It Begins

So the shopping is out oft he way for the week, and I won't have to go out on Sunday. Sunday, according the the forecast, is no longer the day of peak heat. Sunday, Monday and Tuesday will all have highs of 104! Sunday night will have a low of 78!. Indeed, tonight and the subsequent seven nights are currently predicted to have lows of 70 or higher. I'm sure this is illegal in California, but who the hell do we arrest?

So tomorrow will be a miserable day, Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday will be hellish, Wednesday and Thursday will be nightmares, and next Friday worse than today was. My only consolation is that things will probably be worse down in the valley than up here on the piedmont. Sadly, this will not make me sweat less. One danger of all this is that of a power outage due to the strain on the electrical system that millions of air conditioners will cause. Another danger is that of fire, which we would have whether it was hot or not, but the heat would make it more difficult for firefighters, so I'm hoping we remain fire free.

Another danger of course would be death from heat stroke, but given how I'll probably be feeling, death might just be welcome. And if I die and end up going to Hell, at least it will probably be cooler than California.

The Internet connection has been acting up again, but I don't know if the heat has anything to do with that. Maybe it would be happening anyway. In any case, if a power outage takes me offline during the next week or so, don't be surprised. If not, all I'm likely to be doing here anyway is whining about my misery.

I did buy three bottles of lemonade today. I hope the power stays on so I can keep making ice to put in it. Wish me luck. Wish us all luck.
