Strange we are never happy with the weather.
Too hot for me also, early starts on the beach at this time of year but off there by 8am.
Shame we can`t store some of this heat for those winter days when it is freezing while out detecting.
70 Fahrenheit is my comfort limit.
Cheers, :thumbsup:
Dave.

For me as well. I’d booked the day off to go out, but by the time I’d walked the dogs, had breakfast it was already too warm.
So I’ve spend the morning in the garden, looking on the PAS website trying to ID finds.... drinking cold drinks and listening to Van the man.... next to detecting, this is bliss :)

And me, this weekend is going to be early start and finish to avoid the worst of it

We even had something from the met office at work warning us about the high temperatures

Look after your health people, stay safe, take plenty of fluids with you

Been working in it today - directly in the sunshine :oops: :thumbdown: When I got into the jalopy to come home the thermometer read 37C so lord alone knows what the temp was in the sun.

I like to keep tabs on the fields at this time of year to see what's happening and I'll be out from around 05.00 for a few hours then I'm running away.

As Steve says, be careful in the heat and make sure you have more than enough fluids to keep hydrated. :thumbsup:

I can't do with the heat either, I've been at work today and I don't like these temperatures at all. :thumbdown:

Well over here it read 43 on the thermometer on the sunny side of the house.....which is where the door and most of the windows are. needless to say, the garden resembles a landscape after an atom bomb test and we have retired to the house and closed the shutters. Pete had a brief idea of getting on the hammock and listening to cricket. But I told him that after half an hour he would be a char-grilled corpse and he wasn't insured to my satisfaction.
Tomorrow we are getting up early and going to the coast (only just under an hour away) before it gets too infernal. We plan yo spend the day sat in the sea with a coolbox full of lager.
Live long and prosper.

You had me right up until "lager" Jan :lol:

Mind you, the continental version is far superior to the pap we're subjected to here and, as it is a more refreshing beer in hot weather, I almost understand. Almost ;)

We can get proper bitter beer here...albeit bottles....for less than the price in Blighty. Pete is sampling an old speckled hen as I write. But it doesn't like heat and I find it a bit much in hot weather. The lager here is a different beast as you say. We have some Leff chilling nicely and I personally like to turn it into 'peach beer' when it is hot weather by adding a soupcon of peach syrup. Very nice too.
Some of the abbey lagers here can be extremely strong. Not suitable for hot weather though.
Live long and prosper.

Blonde, Brune or Nectar are the three you can get mainstream here. Since it's chilling and you intend lobbing peach juice into it (nice idea) I'm assuming Blonde?

Lovely beer, my fave being Brune. Dribble dribble.

I got in my car this afternoon and it was 40 degrees on the dashboard :shock: It is incredibly humid too.

Personally there’s no way I’d go out detecting in this so good luck to anyone who is more hardcore than me. I’ll do freezing cold and rain and even driving sleet but not hot. But please put a hat on and drink lots cause heatstroke is really, really not nice :thumbsup:

I work outside and I'm as brown as a nut. I didn't go in today though because I find it really hard to think straight when it's too hot.
Especially with physical work. I had some dry stone walling to do.
It's been fairly hot but bearable and it actually pissed down for a while down here in Somerset!
Damned if you do and damned if you don't down here. It seems the weather will deliberately be different to the forecast. :(
Still, enjoyed my day off. :D

No employers were injured during this post! Work for meself! :lol:

The hot weather never affected me when I was younger but as I’ve got older my resilience has gone down as the temps have gone up.
I can manage up to about 17cent. Above that I dive for cover. It’s dammed boring though. Can’t even sit in me lovely new conservatory and admire my hard work in the garden. I swear my half deaf Hubby looks for the noisiest film he can find on Netflix and has the volume on 99, it only goes to 100. Makes my ears ring !

Ah happy days. I’ll never complain about the cold again :roll: At least until it gets cold :lol:
