What's the weather like where you're right now? Here in Vienna it's just freakin cold! It's 14 degrees outside (actually not that cold, but after summer it feels _really_ cold, especially if the inside temperature in the morning pretty much equals the outside temp...)... I had to take out my trusty old heat dish to get my freezing feet warm since the central heating didn't kick in fast enough... Summer's definitely a thing of the past! And it's grey and rainy outside...

I've noticed it getting quite a lot colder at night -- down to around 7C on some mornings first thing, but it soon warms up after the sun rises. It's cold enough for my Mother to be getting the electric blankets out, which is a source of worry. I wish they would stop making those things!

Right now, in Brussels, it's 15C, nearly windless, and some inky-black low clouds are starting to drift in, to keep us on target for the 800mm annual rainfall total.

15 degrees actually sounds good, here (Florida) it's about 32C. Just a little too toasty for me.

Not sure I made it clear, I meant 15 degrees Celsius, that means 59 degrees F.
At school we started wearing jackets and hats in class today... and really got htinking about sealing the windows DIY style. As well as jokingly thinking about the installation of electric fan heaters... my only guess: if we actually do that, we can already try to get a fuse box key and start stocking 10A Diazed II fuses...

Ranger,
I know that you were speaking metric, like I said its 32C here, which means a blistering 90F. I wish it were only 59F(15C) here. Even 20C would be nice.

Inches and pints are dreadful enough, but of all of the non-SI/non-metric units, I think fahrenheit is by far the silliest.

Even the BBC stopped giving the temperatures in °F about 15 years ago. I think my parent's electric cooker bought in 1969 was the last time I saw it on any equipment.

Yep, and it's darned annoying! You notice though that when we get the very rare blistering heatwave they still revert to it to some degree? (Excuse the pun [Linked Image] ), e.g. "It reached 35 Celsius in London today, that's a whopping 95 degrees Fahrenheit."

It's very variable here at the moment, but autumn has definitely arrived. It's the wind, rain, and general gray dullness that I don't like, but the temperaures aren't actually that low yet: 11:30 a.m. and I'm seeing 60 outside (a shade over 15C for you SI and European folk! [Linked Image] ).

Supposedly it is drier in your general area than the average for the country, isn't it, Paul? There was something about water shortages in some areas of the UK in the Belgian news during the mini-heatwave earlier in summer, and the banning of hoses. I still can't quite believe that fuss in 1976, when my grandmother, in Wales of all places, was in a drought and the water mains were turned off except 19h-21h every evening. Mind you, if you look at Portugal and Spain, that's becoming a really serious situation. Makes me wonder if there is going to be any Rioja and Bairrada in the future.

Are they metering UK water yet, or is it still on the old flat-rate tariff?

Hi,

It is 15.4C outside the server room in Carbrook, Sheffield today. and 16C inside the server room [Linked Image] It is a nice crisp day, I have been sat outside this morning. At least it isnt raining which makes a change for Sheffield. I think it is much better cool, makes it more enjoyable walking around, fewer tourists and the brats are all inside! I havent a clue how hot or cold it is in farenheit. Perhaps we should all convert to Kelvin in which case, it is 288K outside and 289K inside [Linked Image]


I took my time, I hurried up, The choice was mine, I didn't think enough
