145F (62.8C)! And the high earlier today 152F (66.7C)! A world record. What's that you say? Full sun? Black asphalt roof shingle? Stop denying my narrative.

Not a surprise. When I worked for the railroad almost 50 years ago, the ripyard would be scorching hot because of all of the metal in the yard. One could get a second-degree burn just leaning on or touching the metal.

Was a hot day yesterday. Had all the windows open and suddenly this gloved hand pops around the half open window, trying to pull it open further. I live on the first floor so there was this bloke standing on the rain cover outside the window, having climbed out of the hallway window in the wall next to it.

I ask him what he's doing, says he tried knocking on the door and I didn't answer. He wanted to repair the window. After that he climbed back in and got the heck out of there on his bike.

Damn opportunistic burglars.

Spent the rest of the day on the phone with the police and various property managers trying to figure out if any of the cameras in the area were actually turned on and not dummies.

Turns out they were dummies.

A forensic officer came by later in the day and examined the windows but the guy was wearing gloves and the floor was dry so no foot prints or prints of any kind.

Got a good look at the guy though and gave a full description. He was wearing a breather mask but only around his neck so I got a full look at his face.

I was supposed to be working...

The guy cost me a days work, basically.

good you were home tho... And good he was not violent or armed. As i recall only criminals can be armed in UK (and sportshooters obeying rediculous rules).

A cashier at Walmart looked like Angela Merkel.

Did they catch that guy Mikom? I'll guess they won't be able to identify him with mask and no cameras. Did you describe his bike for the police?

Well, while he was wearing the mask around his neck, he wasn't wearing it on his face at the time so I got a full look at him and gave that description to the police.

The bike was a regular black sports bicycle like there are so many of here in London.

Yeah it was a good thing he wasn't armed but then again, he wasn't exactly in a good position to do anything seeing as that trying to climb in through the window would have put him at great risk of falling (either accidentally or due to me pushing him out, should it have come to that). So he just made his way back to the other window as fast as he could before running the hell away.

They haven't caught anyone so far. The police did give me a free "smart water" kit for tagging valuables with a unique chemical ID code so that if anything should be stolen but recovered, it can be returned to us.
