The heat

Yes, we’re surviving the incredible heat here in SLO (I’ve gotten a couple of phone calls from concerned people).

Depending on who you ask, it was 104, 107, or 111 degrees today. I know that to some of you hot-weather veterans, 111 with no humidity is no sweat (well, very little sweat, relatively). But you’re also equipped with air-conditioning and pools. We on the Central Coast are not. We have fog, delicious, elusive fog. So, when the fog remains far at sea, causing the proverbial mercury to creep up past 80, we SLObispans get cranky, tired, and desperate.

This desperate mother of a cranky toddler sought relief through several steps:

1. cool bath
2. nap with a fan pointed directly on ourselves
3. air-conditioned car trip to
4. air-conditioned Wal-Mart and
5. air-conditioned scrapbooking store
6. frozen yogurt and water at Costco (enjoyed outside in the most welcome breeze)
7. a dip in a tiny tub outside (for my feet and all of Natalie)
8. no cooking (Bret and I agreed that Costco should do dinner for us tonight)

I sincerely hope that the fog cools us down soon…
