There could be rain as late as Wednesday, but after that things will begin to heat up rapidly. A rather distressing report on Weather Underground says that it could be 113 degrees here a week from tomorrow, and as the previous night's low is predicted to be a sultry 77, the house will start off hot and just get hotter. That is power outage weather, for sure, and me with a freezer full of ice cream. I wonder how much of it I can eat in a week without destroying my pancreas? On the other hand, if it kills me I won't have to see July's electric bill.
I guess this all means I should enjoy the chill while I can. Eight days hence I could be roasting in the Devil's own sauna, and there's no telling how hot it could get after that. I'm really glad that this storm doesn't seem to have any lightning in it. I hope it stays that way. A heat wave on top of a wildfire would be disastrous.
