Even though we got no more rain today, it remained cool and mostly cloudy. It will heat up again over the next few days. I'm not looking forward to that, or to the dryness that will now most likely prevail for the remainder of the spring— especially not when Santa Barbara is burning. There's as much fuel here as there is there, even after so much was consumed by last year's conflagrations.

Oh, head yanking tomorrow.
