Forecast: Hot

The forecast for today, October 1, is very hot -- 105 with a real feel of 109.  Pretty much the same for tomorrow.   PSN's award winning columnist and Temple City blogger, Steve Scauzillo, has a good piece on our spate of oppressive weather including some observations from JPL scientist Bill Patzert.  Experts say we're in for a hot and humid October.  But looking ahead, I see Accuweather's calling for cool temps next week and even rain for next Monday.  We'll see.

Anyway, the photo was taken a couple of weeks ago when we had the whole weather works going -- heat, thunder, lightening and rain.  Today, no clouds.  Just hot and humid.   Crazy weather for Southern Cal.

I'm told we haven't had this long a hot spell in years. I don't remember it that way, but I guess them's the facts. It was a lot nicer today, though. And I'll take that rain.

My 20-year-old gardenia bushes didn't survive this year's heat. I'm mourning their loss.

Crazy weather - truer words were never spoken. I, too, have heard that we've experienced this before. Small consolation - I'm ready for a long dose of the slightly-cooler weather we've had this last couple of days! (...and so sorry to hear of your Gardenias, Ann. So sad!)
