Inside my office were 30 degrees with the a/c turned on. But I spent most of the time outside today, in the sun, at 3548903653 degrees. Yes, the outside sensor was in the sun, but still...

Hike postponed to tomorrow. I didn't sleep very well last night (heat and a sore throat).

Most colleagues here at work are kaput from the heat, for me it's not that bad, although I prefer temperatures to not exceed 30C.

Air-con works today at work. Good, there is already 33°C outside and few degrees more can be still expected. Tomorrow I plan first after-work Lake Bled swimming this summer. Temperature of the lake rose for 5 degrees in just a few days.

Ok. My girlfriend called me. She was almost ready to leave for work, when the police rang on the door. A house just behind ours was torn down and they are doing diggings there. What do you thing they found? A BOMB! So the whole area was evacuated, blocked. I hope they will disarm it and I will be able to get into my house.

Yes they frequently find large explosives from World War II. Even after almost 70 years the bomb squad still has a lot of WWII explosives to defuse. Many areas were intensively bombed, both in Germany and abroad. They still find explosives in the Netherlands at many construction sites. Especially in the areas that were quickly rebuilt in the 1950s and early 1960s. Dredging canals and shipping channels frequently returns explosives and mines as well.

A few days ago they found a bomb from WWII in Slovenia as well, I think, but I can't remember where.

This morning I heard a lot of ambulances and fire trucks with sirens wailing running on the tangenziale here in Brescia. I guessed something bad happened and I was right:


a landslide happened in Botticino, a marble cave just outside the city: some people are missing and one is badly hurt. Botticino is the secondmost important marble cave in Italy, after Carrara's. Botticino marble was used to build White House in Washington, Altare della Patria in Rome, parts of Central Grand Station in New York and the basement of the Statue of Liberty

In Tolmin, 2 policemen found it and didn't call experts for defusing bomb and bomb blew up. One policemen lost sight, both hands and has other heavy injuries.
Also there are still incidents with World War I bombs, even deadly. After almost a century those explosives can be still dangerous as they were in 1910s.

True, and I blame those who just built over them... many private contractors preferred to sweep the dust under the carpet.
And they were no more in the emergency of the immediate post-war rush, so there's no excuse for that.

When I was 15 I took part in a summer camp in a mountanious area in Friuli near the Austrian border. In this place some battles between Italians and Austrians had been fought during WWI. The hiking guide told us that the year before a stupid teen found an unexploded bomb and, ignoring every possible risk, put it in his rucksack and bring it at the refuge! When the guide discovered it, very scaried, called the Carabinieri, who contacted some experts technicians to dispose properly the device.
In that refuge we had an empty (thus not dangerous) bomb shell used to keep pens and pencils in the office.
