With all due respect, we don't call it HOT in California until it's over 40 deg.Celsius. Which it is, today, there. Lucky us, we're enjoying a splendid warm but not scorching 27 here in the hills of southern Creuse.
It was 40C out the front of our house in the Creuse today and more than 30C in the shade at the back. We wilted! The washing dried almost immediately and I had to wear a hat or I would have passed out...
