What happened in Libya on September 13, 1922?
A world record was made! A temperature of 57.7°C (135.9°F) was recorded in the city of Al 'Aziziyah, the hottest recorded temperature on the surface of the Earth.
I can't imagine what that must have been like for the people that had to live through that day. They must have been miserable! No air-conditioners 84 years ago - and probably no refrigerators or freezers either. I'm not sure how long it was before the weather broke and cooled off, but I am happy I wasn't there.
The weather here lately has been cooler. It rained yesterday and there was even some thunder. It made everything kind of steamy and humid, but there was the feeling that the season has changed and autumn is here at last.
