I thought this was a joke, I really did!

I know I've been living here in the UK for 7 years and I should be a) acclimatised and b) used to the English idea of hot, but this article seriously made me check whether it was in the Odd Box section or something. 'Prepare for a heatwave' UK told. So I read on, expecting to read about searing temperatures. The article has a number of suggestions for coping with extreme temperatures. Identify the coolest room in the house, stay cool by painting your house white (at this I checked the date. April Fool??), plant shrubs for shade and identify a fair weather friend, someone you can call on in the event of a heatwave. I read on, interested to see exactly what fearsome conditions are anticipated this summer. I quote: "In London, this would mean daytime temperatures had exceeded 32C and night-time temperatures were over 18C degrees. In the North West, it would be 30C and 15C, respectively." Heatwave!? Honestly people, this is what summer is supposed to be like. Bring it on, baby, I can't wait! Proper hot! Hooray!!!

  1. I think this is a) funny, b) interesting, but under the circumstances I can't say it's cool! ;-)
