104 here yesterday and we had an electical substation blow up from the strain. Now our electric company is asking everyone to conserve as much power as possible to prevent equipment failure and rolling blackouts.

We're rationing our power till this passes. If it's not 100% needed, off it goes.

Pretty dark and scary out there right now. Especially with the rumbling of thunder rolling in.

Today: Occasional thunderstorms - possibly severe. Storms may produce large hail and strong winds. High 88F. Winds SW at 5 to 10 mph. Chance of rain 80%.

It's not supposed to be quite as hot today but with the humidity it's just as uncomfortable as the 98 degree temps we've had the last few days. I'm ready for a nice, chilly fall day!

Hermosa Means Beautiful

It's 73 degrees at the moment in Hermosa Beach, clear, low humidity and soft ocean breezes with little morning fog still hanging on -- but it's still early and will probably reach about 78 to 80 by mid-afternoon:
