    Cool It's too hot

    Hi guys,

    It topped 35.1 Degrees Celsius in our office today (That's 95.18 Fahrenheit in old money), in my opinion at least that's too hot. I'm actually looking forward to the rain forecast for Wednesday (and I cycle to work each day).

    Is it really too hot? Or should I shut up, skive off work, and enjoy the 3 nice days we get before autumn starts next week?

    Health and safety laws may need to addressed in the coming years as there is no upper limit beyond which you are not allowed to work. But there is a lower limit.

    If it's any consolation then it will cool down by next weekend - at least the nights will be cooler.

    FARRRRRRR too hot. This heat is unnecessary and completely unenjoyable.

    Those of you who are about to pipe in with "oh stop moaning and enjoy it, we don't get it often".. What is there to enjoy? Constantly sweating puddles? YEAH, ace.

    I love the fact our offices are air conditioned, and wish my house was

    "This heat is unnecessary" Sorry, just being childish, but it sounded funny to me. LIke a neighbour being unnecessarily loud - "Oi, turn that down, its far too hot!".

    Our offices are A/C'd too, although I work from home alot, and that isn't A/C'd, and with several computers running in an upstairs room, it gets a little warm. Still, there is no dress code at home...

    Also, anybody who sais "We don't get it often" should start checking our summer weather over the last few years. Periods like this is becoming more frequent...

    oh stop moaning and enjoy it, we don't get it often! . . . what is there to enjoy? Lovely girls wearing lovely outfits for starters shorts and tshirts weather . . . being outdoors more often (sports, frisbee, bbqs, beer gardens, outdoor raves, go-karting, festivals) . . . enjoy it all while you still can!

    I dont like excessive heat either . . . 35 degrees is pretty hot, but if it was a permanent fixture, Id even consider moving to London

    It's not as bad as last time (when I made a thread).

    It is hot but the humidity isn't too bad here... if it keeps up like this the humidty will probably go up though...

    Aye, its the humidity thats the killer. Its why you can go to places like Colorado, USA and experience 100F, and it doesn't feel so bad, as the air is so dry.
    I remember a couple of years ago, it being the same temp as now, but feeling MUCH hotter.

    Wasn't too bad on the Northern line today... was hot... but not as bad as I was expecting.

    I don't like heat. All it is is an excuse to eat sweets.
