It was toasty today, in the 90's. I forget how high exactly in American degrees, but I looked at a weather site in the later afternoon (which may have been past the peak), and it was 36 degrees Celsius.
I didn't have the air conditioning on once though today. I kept the windows closed in the afternoon, and figured at some point I would feel warm and put it on for an hour or two, but never did.
My apartment faces east, I think this helps to keep the heat down as the sun is off it by noon. But basically, it has to be a lack of humidity. I know if it was 36 back home, I'd be dying in the heat, but here I didn't even break a sweat once, even when I was walking to and from the pool.
I saw a funny photo on the internet today of a celebrity (I think it was Britney Spears but I'm not sure, the name wasn't on it) wearing those Ugg boots in this weather! The thing is, I saw the very same thing on someone yesterday at the grocery store! High heat (in the 90's), and this woman has fleece-lined tall leather boots on.
I may never fit in. I still have myself slated to wear sandals in January, although I brought some shoes just in case. The locals will probably be in parkas. Expensive, designer parkas.
