Meanwhile, Sacramento broke its all time record high temperature for the month of January today. We were only a couple of degrees below a record for the date here, but records for the date were broken at several places in the valley. It's really not looking good for summer when January is hotter than a normal April.
I'm going to try to stay awake long enough to see the half moon rise tonight, but I woke up so early this morning that it might be difficult. This is one of those times when I wish I had some coffee that wasn't decaffeinated on hand. It would be especially nice iced.
