    1. Tomorrow, the forecast calls for "only" 31° C (88° Fahrenheit instead of today's 104° F or 40° C) - I hope so, for all those who are truly suffering under this heatwave.

  2. We're beating the heat here by just hanging out inside.

  3. The dappled shade is a lovely place to sit - we have a shady cool part of our garden where we can escape the heat of the day.

  10. I am a bit jealous of the weather in Vienna. It's 16C in Haninge and a very grey sky.

  14. I've just read about the record heat you're having in Europe. Are the cafés serving iced coffees this summer? We here in Minnesota, on the other hand, are experiencing extremely chilly weather for August. I like it, but my tomatoes do not!
