At least we're not in Arizona, where it's currently 47 degrees and street signs are melting - http://www.boredpanda.com/hot-arizona-phoenix-heatwave-high-temperature-melting/?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=link&utm_campaign=BPFacebook

We experienced this a number of years ago, we went through Death Valley which got up to 52 degrees!!

Spain was in the high 40s last week.

In the UK you can reliably goto the coast to cool off, but in Italy you go up the mountains.

Don't know where you were in the UK earlier this week Casey Jones but London and the south of England were well into the 30's. So far it's been the hottest June since 1976. Chilly and damp today though.

Yes, good advice to keep a close eye on your pets. My smaller cat is normally pretty good at drinking water but, despite that, has become badly constipated and is now getting laxatives (my first experience of buying pet meds from a pharmacy!) - hopefully the 'magic' will happen today!  ???

Good advice, drinking lots of water - but also keep your 'devices' cool! Leave the smartphone/tablet in a draught - lift the laptop off the table with whatever - encourage any air circulation you can manage.
Look at your cats - they are sheltering under cars! Make sure your pets (like you) have abundant water

Very hot temperatures expected in Abruzzo this weekend.

Just a reminder to drink lots (water is recommended😉). Dehydration can make you really ill.

Well the UK did have a week of temperatures in the high twenties. Usual "Britain Swelters" headlines and pictures of bronze British bodies on Bournemouth beach in the tabloids for a few days but its now back to 20 degs with a cool 16 degs forecast for the weekend!

Whereas Abruzzo has 36 degs forecast for next week, now that's sweltering.

Doesn't often happen but I think ( from the uk news) both those in the Uk and we in Italy are HOT!

I've just wandered out onto my terrace in bare feet and had to hop and skip back in again, smartish, as the soles of my feet sizzled on the paving!

I like to post about it so in the depth of winter, when there's several feet of snow outside, I can remember.

Extreme weather warnings / Marzo / March

As it draws to a glorious close I think we'd have to award March 10 / 10 this year. My wobble memory tells me that last March was very wet & cold and yet 2017's rendition has been warm, sunny, calm & utterly wonderful.

Well done March!
