Oman: toasty

It’s been a little warm over the last few days. The temperature reached 44C today and the heat index at the moment is 46C. According to Weather Underground (see 'current temperature' link) the maximum temperature on record for today is 45C, so we’re getting near record levels. The forecast is for 46C on Monday. Add another 10-15C to obtain the temperature inside my tin car after work. Deduct about two degrees from this total to get the temperature on arrival at the house after a 45 minute drive with the ineffective air conditioning on full blast sucking all of the power out of the engine.

These temperatures are exceeding those in our new oven, which is so pants it won’t even bring a pan of water to the boil. It’s on the developers’s to-do list.
