We're in the middle of a bit of a canicule here at the moment. 39C is predicted for this afternoon. But have no fear it drops to a freezing 35C tomorrow.

Amongst the general instructions, published by the meteo bods, is to look out for old, fragile and infirm people. Where's Jan? (They also include mentally infirm, so count yourself in - Ed)

I presume that's what we refer to 'round these parts as f-ing hot?

I actually had to go to a C/F conversion website (ok I was too lazy to just look it up in a real book) to determine how miserable your weather is.

If it's any consolation, at 10 this morning it was 82F with 100% humidity, and a dew point of 83 here. The heat index was 100F, so it felt just shy of your 39C.

As they say in the south, walk slow, stay in the shade.

100% Humidity. That would kill me. Might as well just sit in the bath.
