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.
