, Sanyo, Sanwa et all can churn out airconditioners at incredibly low prices but can't get their shit together to produce solar panels at a sensible price.
Computers and all the electronic goodies have improved in price/performance by a thousandfold and more but somehow the much simpler technology of solar voltaic has gone nowhere.
Solar radiation is highest at the same time aircon need is greatest so no need for expensive batteries, just need solar electricity for 10 Cents per watt rating instead of the $10 per watt we have been stuck on forever.
Will it ever happen?
I doubt it
