    Is it me or is it getting hotter?

    Anyone up here in Chiang Mai got an idea of the temperature up here today?
    It feels like it must be in the mid 40's, and getting hotter!

    I have been in a sweat all day here on my computer, and watching my wife working hard outside makes me feel even hotter again.

    Its got me as well G2bH This year here in BKK no rain and right at 40 each day. The worst part is 7:30pm and having it be 33. Its not the year here though it the lack of shade trees due to the flood. When this heat breaks its going to be like the start of an Indian monsoon. It has been so hot and dry the klong behind my house that was a lake during the flood is going dry. Only the second time in two years I have seen that.

    It was hot today while the sun was out. Broke a sweat just taking the garbage out after lunch. Probably over 40. Funny thing to me is it still gets so cool at night.

    I reckon I'm working on a record high power bill this month by using the air con so much.

    It's always as hot as this at this time of year. That's why the Songkran festival is now.
    Mind you, I think the ozone layer being depleted lets in more U.V.

    Ain't just over there lads. This year in Perth we have had a stupid summer with temps in the 40's and screaming winds. Getting worse every year.

    Getting to be the normal but now in April and May its bloody lovely with Autumn setting in.

    I thought it was just me, here in Sattahip, today felt like the hottest so far this year. Overall though, the summer has not been really bad.

    Yes a hot one today but thankfully with no smog and clear skies, 35.8 C inside the lounge just now, quickly ran back to the aircon in the office

    I've got a thermometer in the shade in front of my house and it said 37.4 at about 4:30 this afternoon. I think that's the hottest I've seen it so far this year.

    Extremely hot here in Pattaya but a nice breeze to provide some air-conditioning.

    Seem to be more intense sun this year than last year. March, April, and May are always hot then the humid build up before the rains. But better than cold rain and snow and ice. I hate that stuff.

    I would imagine the freemantle dr. in the evening would be welcome but those big northwest/easterly's must carry some heat.

    I know you;re a fireman Terry - I was in Canberra during those huge bushfires. It was something else. All sommuer we were getting crazy hot northwesterly winds, it was like a fanned furnice, then BOOM! Up went the national parks where they let eaucalypt forests store fuel like tinder for 70 odd years (in an environment shape by man where regular burning is necessary to manage the land).

    Having played golf last week and again today in the North-East i can confirm that the humidity levels are incredibly high, 80% + today. Tee off at 0800hrs finishing before noon and drenched in sweat after the first 2 holes.

    Plenty of water and energy drinks were required to complete the round with a couple of ice cool beers gratefully accepted at the 19th following our outstanding efforts

    A sprinkling of water over the caddies was well received during the Songkhran festivities although unfortunately not much chance of a wet t-shirt glimpse under those uniforms i'm afraid.

    Masochists only need apply

    true, my last night and a good dinner lined up, then a few drinks at a local pub

    what more could anyone ask, besides the inestimable company of a Smeg
