Too hot to handle

Yes, I miss Palm Springs. And yes I even miss the summer heat. But with the mercury hitting a record 120 in the Coachella Valley on Wednesday, today I miss it just a bit less.

The forecast high for Salem today is 88-90, which would certainly make it the hottest day of the summer here so far -- and still 30 degrees cooler than 120!

Stay cool my desert friends.

Every year it's days like yesterday (and quite possibly today, as the humidity rises with a forecast of thunderstorms but alas no rain) that I will wonder aloud to myself and anyone else who will listen if we all haven't made a horrible horrible mistake.

What are we doing in this godforsaken place?! We've lost our minds.

Picture me blindly stumbling around, drenched in perspiration mumbling obsenities... &*($#!

I'm counting down the days, until we will spend a week in San Diego, away from the desert heat! (Although I don't think Phoenix has gotten as bad as the Coachella Valley, after 110, it doesn't really matter. You're just in Hell)

Don't you just love that feeling when you walk outside and take a deep breath and the air actually scorches your lungs and throat going down? Ah, memories.

No, that's not a tear, just perspiration. It's in the 80s here in Salem after all.
