Heat

While everyone on the East Coast is dealing with Hurricane Irene and the aftermath, we are having a heat wave.

It's been hot here - by 10 in the morning it's already in the 90s by our carport thermometer. By afternoon, it's above 100. And that's in the shade.

Jack has been spending his days in [The Man I Love]'s  cool air-conditioned office. We've chosen the height of the day to run errands.....down on the beach.

The amazing thing about L.A. is the climate variation. While it's 103 up here in Topanga, a mere six miles to the south on the beach, it's 73 degrees and breezy. Very strange.

Here's hoping that everyone wherever you are, is safe, comfortable, and dry.

I suppose as heat rises, it draws in air from over the sea, which is cooler, so the beach (which sounds quite hot enough for me) is cooler than your mountain home (which sounds horrendously hot!)

But I expect the explanation is far more complicated than that. I am not a meteorologist!

Texas is still getting burned up, in spite of Rick Perry's prayers.

Maybe God doesn't like him?

It's 8pm and STILL friggin 94 outside my house dear woman! When you add the atrocious dewpoint of 60 degrees to it...you get to add damp and sweaty to the mix.

San Francisco was like that, too. It was so chilly in the city but ten minutes to the south the temperature rose by about twenty degrees.
