Too Darn Hot
We have had over a week of daytime temperatures above 100 degrees with night cooling only to 80. This may be normal to Arizonans but to a 30 year Southern California beach guy this is cruel and unusual punishment. We are getting a little releaf now (under 100). Plants wilt each day - and die if I forget to water. Of course, here we have air conditioning which was never necessary near the coast- and a well-insulated new house in which our electric bills are surprisingly low but I am still ready for a return to more moderate weather - and the return of the legendary Delta breeze.
