We’re having a heat wave ! June 10, 2007

Posted 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 !

when i lived in duluth i thought 40 degres (f) was perfect: warm enough that it wasn’t freezing ,but cool enough that you could exert yourself without getting overheated.

now that i live a bit farther south than that, i’m thinking 65-74 is the better range.

today it was 84 here, too. riley did not much care for the walk. he says YOU try going out in that sun with a dogsuit on and see if you like it.

Ah.. it’s warm here in Sweden too, more than 30 Celsius. =) I hope the nice weather in Ireland will stay, cuz in two weeks me and my best friend are coming 😉

laurie – yeah molly just lay on the back porch all day and stared at the sky and trees and stuff … even the prospect of some ball throwing didn’t excite her too much (at first !) and eastern europe is really hot normally ! except in winter when it’s colder than a witch’s knickers.

twendetwende – tjena ! ha en bra semester !

God it was glorious, but as Dad reminded me it is Leaving Cert time so hence the weather has to be good.
