It is 102 degrees here on the central coast of CA today. Yesterday we

set a record high of 102.

Normal temp is in the low 70's. We are six miles from the ocean.

We don't have air cond because we usually never need it.

Our house is well insulated so it is cooler inside if we keep the doors and curtains closed and the fans on.

4. We're up here in the SF Bay Area

You know - the place where you light your consular fireplace on a Spare the Air Day when it's 106 outside.

I'm across the Bay and haven't ventured out for two days other than crack the door so I can complain about how hot it is outside.

5. Highest temperature EVER recorded at Moffett Field yesterday

107 - and it's supposed to match that today. (Moffett is about 45 miles south of San Francisco, right on the Bay so it gets the cooling effects )

We walked to the local farmers' market early this morning, and now that we're back have no plans to go outdoors until the sun goes down. There's a reason people in hot climes invented the siesta!

6. 106 in Oakland about a mile from the lake above 580. One of the hottest days I've seen in 60 years.

We got up to 106 around this time yesterday. Our house is 90 years old, in the 70's the original owner installed air conditioning for health reasons. It still works well. We've used it a few times. Like yesterday and today.

But compared to what most of the rest of the country, if not world goes through weather wise I've got no complaints. Also very few reflective surfaces in my house which is fortunate.
