The heat haters club 2022


Message added by Paul,

This thread is for those who don't enjoy the heat to discuss that and offer support to each other through the summer months. If you don't feel similarly and don't have any empathy for those who do, please don't post in here.

    I hope this thread is ok!

    It's for us folk who hate anything over 23c. 

    Enjoy (or not)

    I’ll join you in here @Dami.  Don’t mind contending with heat for a couple of days at a time if we get a good old thunderstorm but that doesn’t look all that promising for my region.  I’ve just had the customary fight to get the sun umbrella up and stabilised over the cat pen to keep the worst of the sun off them.

    Not that I actually hate it but I can't physically tolerate heat so don't really look forward to it ☹️

    Anything over 23?

    I'm struggling to get anything over 13 degrees. Miserable.

    I’d be happy at 24c, over that and it’s a bit uncomfortable but having said that I lived in the Middle East and it rarely got below 24c even in winter but aircon was everywhere.

    Has to be the most pointless thread ever, seeing as you're going to get about 12 hours of "heat". 

    oh so you won't be joining?  It's going to be way past that 22c you prefer on your profile. 

    Take care.

    13-22 are my ideal temperatures is what that means. That doesn't mean that I find anything over 22 "hot". Far from it. Perhaps, 32. Which it won't be here, anyway.

    I actually dislike heat, but our definition of what constitutes heat differs.

    I'm not writing a rule here. If you can deal with 32+ and find anything other too hot then fine. We all have different intolerances to different temperatures - for example my husband gets quite ill when it's hot. I know on the SE thread others do as well.

    If you think it's a 'useless' thread then please feel free to ignore it

    I love the heat, but with a caveat - only if I’m not working or doing anything strenuous.

    When I’m at home relaxing in the garden or at the beach or something, I adore it.

    sadly, I’m going to be in the office from tomorrow and it’s an old, tin box with no air con. It will be thoroughly miserable in the afternoon.

    I remember during that brief hot spell in 2019, the thermometer in the office got up to 48 degrees and it was torture - And we’re still not allowed to wear shorts for some arbitrary reason.

    No Air Conditioning in the office? That sounds like torture.

    Pretty sure that breaks some sort of workplace regulations does it not?

    Apparently not! There's no maximum working temperature - only a minimum working temperature.

    It's awful though - if it starts making me feel unwell then i'm going to go home. I'm not putting myself at risk because of some weird, arbitrary rule.

    Nope.  We were the same working in a private hospital.  Upstairs offices had no aircon and the windows only opened an inch or so.  To make matters worse we were still expected to wear a stuffy old uniform.

    Its not heat thats the problem...its the humidity...

    28c in low humidity is more pleasant then 20c with high humidity...

    yep exactly..anything over 25c in the UK becomes a nuisance anything over 30c becomes unbearable..here though it can 30c and its fine..only once it gets above 32-33c do you start to notice it..last year it got to 37c with a gentle breeze no real problems... if its 37c in the UK forget about it..im sat in a bathtub of ice cold water with the curtains pulled

    I’ll only pop in if the daytime max exceeds 34c.

    OMG, hope not to see you in here too often then!  No offence but you know what I mean lol!  

    I will raise my max to 27C, unless the humidity is high and I may then have to lower.

    I do not know is the caused by the warmth but I feel so very tired, more than normal and my hips and knees are very painful.  I am waiting for a long downpour of rain that lasts more than one hour.

    Same here. I’ll be stuck on a sweaty London Underground train as I commute back and forth between work and home on Friday. 
     

    Still, I’ve been off work since June 1st, so I shouldn’t grumble.

    Had a interview today and can wave goodbye to the security job now. 
     

    Will have more time free to do the side gig as well.
