Nothing amazing but thought some people might be interested in what's happening over here in the UK with our heatwave...

REALLY???
I have never, ever heard or read something remotely similar over here. And i'm on the continent and it's warmer over here (also for a longer period of time).
You guys know how to construct roads???
I'm chindeep in this mudbog and every desperate attempt to move my stuck legs only drives me deeper in. The thick mud slowly swamps my waders and i have nothing to hold onto. I'm so feeling home.

In Australia, a road resurfacing job gone wrong resulted in a tarmac turning into just tar that really messed up vehicles:

LOL......it's a pothole. You can see the patch where it was (badly) repaired before. The moron that wrote this should be put to work on a road crew for a month as punishment. :lol:
