Central Heating In August!

Post by Storm Chaser » 31 Aug 2020 08:41

Got up at 7.00am today on a bank holiday, in the summer, in the UK and it’s so cold I’ve put the central heating on. Never had to do that before at this time of year :bigcry: .

As for the "never had to do that before..." I agree.
No central heating here, still having an old fashioned gas heater but it is burning already a few days now.
It is a pain in the neck to get it burning but the forecast says higher temps at the end of the week (I hope).
So you are not the only one :D

Also no corona in the house, but outside the tally goes up slowly.
We don't have to wear masks anymore outside apart from using public transport. To be honest I have no clue what the authorities are thinking/doing/deciding. I just try to stay away from busy places and avoid as much as possible crowds.
Oops, I did it again... Image

Not to worry, soon it'll be Christmas time again. :santa:

And how's the weather been here? We did have a bloody heat wave back in, I don't know, June-July, whatever, but then it's been mostly mild, too mild at times, but mild, yeah. Summer mild, so I can't complain.
But it depends on where you are in the country. I had a few days off down at the Alentejo shoreline and it was good, just a little windy at times and cooler in the evening, but summer cool. Now, if you took the road away from the shore, you'd get a heat wave, well, rather hot, anyway.

This is a different year though (and nobody knows what 2021 will be like). I had plans to visit the Azores as well as spending a week in Port Santo, which has one of my favourite beaches ever, like 9 km long, and normally a nice water temperature - well, compared to here, always a good water temperature, it's the difference between, say, 12 to 15 in the summer to 20-something, who could complain? From my experience, not Cuba, but much like Cannes, for instance, and much quieter. My plans went downhill, like everybody's plans, I guess...

What a long speech about the weather, wasn't it? :D

If this pandemic is still as it is now at Christmas, I dread to think how long the queues at the supermarkets will be!

We'll be playing Christmas levels when everybody else is at the supermarket and they'll be home, doing something else, by the time we get there. :idea:

According to the BBC weather app, it’s not going to be above 20*C for about the next 10 days.

25*C is OK by me. It’s when it’s gets over 30*C that I start to complain! During the heat wave a few weeks ago, one night it was 32*C in the bedroom at midnight despite fans and open windows.
