Alastair,
We've been having a heat wave as well in Southern California with humidity which is not common for this area.. my pain meds make it even more intolerable it seems ~
Thanks for the heads-up for peeps on the weather.. seems like it's all over the place as the US is having similar type of heat waves, esp. in the mid west~ (for anyone planning a summer trip to the States)!

The pleasure of the warmest year in the US (and perhaps in Europe) ever in recorded history.

Alastair,
You can thank my daughter for taking our good Aussie weather with her. She's been travelling Europe and the UK, currently working in Salcombe, lovely Devon.

I think there is a global heatwave! Oh no, it reached 100 degrees F yesterday, just 30 minutes from Monterey Bay. We don't have air conditioning here because it's usually so moderate. As I watch the British Open, it looks sweltering there as well. These warm temperatures may encourage some members to begin water therapy.

At least we don't need a hot sauna/whirlpool.

This is probably a bad thing to say, environmentally tho if I end up in Europe for spine surgery in the winter, I hope it will be warmer during that season as well..

Meanwhile, I wish this heat would let up.. real draining. Tho I think it's not so bad with the spine~

By the time I can afford surgery, Dr. B. will be in Greenland.

I can feel the cool fog air creeping in tonight - what a relief. Temperatures to 107 - with humidity, this was unreal. I drank an ocean amount of water in the last 10 days anymore I would have drowned.
