2014—But It’s A Dry Heat

That’s what they say around here when the temperatures hover in the low 100’s in the valley: “But it’s a dry heat.” However, that comment is made under cloudless skies, which we normally have all summer. Except this morning, the monsoons, which I missed while in Arizona last week in the midst of monsoon season, are influencing our California weather this week so along with our 100° temperatures for the foreseeable future, the air will be dripping with monsoon moisture and the humidity will be unbearable…I’m picturing scenes from “The Long Hot Summer.” On second thought, if a sweaty guy looking like Paul Newman, shows up on my doorstep, bring it on!

I took these shots facing east, west, and north this morning about 6:30.
