interesting question and I wonder how the blond Brit will answer it.
Actually I believe that the advance effects of Global warming have been producing record high tempEratures the last few years
in the UK.I think I heard that in 2003 the very highest reading ever seen but on a not necesarily reliable recording device was
about 102 degrees F,then this year the highest ever July temp was something like 97 F
I am pretty sure that in the 50's when I were a lad anything over 80 was very rare.
Of course air conditioning in anything but stores is virtually unheard of,and I used to suffer as a representative out on sales calls wearing the regulation long trousers shirt with collar and of course a tie .Phew!
It was therefore agony after each customer visit to get back into a roasting car, but car aircon was growing in popularity.
I think some years ago all models of a certain Peugeot had aircon as standard.The last car I bought at an auction was locked when I looked at it but I noticed a sliding control against a temperature indication, and bought it on a hot day.
Imagine my disappointment when I discovered that it was not aircon but a constant heater outlet temperature control.Dang!

Oh, just lovely. I'm being sarcastic. Tonight it's supposed to get down to 28 degrees here in Northern Maine. It didn't get much above 55 today. I'm afraid the cold, hard winter is about to settle in and freeze us Mainers to the bone, and we won't thaw out until spring... mid to late April.
