Can Bad Weather Affect Teaching?

The weather is really hot today in Sarawak. I will definitely sweat everytime I teach in class and I think it affects my quality teaching in many ways. For example,

a. I am always tempted to reduce talking and talk craps in class.
b. I tend to photostate exercises and let the students do them without proper guidance.
c. I tend to sit and refrain myself from moving around in the classroom, not helping students with their work.
d. I tend to write less on the board, which means less explanation and illustration are given to students.
e. I enter the class with a "not so happy" face, which instills fear among my students.
f. I tend to get angry faster. Every little mistake made by students can turn into a catastrophic event.

All these are due to the hot weather. How I wish we have air-cond. classrooms.

Oh how I wish it rains and I wish I am still at Entanggor village....

(river of river...where are you?)

(I miss river so much!)

(It will be so refreshing if I can sit in the water all the time)
(And let my towels hang around)
(And be like Tarzan all the time!)

River oh River!

Sorry, I had to retype my comment:
Isn't it a bit too early for the heat wave? Where I live, it's the exactly the opposite of yours. Raining and sometimes storming too. It's chilly and wet outside. How strange is our weather system this year!
