It just reached 100 degrees on my patio. In the shade. 100.

Tomorrow's supposed to be hotter!


Aw Cole, sorry you're having a cold streak!

Shall I send over some blankets? It's a balmy 113 here...

Our normal humidity when it's hot is around 30%. Nothing like the Midwest where it runs 65-85%. Our 100 degrees is actually bearable.

And Pec, sure. We've got a spare room. And a pool. And a fierce dog. Oh, wait. You'd have to leave your cats home.

And it would be about an hour's drive to work each day.

In my area of the East Coast, it's been a roller coaster ride this summer. Its ranged from the 70's to the 90's. So far in July we've only had 2 heat waves, that is 3 consecutive days or more of 90 degrees.

I hope that isn't in Celsius. I was on a 5 hour coach drive from my college to Cambridge university with 30 other teenagers, and it was 100f (37c). The air conditioning was broken and there were no windows. The smell was delightful.

Ah, the dog would eat the cat. Sad, but it might be worth it.

I'm freelance, so I go where the work takes me.

The work is mostly where you are, west and northwest. I'm east. We don't make porn films out here, for instance, so there wouldn't be much work. Those are all made near you.

OK, OK, don't get your knickers in a twist. I was teasing.

And I have no doubt the cat would destroy the dog. The dog tips the scale at about nine pounds.

85 in Berkeley today. 103 in Walnut Creek where Doug and I are moving, but earlier in the week the highs were in the mid-70's. (The move is so Doug's close to the train to Davis and I'm still close to BART.)

I'll take hot and dry anytime over hot and humid. Anyone spending midsummer anywhere near the Chesapeake Bay knows what I'm talking about. Did I say mosquitoes? I picked up one of those fake tennis racquets designed to electrocute flying insects and my principal exercise in the summer is swinging that thing.

Up here in the frozen north it's not always quite so frozen as some seem to believe. We were at the lake last week, and with temperatures constantly at around 40 C (104 F) and 75% humidity it was a bit hard to take. We were in our old camper, no air conditioning. It was hot.

Now, back home, it's considerably more tolerable. 30 today, so around 85 F. Fortunately, we're at a high enough elevation (think Denver) that no matter how warm it is during the day, the nights cool off quickly after sunset.
