Funny, I was thinking that this summer has not been as hot as previous ones.

I am sitting at my computer with the doors open, fans on and no a/c.... very pleasant. The room thermometer shows 33c but it feels a bit cooler than that.

Car thermometers are not reliable darling. They will show a much highter temp than it actually is. Top temp today was 44c

They are no less reliable than any other thermometer, but if your car has been sitting in the blazing sun for hours of course it will show a bit higher than the real temp. Drive for a few minutes and it will come down...

It was 45 in Manama today. Not too bad..

The official temp is taken at the airport in a special box in the shade.
If anybody stuck a thermometer in direct sunlight it would go above 55c.... not a true reading.
Anyway, I love the heat, I get cold if it drops below 30c

and of course that official thermometer will never show it reaching 50deg. maybe 49.9 but never 50

Best keep your 10 minutes suntanning before 10 am or after 4 pm...the sun is waking up with a large C-class solar flare this week !
