48 Degrees and Rising...

Well its hot - very. I remember a few months ago one of the old boys in the village saying it was going to be one of the hottest years on record and so far it seems he could be spot on. 48 degrees on the patio in the sun - whats that in Farenheit?



This is when I wouldnt want to live in a house in Spain, especialy with no air con, the temperature in the cave is 23 degrees and even cooler at 19 in the rear bedrooms.



Not a cloud in the sky.... The thermometer in the photo was placed on the coral wall at 11.00am and the photo taken 30 minutes later, it wasnt even afternoon, still August to go aswell, will it get hotter?







Doesnt seem to bother this guy though.

Wow CR - the temp will nearly be off your thermometer in Aug if your thermometer only goes up to 50!!!

Wow! I hope it was as dry as my 48c in Marrakesh. I soon got used to it.
Great to keep cool without aircon!

Dc: tis good I must admit!

Kate: right enough - might top 50 in the sun yet!

Anon: thanks for that, 118 is warm enough...

Cream: It is dry - 2pm till 5pm is a no go for us, wrapped up in bed having a good old cool siesta!
