I'm burning up here in my lab. After a nice cool spring, summer has come all at once, and the last couple of days has been 38 C. We only get a few weeks over 35 each summer. Usually it's cooler up here in Jerusalem than the rest of the country, where there's also high humidity, but there's an atmospheric phenomenon that occurrs occasionally to reverse this. The hottest I've known was 44. Man, Imay go home. It's 33 in the lab (fantastic air conditioning), and some of the solvents are starting to boil in their bottles. Last night when I went out at 11 it was 28. I'm not built for this - I'm a poor pallid Brit. Back in the Old Country I uesd to pass out if it went over 25. I have a clifornian friend, however, who seems to think this is Spring! Can anyone beat 38 today? If so, I bet your A/C is better than mine.
