He means 100 civilized degrees.

And he's in a country where central heating has only recently been discovered, let alone air conditioning.

Air conditioning in the UK? Maybe in fancy hotels that cater to Near East potentates.

30 of what AC would call degrees here in Chicago, but because I love The PlanetTM (and don't fancy high electric bills), I have set my indoor temp to 27.

According to the power company (which keeps me under surveillance and sends me regular emails about it), I am doing better than my PlanetTM hating neighbors. 8)

27C? Really? Hell, my thermostat is set at the government recommended 16C and the heating doesn't go on at all before Christmas or after Easter.

My energy company informs me that I use around 60% of the power typical for a property of my type, so I qualify as a tree-hugging hippy.

Get some of these, you fag!

50 here, all day and night. I open the windows if it gets too cool. Or start a nice sooty fire.

95 here and my air conditioning is out and won't be fixed until Tuesday. So I get to swelter all weekend. Bought a bunch of cheapass box fans though, and they are keeping me from dying of heatstroke even if they can't make it exactly comfortable

That's for air conditioning. During heating season, it's 18.

Yowzah! Mrs. Camel is visiting Vegas in September. You guys had better sort your climate out by then or there'll be trouble...

I live in the cool part of the state, well to the north of Vegas (to put it in British perspective, if Vegas were London, we'd be a bit south of Edinburgh). Even in September, it will probably be 100+ even at night. down there in Vegas. Last time I visited the city, it was in September and I could barely go outside.

Luckily, all the casinos and hotels have good air conditioning systems and swimming pools. So she’ll be ok indoors. Outside though, it will be like getting punched by the sun. Also, humidity is usually almost non-existant ("But it's a dry heat..."), so she won't have that making it worse.

If you are coming along too, Chani and I could see fit to make the 8-hour drive to visit either way, though.

I ain't going. Hell, with those temperatures I'd sooner go and visit pillory in Finland!

This time of year, I DREAM of visiting someplace like Finland. Pony trekking or camping...or just watching TV

Save your gas money, Ny. You'll be able to hear her and her friend whining from well over an eight-hour mile drive away.
