33°C (91°F) is way too hot for a Norwegian... more so when it's just the latest in a strong of hot days. Warmest July on record in my part of Norway, as was June and May. To quote one of the local papers; "This isn't fun any more".

Ugh...91 is way too hot for me too. It has been a brutal summer.

It could just be the beginning of the global change.
Which I personally believe it is. Hope I'm wrong.

Living in a fairly rural area, for me it is an absolute joy to experience each season to the fullest...

 
Summer: The days are at their longest, the weather at its warmest, plants grow vigorously, animals are busy raising their young while their food is plentiful.

Autumn: Each day is shorter than the one before, the weather grows increasingly stormy, life is in transition – Hoarding resources and preparing to endure hardship, or migrating to warmer climes.

Winter: The days are short, darkness abounds, the weather is cold and harsh, there is plenty of rain or even snow, life lies dormant; death stalks the land.

Spring: Each day is longer than the one before, the weather is capricious yet delivers ample warmth and rain, life wakes from its slumber and much of it has breeding as a high priority, animals that migrated to warmer climes for winter now return, all look forward to the imminent arrival of summer.


Here in England we are more accustomed to eternally grey skies, warm rain in summer and cold rain in winter, and that's about it. I will be overjoyed if the hot weather prevails for another 6 weeks or so yet  Thumbup

I'm with you Hans. Our typical climate is fairly cool and dry and the last week or so has been anything but. At least one more week of this. But it's not unusual, we can get this sort of hot and humid weather up from the Gulf of Mexico every summer. I wish it would stay where it's appreciated.

Right. I lived in Houston for 10 years and never adjusted to the heat and high humidity. I sweated profusely just stand still. In those days we were still required to wear a suit and tie to work, which was most unpleasant. Thank god for air conditioning.

I was brought up in Southern Africa and left when I finished secondary school to attend university in Montreal, Canada. Notwithstanding my youth in high heat, I came to love the winter cold and the snow soon after I arrived 51 years ago. My wife, however, who was brought up in England, hates winter and loves heat and humidity a la Houston. Different strokes for different folks, clearly.

We had 33 Celsius/92 fahrenheit in Copenhagen yesterday and today, the highest temperature measured in many many years in Copenhagen.

Spring was never here in Denmark this year, we went from freezing cold snowy like weather, then 1-2 weeks spring and then directly into a summery like May with 25-28 degrees celsius/77-83 fahrenheit and the summer has not quit since that.

We have had the longest driest summer in a looooooooooong time and 3 months in a row where I have sweated like a pig.

I wish for a colder August/September and some rainy weather.

I'm not built for hot weather.

I'm built for hot, humid, tropical weather, which is why I live in Miami, Florida.  I experienced winters while living in New Hampshire, Boston, New York and Washington D.C. during my school years.  I detest cold weather.

Agreed.

I dislike extreme cold weather too (I'm hard to satisfy...) so below minus celsius/32 fahrenheit is actually not something I'm crazy about, but as you say you can always take on more cloths if it's too cold, but when it's too hot, you need air conditioned rooms everywhere for it to be tolerable to live in, unless you just like to melt.
