Last night the weather forcast was for unusually hot conditions. This morning at 6.50 am, the temperature in the house was 21 degrees Celcius. We decided to stay at home today and relax with lots of drinks to hand.
By 11.30, the temperature was up to 33 degrees - as can be seen from the indoor thermometer.
I went into the garage at this point and looked at the car thermometer. It was just above 20 degrees in the garage - the coolest place at the time. The heating thermostat was in the front room, away from the morning sun, and that was reading 25 degrees - the coolest room in the house.
Of course,the bonus is that we can see the tomatoes ripening in the greenhouse in this heat. It is a good job that I watered them early this morning. Phew!
