  1. wow! I am surprised Philippines is not one of the hottest country.
    I played Thursday13 too. :)

  2. It was fun to read about heat when the thermometer hasn't risen above 20 in weeks!

  3. Well, I'm happy to say our temp here in Southern Ontario has risen enuff we don't have to worry about frostbite every time we go outside. Great list. Happy T13!

  4. Not surprised that Death Valley appears to have the record. We're neighbors. LOL

  5. Yuck! I hate the hot temps. Give me an ice storm over a heat wave any day. It's supposed to be 80* here today. I am not impressed.

    Happy TT!

  6. Wow. I'm surprised it gets that hot in Germany. I'm also surprised South America's not on the list.

    Neat list. Happy TT!

  7. What a shame it doesn't get that hot in Germany every summer. Okay, maybe that's a little extreme. But more than a day or two over 80 would be nice. Summer here is usually in the 70s. :(

  8. oh my gosh, that's INSANE that it gets that hot! You could literally fry an egg!

  9. Wow, I know where I live gets hot, but not that hot! Nice One!!
