The Heat is On

I always come closer to understanding what Tatooine, er Tunisia, was/is like during their hot months.

The air quality is pretty poor today too, of course normally it's not wonderful during the summer but there is a huge fire not far from here that is spreading smoke all over the valley.

It's a little warm outside today.
It was two degrees cooler yesterday...not that it matters much at those temps. I'd gone out yesterday to run some errands and one of the stores I visited had a power issue the day before and their A/C compressor had gone out, it was nearly as hot in the store as it was outside and much more humid...yuk.

Sure is pleasant at 3am though.

Last year we had the same record heat only over the Comic Con weekend, thankfully we left here to go there. San Diego was, at 75°, 43° cooler and it's only 2 ½ hours away. It would be nice if it weren't so hot for the drive to San Diego this year. We'll cross our fingers.

Oh you poor thing! I think they should re-name Yucca Valley to Yucka Valley. It's hot here in Oceanside (San Diego) about 95 degrees.... I'm sure it will feel better to ya next week. Are you coming to visit for the whole four days or just for Thursday night to see the fan films? I wish I could go but this weekend is my hubby and son's birthdays and I've spent a pretty penny. Got my kiddo a Gibson Les Paul Special. He's gonna be so stoked!

Yikes! We lived in Fort Worth, TX for two years, and we had a streak of nine days over 100. I thought I was going to die (being a Yankee and all). But you're right. The nights were wonderful!

Stay cool!

LOL Yucka Valley. Yes. At this point, yes.
95° there is sticky. ugh. It will be cooler I know it...I hope. haha

I'll be there Fri, Sat, Sun. We get in free and don't spend any money there, we just like to hang out with people and relax. Just a good time

Oooh, lucky kid! Hope they have great birthdays.

Fort Worth, TX
Last time I was in that area (Dallas) it was 117°
It's been 8 years here and I'm still not totally used to it, I like it warm but there is a limit. lol I'm from the coast so was never used to hot weather there. Save for a week in the early 70's when it was 105°

Is that ALL? I remember a streak of 23 days of over 110... topping off at 121... I was younger then, and worked inside and I could stand it... now I sound like an old woman yakking about the weather....

I dream of San Diego in the summer! Once we went there in May I was oohing and aahing over the open windows in our hotel...

The Heat is On

On the street?

Inside your head, with every beat?

I probably shouldn't remember that song, but I do.

Hey, anything to do with ex-members of the Eagles is fine by me. I even remember tapping my feet to Footloose...

Anyway, it's boiling over here in the UK too (no folks, it isn't always wet and raining here). This week coming they are predicting a row of days in the 90's, which for the UK is HOT< HOT< HOT. And humid, which sucks if you work in a non-air conditioned office like I do.
BTW Leah, any more idea if you can make it to Vegas for my nuptuals? Let me know Princess!

Mark!

90's in the UK? Ughola, I'm sorry. *chills*

I'm going to try really hard to get over there! I'll know closer to the end of Sept. But I'll let you know.
