Perfect summer day here the last couple of days. Warm, sunny, a wispy cloud every now and again and a gentle breeze so you don't fry. 30C the last 2 days and going to continue til Thursday apparently.

I'm hiding in the AC too. When we built our home both our and the builder's real estate agents said "oh, you don't need central air here. It doesn't get hot for long. There's always a cooling breeze. Save your money." But WE knew I get beyond crabby when it's over 75 and humid, 80 when it's dry. That was the BEST $4000 we spent then...and have smiled at those who thought we were foolish back in 2000. After all, they never lived with me when it was hot and humid.

100F in LA, in the city. I can't imagine what it's like just over the hill in the valley. One reason I moved out of the valley 30 years ago...

It's 81 here but it feels hotter, humidity thou art a B%tch. The up side is my Night Blooming Cirrhus has buds on it. It only blooms about twice a year when its hot and humid like this. The flowers only bloom for one night and then wilt by morning. They are quite spectacular.

This is one blossom about 7 inches in width. My plant has about a dozen of these buds.

We have window air conditioners, and only two of them work (one only sort of). I'm waiting for the guy to call to schedule an estimate on ductless AC.

I have the window open and this is what the air outside feels like. And it is only 71F.
