Lol it’s going to be -30C here tonight… it’s -18C and plummeting now.

I’d kill to be in +40. I love that kind of weather, yet am stuck in Canada. Life is cruel.

I was born and raised in the desert… heat is no big deal. At least to me. Stay out of direct sunlight for too long and drink lots of water.

ETA: Running cold water over your wrists is a common way I was taught to cool down. Cold rags around your neck/wrist and backs of your legs will help. It cools the blood as the veins are closer to the surface of the skin there.

@canarydiamond:  +1 to all of that!

Vegas in the middle of the summer is my version of pure heaven!

If you think humidity in Melbourne is bad, don’t ever come up north in summer! I lived in Melbourne for a few years and loved the dry heat in comparison to the humidity in Brisbane.

Yuck! I hate heat as well. Anything 25+ is really just too hot for me, unless I’m on a beach near the water.

@goingtotherooftopoflove:  I’m trying to feel bad for you, but with the cold over here your weather sounds heavenly.  I understand that it will probably be very hot though.  Bring lots of water!!!

@goingtotherooftopoflove:  Hahaha me too. I figure I’m like an amphibian in that way… the comfort range is about 17-23 for me, and otherwise I’m freezing or overheating. Can’t regulate my body temperature!

@goingtotherooftopoflove:  Fellow Melbourne bee here 😉 So I AM feeling the heat. To make matters worse at our work today the air conditioning decided to stop working. I have kept myself cool only by pouring cold water down my back from my drink bottle lol! Not pleasent! Hope you are coping!

it was -38 Celcius here last week…. while I don’t relish the idea of 40 degree heat, I’d prefer +40 to -40 anyday… But if you have to be outside working in it, i feel for you.  It gets that hot here in the summers too, and it can be brutal if you dont have access to air conditioning
