heatwave

we are experiencing some serious heat lately and it's supposed to last until the end of next week.  Today 30 C, hot and humid.  We went out early in the morning 9ish and it was getting uncomfortable.  On the news today I read that the tar on some of the roads was melting and causing problems.  The gritters were out gritting the road in the afternoon.  Hopefully there won't be any serious problems.
I passed this ad on one of the stores and thought it was appropriate for today.  Stay cool and be cool.  BTW those are real flowers.

  2. Ice cream is good...gin and tonic under the tee even better!

  3. That is very hot indeed, it is always all or nothing here. We have warmth too but only 24 to maybe 28 in the afternoon. With some winds it is very comfortable at the moment.

  11. They have gritted the roads over here and all the cats are confused thinking it is the granules from their litter tray.

    God bless.

  12. I remember when we lived in UK for a year it always amazed me that the tar on the roads would go soft on a 29/30C day. Keep cool Bill ✨

  13. Perfect poster and I will take a cone too. Stay cool if you can. I remember as a kid the tar on the roads would melt and we thought we were in heavan because now we had chewing gum. It's a wonder we didn't pull our teeth out

  20. It's good they look like they have a bit of shade too, loving the mural behind the flowers of the wall.

  21. That's not common for you, is it? I hope it doesn't linger. Perhaps a walk along Donegal Bay may provide relief? And there's always ice cream.

  22. Hi Bill.

    You would take a bite of that tasty Ice cream.
    Here is also very warm and the next few days that is the case again.
