We’re having a heat wave ! June 10, 2007Posted by Rambling Man in General Bloggery, Ireland & the Irish.
My God but it’s hot today ! and it was hot yesterday and already I’m worn out by it all. There is a saying that only “Mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the midday sun!” – well, from now on you can add our entire nation to that ! My head is a red as a Communist’s arse and although I had applied plenty of sun sun block, I still got burned.
I moved our funky indoor/outdoor Swedish thermometer into the kitchen and left it for 20 minutes to get a proper reading … so it’s official – in Ireland right now (at 6.30 in the evening !) it is no less than 28.7 ° (85F) which is really, really hot for here !
In fact, we had warmer weather here today than in Moscow, Auckland, Tenerife or Santiago, Chile !
She’d be a great little country if you could only roof her !
