Frightful Heat in the Bay Area

We have been having record breaking temps here in the Bay Area. We have always had cooling off in the evening, which is the best part about living here, but this year, we are getting NO relief from the heat whatsoever at any time.

Hardly anyone has air conditioning, because we are so used to mild temps. But this is getting unbearable. Yesterday, we set up our screened in tent, so we can sit outdoors in the evening, without any mosquitos getting us. The house is just way to hot (and its really not much better outdoors). We even had the fan on us last night in the tent! And didn't get up to go for a walk with the dogs till nearly 10PM.

I have been watering twice a day, to keep things alive.

We have been sweltering in SoCal as well! Our temps have slowly dropped from high 90s during the day to high 70s in the wee hours of the night.

I am deep watering the trees to help them deal with the stress of the heat.

I hope you're now feeling some cooling from the fog. I was never so glad to see it come rolling into the bay in my life!

I love the heat. I like to split wood for the winter. It makes me sweat all the poisons from my body. Hard work followed by a couple of cold beers. It's great!!
