I'll try xx

Way not good, daveyboy, you just be very, very careful, my friend.

Tell me about it if the Greek government are worried

Really serious then. Just you be careful.

They only make these announcements if things are really serious

This is the first time they have had to make an announcement like this one though so guess they are expected a long spell of excessive heat

At least you have been told, just be prepared.

I am

It’ll be a public health announcement , plus with hospital dealing with covid they will be trying to keep emergencies low

And yes guess so but they have opened up the old hospital to deal with the heat cases something not even done during the covid so definitely worrying sounds

Probably to isolate covid & non covid .. it’s done for infection control

The old hospital will only treat cases heat related and will have minimal staff

Blimey please take care the heat here in uk nearly finished me off I was one sweaty pig 😆🤣😂 x

It's bloody crazy and people say global warming doesn't exist

Oh definitely 😹😹😹

I had a friend in Greece who used to put her head in the fridge for a bit if she thought she might spontaneously combust!

Well who knows could be possible but I think you would need to put the other end in the fridge 😂😂😂

Could be uncomfortable!

Not if you took all the shelves out first 😂😂😂

I should have thought of that!

A bit of forward planning 😂😂😂

Stay safe take it seriously

I got no choice but to take the situation seriously im right in the middle of it 😃 its 8 .15 and already high 30s

We had a couple of extremely hot days here recently. It was just awful. Hoping you can keep cool x

If last night is anything to go by think I'm going to be well basted well roasted and ready for dishing up in a day maybe two 🤣🤣🤣

Not good 😳 xx

Nope definitely not

Good day to you yes thanks for the message yes i think i am already connected to water board mate already on 5 pint water 2 of them are for medy i take nyou need to look after your self over next few day keep smiling G R

I'm on LTRs number four hopefully it will work out

good day again please dont panic try & stay clarm take small deep breathe if you have a paper bag use that for breathing in & out i find that helpt me / G R

That's where I'm going wrong I'm putting my head in the bag and taking deep breaths

its only like blowing a ballon up that what i was shown it take a little while to get breathing write but i did it G R

Can't blow up a balloon I start coughing like hell. My lungs are totally shot it 👍🏼

Unfortunately the paper bag has no affect with my condition I'm too far advanced unfortunately 👍🏼

Oh lord, it gets worse and worse. Hope you're OK Dave. I've been praying to the good lord to send rain to my poor parched garden- I'll ask him to divert it to you instead. xxx

Thank you I was asking the big guy for the same thing myself

Always worth knowing.

Oh yes

Stay safe Daveyboy🙏 , sit it out in the shower !!

Just need someone to shovel in more Ice as it melts 😂😂😂

Crikey! That is so scary. Please take care.

Tell me about it but I can't do anything about it mother nature is in control 🙂

...." WARM SHOWERS " ...IN THIS HEAT ...?

That's what the Greek government says you should have not cold ones , they didn't say anything about putting two bags of ice on the shower floor and sitting in it though 😂😂😂

I think the theory is that if your body temperature is very high the shock of cold water will kill you but look on the bright side , at least you get to choose 😬. Seriously, Is it any cooler now ? Is there any indication of how long the ridiculous temperatures are going to last ?

No idea and it's still 42 now and it is ten in the evening

Take care Dave - That happened to us here in the UK last week so understand what you will be going through

The temperature you had was what we were getting before our heatwave 😂

least there no heat anymore -usual UK weather

Yes I guess so rain hail snow high winds thunderstorms and a bit of sun and I guess that was just today 😂😂👍🏼👍🏼

That’s awful, how hot has it been getting there?

Daveyboy1963 in reply to jackdup

Well let's put it this way before our hottest part of the day it was hitting 46 / 48 degrees I've not checked the thermometer outside the pharmacy which is accurate no one listens to Google or weather on TV . Thermometers outside don't lie 😂😂😂😂
