108 in the Shade

This morning it was 82 degrees at 6:45 AM here in Phoenix, and already past 100 around 10:30 AM. It’s around 105 now, in the early afternoon, and climbing. It peaked at 108 yesterday. I spend a lot of time in and out of the pool when outside, but I’m indoors now enjoying the A/C.

A 20 degree temperature differential for an A/C unit is a fair load. People can’t and don’t keep the interior of their homes at Bay Area temps. So we have ours set to cool down to 83 — which is warmer than what we set the thermostat to in Castro Valley when we want to heat the place up!

It’s all what you’re used to, I guess. I’m getting acclimatized.

We could use some rain down here — about three more weeks to Monsoon season!
