    It hit 65° one summer in Dubai apparently.

    Not reported though.

    It never gets warmer than the limit they set for the slave immigrant workers over there.

    There’s a story I heard about the al maktoums and young jockey boys.

    I can’t quite remember but it never gets warmer than 50°.

    Sorry I’m spouting. Jennifer isn’t BIN well a load of old waffle?!

    Certainly could be weather modification going on, I’m sure we’ve had the coldest July I can remember. Not that we’ll ever find out for sure.
