    UK - Heatwave! BBC: "temperatures rival Caribbean"

    "Parts of the UK are set to be as hot as the Caribbean on Saturday, with a high of around 31C (87.8F) expected in or around London during the afternoon."
    BBC

    Here's the view when I look up:


    Everybody else having fun?

    What camera did you use to take that? Your SLR or digital or what?

    My dad went to England yesterday and kept saying how cold it is there so he took a bunch of warm clothing. I guess he didn't check the weather channel.

    And survived? Something happens there every year. Still not as bad as Action Park was.

    How was the white-trash exhibit?

    I know. My friend up north says it's sweltering. Of course to a northerner in the UK, 70s could be considered sweltering.

    Here in NC, it isn't quite hot yet. But I can't wait till it is.

    Nothing quite like playing basketball outside when it's 95, humid, and sunny.

    Everyones revising for their friggin exams.

    I did walk the dog though, even though this hayfever is killing me.

    It's probably the way I set it up, air goes from bottom right to top left and middle right to top left. Everythings cooled except the GFX card. Could be better...

    So have you Brits got your high ground picked out? This warm weather is not going to stop at Scotland. It's going right up to the North Pole. Melting ice, higher water? You know the drill.
