From Boiling To Freezing

Category: Personal,WeatherChrisM @ 12:02 am

Today finally saw the temperature drop a little. The last couple of weeks had seen daytime temperatures hover between 28 and 36 degrees centigrade, where as today was a lot more comfortable, only just break the twenty mark.
Sadly, the last couple of weeks have been missing one heat element – hot water. Because other people in the blocks of flats around us have not been paying their water bills, the company has run out of money to buy fuel (I went to a residents meeting with Ira last week – doubt the others will be paying any time soon). This meant no hot water for showers, washing up etc. Whilst the kettle works fine for mixing in with the cold water for rinsing the dishes, taking a cold shower, especially for washing your hair, is getting a little frustrating. Luckily, Ira’s parents and Dave both have working hot water, so offered their showers, but for now, I’m just taking the opportunity to leave the air con off for a bit longer by chilling out in the shower instead 🙂
