Re: Weather rant

I went to work, office is not airconditioned, said I was too hot and came back home. Spent the afternoon working *cough* on my balcony. Still hot but ... nicer than the office by far.

Is there an official upper temperature limit for offices in Switzerland?

In the UK there is only an official minimum. The upper limit is whatever is reasonable for the type of work.

Probably an official calculation requiring measurement of the amount of sweat which appears on a 1cm cube of specially prepared Emmental cheese.

She was real, honest! When I saw the scaffolding go up, I was expecting to be treated to the sight of a hairy arsed Italian bloke - you can imagine my delight when my preconceptions were proven wrong!

Roofing's allowed on Sundays where you are? Or did you lose a day?

Saturday's forecast is for a high of 21 C. Can't wait for the weekend.
