23. Just heat and humid haze at our new place in Ventura. Not as bad as yesterday.

We are almost behind a little fold in the foothills -- we have a peek of the ocean when it's not foggy. So, waaay better temperatures than further inland where it is 110, but this is indeed a heatwave even here. We have ceiling fans and no AC and it was in the high 90's yesterday outside, and 85 indoors. Not much relief after dark.

I went shopping for furniture with my SIL yesterday in a store with 3 levels and no AC. I thought I would melt upstairs, and I think I alarm people when my face turns bright red like that. I told my SIL and the sales lady I really was not stroking out. I like that store, and hope to go back while they still have a sale and gods willing the weather cools. The sales lady and I agreed that a lot of what we are going thru at the moment is caused by humans. I looked at her collection of tattoos (dragons, heraldic devices) and asked if she was aware of the saying, "The Goddess is coming, and is She pissed." She said oh yes.

But, compared to the Apocalypse in Houston, we're just dandy as long as we don't get a fire close by.

I think I'll go put more ice in my coffee now.
