Turkey’s people have tried almost every way to escape the boiling temperatures of this year’s summer. 3 youngsters found one of the most interesting of them in Adana, in southern Turkey, where an egg fries in just moments on an asphalt road…

 

Turky’s people have been trying every way to escape the boiling temperatures of this year’s summer. 3 youngsters had found one of the most interesting of methods last week in Adana; they were seen cooling off on office armchairs in an irrigation channel of General Directorate of State Hydraulic Works. And in south eastern province of Şanlıurfa, where temperatures hit some 45 degrees, people rush to an air conditioned Hasan Paşa Mosque, not to pray but to escape the baking-hot…

The escapers enjoyed the coolness of the place lying ‘in each others arms under frowning looks of those who arrived at the mosque but could not find a space to pray.

It has been predicted that 2010 would be the hottest in last 130 years back. I think it has already come true.

Interesting. I´m in the San Francisco, California area and we have had the coldest summer in years. It´s been around 10 to 15 C here during the day.

That´s interesting as well. That should be your winter average, right?

 

OK, I see SF has some nice temperature avarages during the year. Not so cold, not so hot.

 

Problem here (Istanbul) is humidity. If it´s not too high, we can handle 30 to 35 C easily. The winds are blowing from the North and carrying humidity from the Black Sea constantly. And it will continue to blow from the North for a couple of days more.

We don´t have a hot air problem here in my part of Scotland. Not since Tony Blair resigned that is. Our record summer temperature since records began is 29C. It is fairly cool in winters as well.

8 years ago, I spent the whole August in Scotland.  I remember that it was a cold and rainy Sunday in August and I warmed my hands by putting on a heated radiator in a museum.

Where I live (The Republic of Ireland, right on the border with Northern Ireland) we´ve had a few weeks of madly hot weather. it was about 30C. Now it´s around 20C and it´s an exceptionally hot summer. But the last winter was exceptionally cold. nobody here is used to having subzero temperatures for over 2 weeks, all pipework is outside houses so it´s no wonder there were problems with water freezing in the pipes.

In Poland we´re used to having -30 in winter and +35 in summer, but I prefer milder, Irish climate. I don´t even think it rains as much as they say...

Actually, when a high pressure system brings a heat wave on a region or country, it starts to lose its power in a week but anormally, for more than 20 days, we have been suffering the heat of this high system.

 

They say that it is because Monsoon rains of this year. According to scientists, Monsoon has expanded its sphere of influence and created a huge pressure difference between itself and non-Monsoon climates and so, balance was broken. So, flood disasters in Pakistan and surrounding areas and extreme heats in Eastern Europe are linked to same reason.

 

 

thx
