A Photo a Week Challenge : Unexpected

It was totally unexpected record breaking day. I was at Paris for business and my personal appointment was scheduled a few weeks ago. There’s no reason to change the day of rendez-vous except one crazy forecast. The French weather agency « Météo-France » was saying it would be going to be an exceptionally hot day. Indeed it might be true but nobody knows. 

The result was quite simple. It took 42.6 degrees Celsius (108.7F) officially and a thermometer of the town read 47C (117F). 


Station staffs handed free water out in the train station in order to avoid traveler’s heatstroke.

    1. Phoenix! I’ve never been there but I imagine it is likely hot. It was not so good for my health but so interesting.

      1. We were visiting for a family wedding. The day of the wedding was 115. We spent as little time outside as possible. Fortunately, there is no humidity in Arizona, so we didn’t have that aspect of the heat, but it was scorching.
