    Possibly. This weather doesn't happen frequently enough for me to justify the outlay, or the electricity bill, at home. If I am too hot at night, the duvet gets swapped for a sheet, the windows are opened wide, and ... if it's really muggy... we have a fan.

    The fan got used one day last year and hasn't been used yet this summer.

    Air con at work, and a fan at home but that's used mainly for the dog! Middle son is off back on ship this week, don't fancy the heat he's going to have to work in as he's an engineer and will be stuck in the engine rooms with 4 gas turbines running :$ good way to loose weight....

    Air con in the server room, open windows in the office, but the office windows are south-facing so we get the sun all day. Blinds keep it a bit cooler, but, really, I come alive in this weather.

    I could quite happily deal with 25C+ all year round.

    All windows open at home, no problem.

    Red-headed, pale skinned, not able to cope with heat. About to leave for a HIIT class in a studio with no air con, just 4 fans above head-height that do little to help.
    Door into air-conned gym will be open but again, not much help. The mirrors will be steamed up in about 15 minutes.

    I survived! (just). But then I had to go and play with the school orchestra at the school summer music concert and being on the stage was ridiculously hot - how the kids managed I do not know. The sweat was dripping down my face after about 4 minutes.

    Still, another class tomorrow - high level aerobics in an un-airconned sports hall - yay!

    Surely the joy of shiny new hardware will make the heat bareable, though? :P

    Will you be working all summer to make up for the lack of work during term time? ;-)

    A friend of mine who's been married twice, each time to a red-head (both called Katherine, but that's a different story) told me that red-heads have one less layer of outer skin than non-red-heads, which accounts for the paler skin. I took his word for it, as he seemed to be an authority on red-heads.
    @witch Do you know if it's true?

    I've been told that as well but can find nothing to confirm it and I think it is an urban legend. My doctor once said that we bleed more, heal more slowly and get infected more than other people though.
    Found this too:
    Redheads may be at higher risk of melanoma even without sun - Los Angeles Times
    which tells me I am more likely to get skin cancer
    Great!

    I have Auburn Hair which is more light brown now and the heat always gets me! aswell as that i am a type 1 diabetic and the sun seams to really take down my sugar levels which can be a good thing as then I can have a ice lolly or something else i am not ment to eat much of.

    I am not sure about the skin thing but when you think about it.........

    Barely slept at all last night because of the heat (had to make myself a bed downstairs, still no sheets required) and this is Day 2 of Ofsted. Mentally and physically completely drained, every movement feels like a huge effort, short of breath and constant pins and needles in my left hand. I think I'm slowly breaking.

    Sun + Ofsted = Ephelyon dies.
