I have noticed however that temperature is relative. What is freezing to me is balmy to the English. An example of this: Last week when we were having lovely weather, not hot, not cold, just pleasant, I had an English friend of mine complain about how hot it was. It was maybe 70 degrees. Now to me, hot it 95 degrees in the shade and it being so hot that your eyelids are sweating. Oh you didn't know that your eyelids can sweat? Well they can. Live in the deep south of the US and you will experience it more than once. Actually you might experience it every single day in August.
The English friend then commented about how his nephew and him had gone swimming in their backyard pool over the weekend. Swimming? It isn't hot enough for swimming! You go swimming when it is so hot that your skin is about to boil off. If you go swimming now you will catch a chill! My perception, yet again. I however have been informed that it does not get "hot" here and there is little chance that my skin will boil off and my eyelids will certainly not sweat.
