Agree! I've always thought it's worse to be too hot than too cold. If it's cold you can always add extra blankets or a hot water bottle but when it's too hot, there is just no escape!

The worst is taking the train or the tube when it's really hot like that.  It seems like whenever it gets really hot, the AC on every train is completely broken, sometimes the heat is on!   Luckily it only happens for like 2 days a year.

I can't imagine it hitting 34.5C in the Scottish Highlands. We're boiling when it reaches 22C!

My happy place is 24C MAX.   [smiley=2thumbsup.gif]

Yup, last year we had a day hit 34.5C which was 94F.  It was BRUTAL.  You might think that doesn't sound bad... but here it's awful.  No ice, no a/c, no where to escape.  It sucked!
We actually bought an AC (that's also a dehumidifier - bonus!) so that I can still breathe/sleep on the very few hot nights. This has been a really nice stretch of weather!
