I see the UK is "melting" under "scorching" 34C temps ATM.

Phurt - that's a gloriously mild summer day in Aus.

I'm not keen on 39 - 19 is easier. Can throw on another layer more easily than stripping off (and it's more considerate of others).

(Having tried both Australian 'extremes' for extended periods now).

I am also very glad that I don't live in Riyadh or Chennai on one hand or Toronto or Moscow on the other. Seriously, anyone who complains about the climate anywhere in Australia is a whiny sook.

Sad Guilty as charged and I lived in the UK for twenty years (well what passes for summer mainly). I blame my age and curmudgeonliness.

Got stuck on top of Mt Perisher in a -10C blizzard back in the early 80s. I was well rugged up but my balls still did tonsil impressions.

Wonderful weather round in Mumbai. 30 cm and high tide of rain flooding the city.... Wet all over and had to stay over in the bloody office. At least the air conditioning was turned down upon complaint. Good use for the hand dryers for once. Socks, pants and all.

Somewhat ironic, the Texas oil industry will be after aid following Cyclone Harvey. Texas Congressman and Senators failed against, sought to delay and cut back aid to NY, NJ and other areas affected by flooding several years ago.
