via newser We think we've got it tough with the heatwave this week in New England (and other parts of the U.S.) Get a load of this story about the Middle Eastern city of Quriyat in Oman. They recorded a 24-hour low temperature of 108.7 degrees Fahrenheit, the highest temp in that category ever. That was the overnight LOW. How hot did it get during the day? Well, I'm glad you asked, it got up to 121.6. Yes, a real "scorchah" as we say around here. The article goes on to say the World Record hottest temperature ever recorded on Planet Earth was 134 degrees, measured in Death Valley, Calif., on July 10, 1913.
