Yeah I'd be perfectly happy with it being like this. It's the hot evenings when I'm trying to sleep that kill me in the summer months.

Have you mistaken it for English weather? :p

It seems more like spring and autumn last about four days each and winter can pay a visit any time it likes. Mid May to the end of September seem to be consistently sunny and warm from my (albeit limited) experience. Colder winters, but much nicer summers than the UK*.

Until it randomly decides to snow in July for a couple of days...!:D

*in the prairies at least.

It didn't snow today. :D

Although the smowpile in the front garden is still a couple of feet deep.

Jesus. Isnt there some law that if its aboce a certain temp in the workplace you can call it a day or is that an urban myth?

Edit: Nvm its a myth but some unions advise over 30 is unreasonable

One of the buildings I work in regularly - we always get complaints about the heat in the summer and it gets ridiculously hot as it has a large, south facing, white roof and seemingly no AC - when asking about AC we were told the company doesn't have the money to install let alone run any AC - then I found out last summer that we've not only got external fully functional AC units (as pointed out by a new starter) but they are infact running flat out. Externally they appear to be piped into the building but I can't find anywhere they connect to inside and it seems we've been paying a maintenance contract for over 10 years + gassing on it :s (maybe there is an underground bunker I don't know about LOL).

Never did get to the bottom of it - just hit a stonewall talking to anyone higher up.

Usually despise the warm weather, but it's been such an unrelenting winter that I've actually enjoyed the last few days!

Beer garden tonight I think :D

It got so hot in my house last year I actually looked at getting proper aircon installed in the bedrooms.

Then I saw the cost of it :p (about £1200 per room!). Too much for a couple of weeks a year.
