What's this with the English and their trains? They stop them when there is any amount of snow and when there is finally a bit of sun... What about spring and autumn, what's the railways' excuse for not working on these seasons?

As if the earthquake wasn't bad enough, we're now expecting a major hurricane along the East Coast. At the moment it's aiming right at New York....

"Temperatures will hit 31C (88F) in some parts of the country, beating the highs of 28C (82F) that made yesterday which was the hottest day of the year."

"And in Newhaven, East Sussex, a Co-op funeral store almost burned down when the sun reflected off a window."

"The sizzling light acted like a prism and set fire to flowers in the 28C heat. Firefighters took an hour putting out the fire after a member of the public spotted smoke in the shop window and raised the alarm."

"In Brighton, steps leading to the beach even started to melt. Brighton and Hove council said that recently laid asphalt had could not withstand the heat combined with heavy usage."

"A heat warning issued by the Met Office on Friday remained in place, alerting people to the possibility the weather could have a significant effect on health."

28c ignites things in England? Shit, that's a below-normal summer day here. How on Earth did the British ever manage to conquer the world?!

The early morning minimal temperature was 28C (82F) here today.
Once again: the minimum, in dawn. Crazy.

They will stop the trains in autumn due to the wrong type of leaves on the tracks. It's true, I'm not kidding you, they do stop trains when there are a few leaves on the tracks! Britain has become such a sad country with their Health and Safety shit. At times I wish Churchill was still alive.

Wow. Here, they don't activate the yellow warning until we hit 35ºC. Of course, we have a hotter climate.

I reckon we get about 2 weeks a year when it is hotter than 35, I love warm weather but actually I don't really miss temperatures higher than 35C, I would be happy if it was about 30 C from June to September all the time, that's ideal temperature for me.

Well yellow warning means that the weather conditions are common for time of the year but it can affect more sensitive people and also there is a higher risk of forest fires.

Orange code means that the weather is not so usuall and above the average. They have about 37C in the South.

35'C isn't hot. It's pleasant!

28 is jumper weather.

10 is freezing cold.

Sincerely,

Australia.

37-39 in Hungary as well. Never ever (at least never since the recording of temperatures) did we have such a heat in this period of the year.

Rakes and leaf-blowers are as rare in England as snowplows, I take it? :-)

Yep, as well as common sense. Heathrow has gone beyond a joke when a few snow flakes fall.

I'm with you. I love warm weather and, even more so, daylight in the evening. (My least favorite time of year is November and early December, rather than February: I'd choose cold over dark if I had to.) But when it gets to the point where you're sweating every time you step outside, it's too much.

35c is not pleasant when it's humid. Heck, 25c is not pleasant when it's humid. (And 35F is cold, but do even the British know that any more?)
