A few of summer's dry clouds have been drifting over today, but with evening the haze is returning. The only distinct clouds remaining are those piled against the mountains. At least we got a few intermittent minutes of shade out of them this afternoon before they decamped. Any shade is welcome on such a day— nettle shade excepted, of course, but only crawling insects would miss that.
The Palace Theatre in downtown Los Angeles will be 100 years old tomorrow. It was about half that age when I used to go there, but already seemed ancient. There's going to be a special screening of "Sunset Boulevard" (the theater isn't regularly open, but it's still largely intact and usable.) I'd go, but it's several hundred miles away. Lots more pictures and some mostly accurate text here.
