It is so hot that I have seen the city workers doing the same thing here.
Gracious! Nothing would work here if it couldn't tolerate 33C or above.
I've never heard of that heat is reduced with water. There has to be really a heat wave.
I've never heard of that. They would have been out everyday here this summer!
Perhaps it's been hot all over.
Luckily I don't remember that kind of heat too often from my time in your part of the world! We've got our typical late-summer crazy temperature swings here.
Definitely a sign that it's HOT!
