Try the 90 days of the devil

For info :

"....the hot and humid desert climate is challenging, to say the least; the harsh Saudi summer begins in March and only ends in October. During this period, temperatures can range from 95°F (35°C) in the cooler months to an unbearable 122°F (50°C) in the months of June, July and August (known as “the 90 days of the Devil”). "

Please have a beer for me :)

Too damned right. Think of Phoenix, making wine there with more humidity :D

Laying wine down for three weeks is an extravogance :)

Whiner.

Though I do have to say, having moved to CA, I seem to have lost some of my Australian tolerance for heat. Either that or "it's the humidity".

Qaj, IIRC, you were an East Coaster? Here makes even the Pilbara feel like a walk in the park with viscious temps and then, depending on the wind direction, vicious incursions of humidity. :)

Still, one gets used to things quite easily really.

In august (I think) and in UAE I had the bright idea to skip noon rest and just go out of the hotel and walk around to suck in the atmosphere etc.
I ignored the bewildered stares of the reception guys as I opened the front door.
I managed to take about 50 steps before finding an underground parking lot full of asian immigrants and most importantly a soda venting machine.
The heat was excrusiating and at a certain point I really felt I was going to fade out/loose consciousness. And I'm from Greece.

Adelaide, aka the not-quite-as-east coast. It had a tendency to be a bit warmer and a bit drier than the east, but not by much.

I can deal with a dry heat, but moist heat... No thanks. As the younger folk say these days: "Fuck that shit."
