It's hot here! / Hace calor

Yesterday many people began their holidays, and thousands of families prepare to leave Madrid for some days. No wonder they flee, in search of the sand & the sea, or of the mountain breeze, because here in Madrid it's terribly hot. The image was taken at 8:18 PM, and the thermometer indicates 34ºC (94ºF). Imagine how we feel at noon!

Mucha gente comenzó ayer sus vacaciones, y miles de familias se preparan para dejar Madrid durante unos días. No me extraña que huyan en busca de la arena y el mar, o de la brisa de las montañas, porque en Madrid hace un calor espantoso. Esta imagen se tomó a las 8:18 de la tarde y el termómetro marca 34ºC. ¡Imaginaos cómo estamos a mediodía!

That is hot!
They say that with the global heating to come for the next period, the Netherlands will be about as warm as the south of europe, so we'd better start getting ready for temperatures like that.

>Natalie & Anne, people think a warmer climate is something to envy, but now they'll see how wrong they are ;)! Let's survive to this insufferable summer, girls!
>Kala, don't worry, I'll lend you one if you come...or a fan, at least!
>Dutchie, let's try to be optimistic... but enjoy your climate while you can.
>Mark, I'd do just with the sea, I don't even ask for the breeze.
>Caprichi, me iba a Barcelona ahora mismo con calor y todo, vosotros tenéis playa.
>Carol, welcome to the Daily Photo family! How lucky you are, Glasgow is a wonderful city and you're so cool (really and metaphorically)!
