More of the Same [Jul. 3rd, 2013|07:48 pm]
The sky was bright blue here this afternoon, but a haze was hanging over the valley. Now the haze is rising and forming clouds that are headed this way. It will be another night of clouds holding in the heat. It will probably be even hotter than it was last night, and there could be thunder storms. There have already been thunder storms a few dozen miles north of here, with golf ball sized hail. I wouldn't be surprised if the lightning has started fires, though the humidity might keep them from expanding too rapidly. I'm going to start a petition demanding that Kentucky take back its weather.

There's stuff for making a sandwich for dinner, though I'm not very hungry, and I'm getting tired of cold sandwiches anyway. There's also still plenty of potato salad, and I'll soon be tired of that as well. What I'd really like is an enchilada, but I've never been able to make a decent one. I can make pretty good tacos, but have no knack for enchiladas. I fit right into this town. None of the local Mexican restaurants can make them very well either.

Ah, well. The heat should abate somewhat after tomorrow, and with any luck Friday night should be cool enough that I'll be able to open my windows again and let the house cool down without the aid of the air conditioner. Tonight I'll have to be content with what will probably be another brilliant sunset, thinks to those heat-retaining clouds. And tomorrow being a holiday I won't even have to go out to fetch mail. Thankful for small favors.

I hope today didn't turn out to be so bad and that tomorrow really is cooler!

A good enchilada is a beautiful thing. It's been a long time since I've eaten really well-made Mexican food.

The triple digit temperatures are supposed to be over, but it's expected to stay in the nineties for at least another week. The only good thing is that the nights are supposed to be cooler starting tomorrow.

I was spoiled by Los Angeles. Good Mexican food was available everywhere. I've really missed it since I moved north. I have some hopes for a taco truck that has expanded into a building recently. It was only open for lunch on weekdays, and I could never get there, but they have extended their hours a bit since expanding and I might be able to try it soon. It's probably expensive, though. That's another way Los Angeles spoiled me. A lot of good places were dirt cheap.
