A degree of humility — 12 Comments

  1. ” The fucking central heating had powered up into its default state”We  have storage heaters which means knowing a week before hand how the weather is going to be…with certainty which is a nice trick if you can do it. So here in Norfolk , where the weather is as stable as a Brexiteur…we can go from driving frozen rain or ‘liquid sunshine’ as they call it here to this: and then wonder why the landlord fitted a sauna in our living room and didn’t think to charge us.(and your ‘buttons’ still aren’t working right).

    • Yes – we suffer a lot from liquid sunshine here too.  We used to have a boiler that had to be manually lit and took half a day to heat the house, so by the time the room was comfortable it was time to go to bed.  So we got a new boiler which is all automatic and [unfortunately] very silent but it does have to be reprogrammed every time there is a power cut.

      And my buttons work beautifully thanks.

  2. Bugger!  Now they don’t.  It seems the buttons only work when replying to a comment.  Very weird…

  3. We’ve had 3 weeks of heat and humility over here in Frogland – temps averaging at 35 degrees of new money and thunderstorms every other night (with just a dozen drops of rain) which is not normal so early on as technically it is still Spring until Wednesday! Some of us light sleepers i.e. me and the dogs, were kept awake most of last night by the farmers’ (irrigation) irritation system pumping away to the beat of some heavy metal band – think “We Will, We Will Rock You!” for 12 hours! If the CH came on today murder might be committed……..

    • Ah yes…  I remember Froogy Hoidays where I had banks of fans around the bed going full blast and I still couldn’t sleep.

      I like hot days, and long may they continue, but I really like a cold bedroom.  The colder the better.

  4. 30C in England and 30C in Hong Kong are two kettles of very different fishes. In England 30C is unbearable. Why? Because of all the moaning and groaning which goes on, the very opposite of the moaning and groaning which goes on when the temperature goes below 5C. In Hong Kong no-one cares about 30C and 98% humility. It’s normal. It would kill the average Brit.

  5. 33 C in Blighty as I left the airfield this afternoon. Still too warm when I got to the social club so had to drink lager instead of beer. Then fired up sauna to complete the hotness theme…

  6. Convert 20 degrees Celsius to degrees Fahrenheit:T(°F) = 20°C × 9/5 + 32 = 68 °F 
    7 °C 44.6 °F
    8 °C 46.4 °F
    9 °C 48.2 °F
    10 °C 50.0 °F
    20 °C 68.0 °F
    21 °C 69.8 °F room temperature
    30 °C 86.0 °F

    and 0 = 32 F. Wait until late November for that joy.
