    It is 82 degrees

    After yesterday, this morning was lovely. I actually felt a bit chilly when I set off to work. Bliss, so it was.

    Here here to all of that!!

    I don't think it's cold until I can't feel my finger tips and I don't consider it problematically cold until I can't feel my nose, even then I'm not too bothered about it.

    I prefer colder weather, but I agree that winter can be a bit of a downer when one spends all day at work and never gets to see the sun, so if you live up north so you have to make an effort to get some sunlight in winter.

    Summer in northern places is ideal - not too hot, but plenty of light.

    Fall is the best season. Spring is too rainy.

    Firmly in the TT/GY camp of simpering wimps here. To me, it's too hot if it goes above 26C (79F). So all you sun worshipping beach going ooh I love the heat people can just piss off.

    Hot weather makes me damned cranky.

    I agree, but I think it's your definition of hot weather that perplexes me.

    I think a lot of it is just mental, since I hear a lot moaning from the press in Mexico about how the cold weather affects the national team and how Mexicans aren't cut out for it.
    Meanwhile, I go to the park in the middle of winter and you'll see Mexican kids playing in nothing but sweatpants, gloves and long-sleeve shirts in 25 degree weather.

    I once spent Christmas on the Yucatan peninsula with family near Cancun. I was miserable, it was 90-95 degrees with 100% humidity and that was their winter!!! When we went to the beach, it was empty except for a few tourists because and I quote "it's too cold to swim in december".

    As it goes, I've just said goodbye to a gentleman caller.

    I find hot weather depressing and irritating.

    TT: I think you need to get laid.

    I am generally a miserable fucker, and try to aim for the sun as often as I can afford. There is a reason for this. I like me when I am not depressed in this shitty grey island with its shitty grey outlook.

    Perhaps its because I have sod all to do to make my brain work, so I think about what would make my balls whizz (40.1C by the way).

    Britain has a lot going for it, but if the conservatives get in, I will punch Phil Collins and St*ng on their way back, as I leave.

    San Francisco has always looked nice. Too full of Giants fans though.

    Wait, why wouldn't you want to go the beach?
    Too much sun. Too much sand. Too much wind.

    Wait, why wouldn't you want to go the beach? If it wasn't for that, I'd probably just kill myself in July.

    How hot are balls?
    About 37 degrees celsius

    It's interesting that so many people seem to like it cold, dark and miserable.

    95 in NYC tonight around 7pm. Not looking forward to summer, at all. Not if it's going to be one of those summers.

    The thing that really sucks about it isn't that it's 95, it's that it was like 50 yesterday. It isn't right to have that big a variance from one 24-hour period to the next.

    San Francisco has an appealing climate overall, but it doesn't get cold enough in winter for my taste. And it's too expensive.

    If 28 is "way, way too hot" then it will never be warm enough to go to the beach, have a dip or enjoy a barbecue.
    Sounds about right.

    How the fuck do you survive, Inca?
    Okay, I work in the AC, where it was really hot earlier this week. At my apartment, which is about a mile away from the ocean (my work is about 4 miles further east) it's always cooler, and never really gets too bad at night. I can tolerate heat during the day, but when it's really hot at night that's when I get annoyed. LA only has about one or two really hot weeks each year, though.

    Is there really a UK temperature? There's always a pretty big difference between the South of England and Scotland.

    Nope, which come the summer will be a real bugger, but for now it's just super.

    Its just rained heavily here for about 30 seconds maximum. The sun is shining, and the streets are now dry. If I hadnt seen it, I wouldnt have believed it.

    The simpering wimps are out in force again, now it's about "heat"...

    Incredibly dry at the moment here, I spend a lot of time in rather humid places up in the moors of Northern England but even there it's (worryingly) bone dry. Some reservoirs don't look too good either.

    It's not day in, day out though. Most of Australia has seasons. In fact, Melbourne's winters are actually regarded as cold by those up north. For a Scot, describing 15 degrees as "cold" is laughable but, in the depths of July, people here wear boots, scarves, gloves and hats while I'm in shirt sleeves. I hate it at work - the heating's on full blast and people are wearing jumpers - and I'm covered in sweat.

    I honestly don't think I could cope with a Scottish winter now - all those minus something temperatures and days when it's a top of zero.
