hey there! I'm sorry, but I have to ask, how high did the temperature get?
Hi, it got up to 34c at its hottest. I know that probably sounds like nothing - a cool breeze even - to some, but bearing in mind the average summer temp in Britain is about 24-25 max, that’s 10 degrees more than normal. Couple that with the fact we have a naturally colder climate here, we insulate our houses to keep the heat *in*, and don’t have air-conditioning in our homes, so it’s flipping miserable when it gets this hot.
Sorry for the long response, I just feel like I need to explain the background sometimes, because some people scoff whenever we Brits say it’s hot. It’s all relative.
