It's been a scorcher in Europe the past week. Here in London, we've been sleeping with just a sheet and a fan (and Ollie has opted for the kitchen tile overnight).
The heat is even worse on the continent. Marcia & Rutger are in Munich and it's 36°C (95°F) there in a hotel with no A/C!
Margaret reported the same temperature in St. Eriksplan yesterday, although I've just heard from her on Aspö that it's cooler there today, but still warm enough for her to brave the waters off their dock. (My Stavsnäs webcam guy reported 30°C (86°F) as his high temperature.) The Local is also reporting many temperature records this weekend.
Suffice it to say we're not built for those kinds of temperatures over here, although 95°F would be a relatively cool July day back in Dallas!
