Only 38C right now. And the wind that's blowing feels like an open oven

South Africa : RAIN!! LOTS OF RAIN!!! *cue kids playing in the mud etc etc*
Eskom : Sorry guys, loadshedding due to "Wet coal".

Hey! Coal stays wet for a very long time, y'know. Up to 2000 years in some cases - as far back as the arrival of Jan van Witbek.

I went out cycling at 06:00 this morning, from Sasolburg to Parys and back. A round trip of about 80km. On my way back to Sasolburg, out on the open road (R59), my Garmin cycling computer recorded a temperature of just below 36°C!o_O One of the hottest cycling rides I have had in a while.

Are you doing the 94.7...degrees celsius?

Clocked that in the middle of summer last year at about 11am in the Cradle. This heat is really crazy and I am glad I am not training for 94.7 or any Ironman.

That was going to be my next question.
It wasn't that hot at 06:00 when I started out. But I did know it was going to be a scorcher that day , so I took it fairly easy, did the 80.7km in 03:05:16, avg speed of 26.1 km/h

All that resulted from the rain yesterday seems to be mosquitoes. There's a few hovering around my apartment today and I don't ever get them.
