I am bored!!

What is the highest (and lowest) temperature you have seen on the external temp gauge?

Just looked at mine and it is 34.5 degrees. :cool:

Thats parked in the Spring GTG car park which is a bit of a sun trap as we know.:D

The lowest I can remember is -5 ish this winter.

I remember my old Vito van reading 39 degrees at the NEC one year. Ouch!

Hate washing CAR when the sun dries water before you can leather it off.

I have been given some stuff called Rinse Magic that you add to a bucket of water and then rinse the car. I used it a couple of weeks ago and it does make the water run off more so requires less effort with the chamois. It also seems to prevent or lessen the water marks.

But I agree, it's too hot to wash it today. I am sat in the sun, waiting for the phone to ring, looking at a filthy car with a hosepipe next to me, and a pretty young driver asking if there is anything she can do for me!!!

I hate every other Saturday morning!

39 degrees but then I am in Texas. Unfortunately its 39 ish degrees every day now and will be until the end of September. Hate the heat - does not even cool down in the evening so will still be high 80's/90's at 11pm. Love the winters and spring/autumn over here though so cannot really complain...

We've stopped shopping at the superstore 10 miles away as by the time we get back to the house yoghurts etc have already turned.

Sadly there have been at least 3 small children killed so far this summer in Dallas / Fort Worth area when their parents or carers have forgotten about them and left them in the car - goes to 90 degrees within about 5 minutes of switching off air conditioning...... Horrible.
