While we have our second heatwave this summer I was wondering how people like Erel, Ilan and members from countries like Australia, Brasil etc are dealing with hot temperatures. Yesterday we crossed 40°C for the first time ever in Belgium and that's meassured in an official temperature box in the shade. So it's 45+ in the direct sun. Just going outside is like getting a hit of a hammer and sweat breaks out from just walking around. Inside in the living room it's currently 28.5C at noon so it will increase a little and that's after putting a white plastic UV protective cover on the glass dome in the kitchen. It's the first time I did this if not it would be 30+ inhere for sure. As high temps are rare here most people don't have airco in their house. I have a portable one in my sleeping room which is just under the roof top. But with a velux with roller shutter that's closed from when I get up it's still extremely hot inthere at night. The old glass wool is probably the cause here. Maybe PIR/PUR plates are better here but I've read that once the heat is in the PIR/PUR doesn't let it out either. Anyway... all this leads to a drop in motivation/activities and besides reading this forum and some news sites not much is happening here since Monday The only positive about it is that I switched from cola zero to grenadine and drink a lot of non carbonic acid water (I can't drink it without some taste in it like grendaine) and have a less blown up feeling. Maybe some weight loss aswell as the urge to eat ain't what it used to be either. For some of us this is usual and maybe for several months per year so respect for that.
