So I guess we’re all feeling the heat today? Stuck in an office wishing you could be outside to enjoy the glorious weather? Well, it’s not always as enjoyable as you’d think.

Surveying equipment - other brands of sunscreen are available.

I’ve just got back in from a site meeting on an undeveloped piece of land on an industrial estate with very little in the way of shelter (although we did manage to find some dappled shade which probably meant that the temperature was a degree or two lower than the 33 that our cars were telling us)!

The sun was brutally hot this afternoon, so my essential surveying equipment today, other than site plans, safety boots, etc, was sun cream (factor 50 no less) and a sun hat, and you can’t quite beat air con. in the car for the journey back to the office.┬áTime to re-hydrate and cool down.
