People in Cape Town know that it hasn’t just been hot here. Sweltering is a polite term, and the likeness to bathing in an oven’s unforgiving heat is more likely on par. The news of the sun itself becoming a Capetonian has travelled far and wide with all South Africans being aware of the beating the sun has ravaged upon the land.
As Tweeps do – they’ve given us a few laughs on the matter.
Here are some of the Heat Tweets that’ll make you wonder: who left the oven on? In Cape Town

Regular body temperatures? We miss them.
I don’t know who needs to hear this but do not walk your dog in this extreme heat, especially on concrete/tar that has been baking in the sun all day.
