Heatwave..

Recommended Posts

I've moved a matress downstairs to sleep at night. The top floor is so hot that I thought it may help.

When the sun goes down, get the windows open and keep them open overnight until about dawn, then shut all the doors and windows at dawn. This will help get the house down to the lowest possible temperature. Then keep all doors and windows shut all day to keep the heat out.

And the curtains closed during the day.

Last year we bought a massive paddling pool, apparently for the kids but it's been worth it's weight in gold for us lately.

It's very British to comment on the weather all of the time, but staging major demonstrations about the weather takes it to the next level!

Apparently most nations talk about the weather a similar amount, when measured by changeability. Our weather is more unpredictable, so naturally we remark on it more.

Maybe they have a very valid point and should have been listened to a long time ago. 

Anyway, to the catastrophists. Yes, we know it's dangerously hot and how to behave in such weather. 

To the kippers. No, we're not a nation of snowflakes. It is ****ing dangerously hot.

They absolutely do have a valid point, but in my opinion they haven't been improving awareness, but damaging sympathy for their activitism by choosing demonstrations that in no way have anything to do with climate change: Disrupting trains and disrupting cyclists in the Tour de France, for example.

Bit broad brush there lyb? It’s like saying “we” are all cocaine snorting hooligans because a few football fans fit that description.

Public perception of the protests is broad brush; nobody says 'oh that protest was off key, but that one seemed reasonable'. All the protests are for the same cause and will be lumped together in most people's eyes.

All of the protests are organised. They should choose their targets more intelligently and think about whether its an appropriate activity to protest for the theme of the protest.

Fair enough, I read “they” as anyone supporting climate change protests, it looks like you specifically mean Extinction Rebellion or similar. Although I think they would argue it is now so urgent they need to be extreme, and there is something in that. But I agree, the effect on the perception of the public may be more negative than desired.

In the heatwave of 1976, we built igloos out of white dog s.hit for shelter from the sun and we fanned each other with our bell bottoms and big collars.

Back in the day when Bruce Rioch was our manager, the first game of the new season was at CR with temperatures in the mid-90s.  In his pre-match interview he said "I shall make sure the players drink plenty before the game and I would advise the fans to do the same".

Probably the most unnecessary piece of advice ever given . . .

Luckily Cornish granite houses are cool and I can pop out into the garden and pop back every now and then. Having lunch now. Cream Crackers as I can't bear the thought of anything heavier.

Medical advice says avoid alcohol.

You'll notice there's only one can. That's practically avoidance! Theres also a 1.5 litre bottle of water in there. I wasn't allowed to get another can until I'd drank all of that and filled it up again. It sort of worked.

Just got clarity - does its weight in gold include the water? I hope so, Kerrrrrching!
