Caught the German DW Daily hearing the news of the heat wave today, 46.2 in Paris, Germany and throughout Europe.

That's a heat wave I would not want to experience.

To our forum members in Europe be safe stay hydrated and keep cool.

Hi Gary,

thanks a lot for thinking of us.
Yes, it is pretty warm over here, but luckily yesterday was said to be the pinnacle of the heat wave at least in Germany. Record was 109°F in northwestern Germany (near Jennekes place in the Netherlands), at my home town we had exactly 100°F. It has been 96°F in the office in the afternoon as it has been pretty hot for days and my office is directly under the roof not really cooling down during the night time...
Right now (7:45 AM) it is nice 82°F and we are not expecting much more than 90°F for today.

Again, thanks for your sympathy.
Barney

Yep, hot over here in the netherlands. Around 40 degrees. Right now at he end of the afternoon still 37, sunny. Airco in the car is nice. 😊

Baby-sitting the aquarium with fish of my little nephew is a crime. Constant battle to get it down to 25 degrees... :S

Stay safe and hydrated everyone. Weird weather for sure, and it looks like July was the hottest ever recorded beating out the July of 2016 which was the previous record.

Yes, at least in Germany, but it has been true for other European countries as well.
I am glad that thanks to a wise man I now know that it is just a hoax:
