Re: Weather!

We had a storm here this afternoon and lots of lovely cooling rain.

It was a choice between giving up the hat, or my cigars, or compression stockings.
Give up the compression stockings, definitely.

I envy the lucky people who have a nice fountain with ice-cool running water from the mountains right next to their front door! You know who you are!
That fountain has been getting plenty of very noisy and boisterous use over the last week or so!

Re: Weather!

Clouded over early evening and had a nice breeze, but then the sun came back out again and the wind died down.

Re: Weather!

I'm actually loving the heat. Sorry. Sitting on the balcony last night, when it was 27 degrees at midnight, was like being on holiday in Greece. Currently got the fan on in front of an open window, bringing the fresh air in. Time for another coffee frappé.

Re: Weather!

The thing that is different from living in the US (east coast) is the lack of comparative humidity. It does cool down at night. Eventually, by about 1am, it is cool enough to sleep.

We have fans on in every room. One thing we’ve noticed is a lack of mosquitoes (knock wood). Either the fan is a detriment or they‘ve all dried up.

But it is atrocious from about 2pm to 9pm.

We‘re wondering if we should look into ceiling fans.....anyone have them here?

Oh I do have my boiled beetroot moments (mainly on the train). Had a moment of bliss last week when I was coming down the escalator in a store, and the display of fans at the bottom were going full blast. Got some lovely nether boobage ventilation from those, so much so that I decided to return the same route once I'd finished shopping. Unfortunately, there were 3 ladies hoisting their bras up and blocking the fans on my return.

Re: Weather!

Weather has been here for ever. And I think people complaining about the weather, too. It could be a tiny bit warmer, a proper summer heat I remember from childhood.

Who cares about A/C and fans. Just eats electricity for our spoilt butts.

Make the most of it. Complainers are not hot. As sexy, I meant.

Love how little one needs in this, little laundry to do, no appetite. Just hanging outside as much as one can.

Ah, I see. One must not complain, eh? Asceticism.

Just remember to keep hydrated and wear a hat. Sunscreen too if that’s your thing.

My fan is still in the cellar. Guess it takes an other 10°C or so for me to find the need to drag it up.

I guess you do your coffee frappé the Greek way? Where do you buy this:

Don't tell me, in Greece

Hahahah..Nyah, growing up in a poor place doesn't make one necessarily ascetic, only actually not needing much, unintentionally. Complaints included. Eats energy. Hot weather eats enough energy as it is. Pragmatism might look ascetic, I get it. Complaints show care and reflection, too, it was not a jab, just a friendly comment.

I totally agree, sunscreen, a hat, start a day with 50cl of lemon water. I'd say sunglasses, a really good yank habit, albeit (just for you, curley) my eyes need a surgeon unfortunately, too late for sun glasses.

We got really cold last summer, a lot of rain and 10deg temps, so maybe that's why this weather just rocks

When I read this, images of Tolkien's middle earth sprung to mind..

And when DB answered, I knew then with much joy that Tom Bombadil is alive and well living on a mountain in Glarus.

Who'd have thunk it?


forgive me, it's the heat

Iced espresso with cold whipped milk (my evil Nespresso aerocino whips milk both hot or cold) or iced coffee sweetened with condensed milk are yummy as well.

CZ. I got a tin in my teacher's lounge armoire.

You can get it in Denner, in a bag, though.
