I worked for the Australian National Railways in the 1970's, recovering useable wooden sleepers after they'd been replaced by concrete ones. We were allowed to knock off work if the temperature exceeded 42 C. However, there was nowhere to go in the Outback so we carried on working, not that we did much in those temperatures!

However, when someone complains that it's too hot at 28 degrees, I allow myself a wry smile.

I'm fine. Prefer the heat than the cold. My genes are partly Maltese, and don't burn in the sun, just go brown.

Went running at 10am this morning, just drink plenty of water and it's ok.

Nice and cool in the office all day, whilst the display on my phone reminded me that it was 30°C outside. It was a bit warm walking back to the station this evening, then a non-air-conditioned train, then into my air-conditioned car. And now sitting in a rather warm house with my phone display reminding me that it's still 30°C outside despite it being 8:30pm. I must admit I prefer cold rather than warm weather. Give me a nice ski-slope rather than a hot, sweaty beach any day!

But by the weekend I guess we'll be looking back wondering where summer went to!

That is true. Because it is never hot enough long enough in the UK for your body to acclimatise

Just waited until the evening to go to the field...made a nice change not to be fighting a 15 - 20 mph wind...

That is the problem here, getting aclimatised.

I always bore people by telling them that in Aden it was too cold to go swimming in the cool season...when it got down below 80F

Most places further south are way warmer than the UK and more humid. It's no problem flying models in 40C+. There are several advantages. e.g. Exhaust grease cleans off the airframes far more easily than in cool climates, and you don't have to use the cylinder heads of your ic engines as handwarmers!
