Saturday 9: Heatwave

1. It’s July. How has the weather been where you are?
Hot, humid, thunderstorms. I like the last one but I hate the heat and humidity.

2. What is the best way for you to beat the heat?
Be anywhere with airconditioning. I have lived without aircon all my life until we moved to the USA. Australia is one of the hottest countries yet airconditioning is only affordable by the rich!

3. “It’s not the heat, it’s the humidity.” Do you buy that?
I hate both equally so it doesn't matter either way.

4. Do you like hot tubs or saunas?
Not really.

5. What’s the hottest you’ve ever been?
It got to 46 degrees Celsius in Perth once, that's 114 Fahrenheit. I thought I was going to die. And no airconditioning either.

6. How many times do you hit the beach in the summer?
If I have a choice, none. Especially now we live 4 hours away from the coast. I am not a beach person.

7. When you were a kid, what did you do in the summer?
Went to the beach! Haha, I grew up in the tropics of Australia which is pretty much beach, beach, beach.

8. Surfing. Have you ever gotten on a surfboard? Body surf?
I don't get in the ocean if I can help it.

9. What’s your favorite summer song?
Surfin' USA - The Beach Boys

We didn't have air conditioning in Germany either. Not even in stores. It really sucked.

The Beach Boys... wow

Yikes- 114???
Over 100 and it all feels the same to me. Kinda like below 0 and it all feels the same.

Wow, I would never have guessed that air conditioning was something affordable for only the wealthy in Australia! I know that some parts of Australia can get quite hot and assumed that everyone used the a/c to get comfortable.

I love that song by the Beach Boys!

I am not a beach person which is weird for someone from Santa Barbara. I love the Beach Boys also! :)
