How Hot is it in California?

It's well past midnight and here I sit in my hotel room unable to sleep. A long day working locally, then a long, slow, torturous drive through heavy traffic and highway construction for over four hours to my next 'job site'. I'm tired, but too wound up; probably caffeine induced. I took a benedryl 1/2 hour ago, it should kick in soon.

I have been messing around on my laptop and remembered I used to blog, and I used to enjoy it. For some reason I had just stopped; kind of like every time I start a journal, or a diet, or an exercise program.

So while I'm waiting for the old diphenhydramine to take me away, I'll talk weather.

We enjoyed a wet, cool winter and spring. Carson loves that cool weather. He sports that heavy, luxurious fur coat with pride, ignoring the occasional 'fat dog' comments.

Early summer was amazingly cool also. Nice green grass and cool earth, refreshing to roll around in. While the rest of the U.S. was unusually hot, we were loving our unusual not-so-hot summer days. But alas, the heat is here with us now, as we knew it would be, as it should be. It has been in the 90's

I finally had to put away every one's winter coats......
