Still Hot

CIMG0629-001

This is just to tell you I’m still “here”. It’s still much too hot to spend any more time than absolutely necessary at the computer, though.

And unfortunately there are more urgent things to do with that time just now than blog – to do with getting ready to put The House on the market. We met with an estate agent last week and now there are questionnaires and inspections and getting the place cleaned etc etc. (No we are not doing it all ourselves but there are still things to do in order to get others to do things!) My brother has gone home but will be back next week.

Saturday and Sunday afternoons we had massive thunder and lightning and rain here to cool things down a little bit, temporarily… but not enough to have lasting effect. Today still hot, and the humidity higher – but no thunder to bring relief. Phew!

Cheerio for now!

  2. No matter how competent the estate agents etc. are, there is still plenty to do for whoever undertakes something so big as selling a house.

    It's been very humid here for the past few days, too; temperatures have been higher before, but this kind of humid heat seems to be affecting people a lot more.

    1. There's certainly a lot involved, Meike!
      About the weather, I agree that humid heat does tend to feel worse. Another factor is that long-lasting heatwaves warm up the buildings so that it keeps getting hotter indoors, and there is no "escape" to be found anywhere (except in places with air condition - but very few private homes here have that, and a standard rental apartment certainly doesn't).

  3. Oh my, your picture is gorgeous! We are getting rain, and last night was a tornado watch! So glad it never came about. I hope you have fans or air conditioning.

    1. Thanks. No air conditioning (very rare in private homes here - except perhaps among the very rich, which I can't say I know any, so I wouldn't really know!). But have three fans going around the clock since a couple of weeks now... The problem is really that the heat indoors keeps building up in a longlasting period of hot weather.
