Record Heat Wave

It's HOT here in the Bay Area. It's been going on for a week and a half and today's forecast says it'll be going on for another week. Well over 100 degrees the whole time. It was 116 in Pleasanton, the place I work, yesterday. Fortunately, my family and I were at a Giants night game (actually 2 nights in a row), where is was only in the upper 80's. Two consecutive nights at a Giants game where I could wear shorts and a t-shirt. I've been to nearly a thousand games in my life and I'm still under ten where I could wear summer clothes to a Giants night game.

Anyway, when the A/C comes on at 8am and runs until 4am, it's hot. We took the train to the game, and all a/c units were burned out. It was sweltering on the BART. Every stop, the people got on and immediately excaimed how hot the car was. Brutal. It's 11:30pm and it's still 95 outside. Some day I'll get the a/c fixed in my car.

  1. Same here, Steve. We have no ac at home, but the house seems to be some 20 degrees cooler than outside. I haven't experienced such heat since we lived in Florida, and since my ancestors evolved on a glacier I am really feeling it.
