Exclamation Phew !

I was thinking about going into London to buy an E-P3 at the Cameraworld PENDAY - But having sweltered through a shoot in North London yesterday, the thought of going on the underground in this heat, was too much.

If it's 30 out here in the sticks, what must it be like in town...

Re: Phew !

Although it's sweltering here in S.W. Herts., the paddling pools in the local park are now closed. All through the cold and wet August, they were open!

I cannot help but wonder if there is anyone left in local authority that can make a decision that is in the best interest of the people they serve...

Re: Phew !

I, however, could not hold out and did visit Camera World. I have bought/ordered a EP3 twin lens kit, (they had sold out so i will have to wait).

Re: Phew !

What! 30 degres? It's just a warm day for us. When it goes above 40 degrees, it's a good idea to stay cool where ever you can & hope there's no strong wind with it.

Re: Phew !

Agree with Ross - I want 30 everday. Anything less is just Spring.

Re: Phew !

Our high in this part of Ontario was 10C yesterday and it's 5.6C this morning.

30C is not unusual for us in the summer but living around the Great Lakes the humidity can make it feel like 40+.
