  1. Wow...BBC is reporting Vienna @ 41 C today. I am surprised that everything is still standing and not melted yet !

    Oh to sit in the shade on mariahilferstrasse and to enjoy ice cream @ Bartolotti.

    Keep cool merisi.

    1. K., melting city? I am scared to look! *giggles*
      By 9 AM I had been shooting for two hours when the sun started to reach the location: I felt as if someone had opened the door and let in Sahara air! Luckily, I am at my desk in an old, properly built and ventilated building. A great blessing!
      Bartolotti in the evening would be nice. ;-)

  2. We, on the other hand, are charmingly cool this morning in the North Carolina mountains. Hint of autumn in the air...

  4. Merisi, it seems as if you've now got a variation of the heat that clung to NYC for almost two weeks in July.

    It's such a relief when that sort of weather front finally moves on. Your front will move. But when?

    1. My mind's a bit fogged up, but it seems to me we are under the heat for two months now. Maybe we get a bit of relief tomorrow, down to 88 from 104F ;-) Otherwise, I'll send you a dozen degrees or so! ;-)

    1. Indeed. I won't complain, except for the fact there is no sitting on a porch and sipping mint julep in the evening (hello, friends!).

  6. It does sound hot, Merisi!! We're getting a little break in the heat, although our heat is rarely that bad! Have a great weekend! Stay cool!
