The view outside my apartment this morning. No wonder California is such a popular summer getaway! Look at that balmy tropical humidity, so thick it’s obscuring the church a few blocks away. (Balmy does mean “frigid,” right?)
I read that we had record precipiation today — 0.01 inches. Apparently it’s never rained here on July 18 before, so a hundredth of an inch was all it took to make the record books. Reportedly it also caused a few power outages, since it was just enough rain to turn the dust on the area’s transformers into mud but not enough to wash the mud away, leading to overheating. This could be a lie, but it is an amusing lie, so I’ll give it a pass.
Such a strange city, where you have to wear a wool coat to work in the summer. It’s my favorite place on the planet.
