How is the weather where you live?

Just wondering... it's 30+ C today, even hotter yesterday.... My office temps also read 30+C, no airconditioning.... My TFT plasma screen is starting to boil..

Expecting some heavy thunderstorms and rain next couple of days........ nice when things cool down a bit again... Ah.. shoot, always complaining when it's too hot or too cold.

The heat must really be getting to me since I'm talking about the weather hehe

Where do you live in Holland, I've been there many times, almost every weekend during my College time- Windsurfing was just better in Holland than in Germany.
Crazy enough, haven't done much windsurfing since I live in Rhode Island- the Ocean State- just don't have the time.

The Ocean State huh?! Sounds great!!

Yeah, windsurfing can be pretty cool around here if it wasn't for all the rain that falls here. Wind enough tho....

Sorry but I can't reveal my true name and residence because then I would have to kill you!

Let's say I'm living in the south but not the most southern province/state hehehe

Temps here have been in the 38C to 41C range for the last week.
Cooler in the evening at least. Humidity usually between 20% to 25%.

I don't know about the temperature outside (the sensor is inside my computer where it keeps an eye on my SCSI harddisk drive ), but my room gets up to about 30C during the day and even with windows and doors standing wide open it's still 27C at 10 o'clock in the evening!

I wouldn't mind if it chilled a bit and got down to a nice 23-24C though ... neither would my computer

Oh yeah, feel free to call my a geek for placing the outside sensor inside my computer ... I also set up a couple of spare 80mm fans I had lying around - they now keep ME cool

It may be the smallest state, but it has the longest name.
Rhode Island official name - "the State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations."

But you probably knew that aleady.
