Man, I am sure glad there's no such thing as global warming…posted by Bill Arnett @ 3:05 PM Permalink …'cause even though I've grown fairly used to the long Indian Summers we have out here in California, this year has been wild.
We had an unusually temperate summer (very few days over 100º), we have lately had some really whacky weather. It was fairly cool, breezy and nice for a week or two, then it went back up into triple digits. For about three days last week the temps were well over 100º outside and about ten degrees warmer inside (we have air conditioning in two rooms of the house but even just a few hours a day sends our power bill zooming from our average sub-$100 to between $350 to $400 for the month. So we made the conscious decision to just use 5 or 6 high velocity fans that keeps our PG&E bill under that $100 mark and just suffer the heat.
But anytime it's over 100º outside it's 108º-114º inside, which Is why I periodically fail to post any columns: Those temps shut down my mind while I vegetate through the heat.
Yesterday was good, today is great, and besides this I do plan posting today if something tickles my fancy, but I wanted to explain the main reason I sometimes don't appear here in print.
Ciao, bella ámi.
