Training in Quarantine – Day 123

20degC so cooler than it’s been for a while. Nice comfortable walk, but as I was walking past Sainsbury’s there seemed to be some kind of argument going on, and escalating. Didn’t hang around, but possible that this could get to a punch-up level. And it wouldn’t surprise me, Covid has certainly brought out the stupidity in people.

Training in Quarantine – Day 122

Cooler day, still warm, but not overly hot and no rain.

But my walk was a bit distracted by this little guy:

He was abnormally tame, and didn’t run off when I approached and seemed happy to look at me and even lay down. One of the residents told me they sometimes fed him. Probably wasn’t a good idea since he now sees humans as a food source.

Training in Quarantine – Day 120

Boy, oh boy, yesterday was a crazy hot day. I went back into the office as they are going to do a deep clean so we needed to make sure all our desks are clear of any personal belongings.

They blocked out every other desk:

And the air conditioning was reduced since there weren’t that many people in the office.

The temperature in the office was a toasty 26.8degC

But the temperature outside soared to 36degC, and nearly tipped the 38degC/100degF mark.

As expected, the heat destroyed Network Rail’s ability to run a reliable service and services out of King’s Cross were delayed or cancelled.

I ended up using the Piccadilly Line to get back home.

On the way, spotted Blackfriars station had a vending machine for alcohold wipes, hand sanitisers and face masks:

The heat in the trains was horrendous. Eventually made it home and decided not to walk, I was sweating enough as it was just taking the train.

Back to today. Temperatures are back to mid-20s so walking is still hot weather, but not as uncomfortable as yesterday.
