    You must subscribe to the Guardian. I used to do so, but cancelled it a while back. Now you have to pay a small subscription fee.

    Sorry, DW!You mean, of course, that there is no free access to the Guardian any more. It´s a pity. Here I can still read the articles.

    I hope BBC is stillavailable. Anyway the strike seems to be over:

    The heat wave we had continues. It is June 2nd, we had a day yesterday with periodic thunder, and it hardly rained at all. On the news the report was that the rain that did fall evaporate before reaching the ground! There are already predictions that the cost of water will go up a lot as a result of the rain-free summer.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oral_rehydration_therapy - Oral Rehydration Therapy is the safest way to deal with this problem. Half a glass a day is enough to preserve health.

    We never had such extended periods of high temperatures in Sweden. It rarely goes beyond 21 celsius. But now we have had a May dominated by highs of 25 celsius, and now in June it goes even higher - 28 celsius.

    At last some rain here. It started during the night.

    And today there will be the Yearly Gay Parade, one of the biggest if not the biggest of the world.

    Here in the Prairies of Canada, all of May was pretty much without rain, and the latter half was so very very hot.... temps of plus 30 Celcius and beyond, if you factor a Humidex factor... I felt so sorry for our grain farmers.... they so badly needed the rain. But the last few days were a lot cooler and yes. Rain did come. Hope it is well with our farmers!

    Yes and by politics. But here in São Paulo the heat is increasing about one grade each year. I still remember when 30ºC was the highest temperature possible. Now it is climbing to peaks of 37ºC.
