hot Hot HOT!

It was HOT today, hitting 103°F (39.5°C) here in Silicon Valley, staying there much of the afternoon. Opening the door to the outside felt like what I'd imagine opening the door to a blast furnace might feel like. At least the humidity was low, and, as an added bonus, there were no rolling blackouts, as we had a few years ago.

Today's heat set a new record high temperature for the date. The previous high was a relatively chilly 96°F (35.5°C).

One comment so far...

Isn’t that the truth though! Do you remember back in, what was it, in 2000 when we had rolling blackouts all throughout the Bay Area? I was working for Metricom back at that time and I remember it being impossible to print any of my reports on the 11″ x 14″ printer because the UPS systems and the power kept playing tag with each other. Eh, with the 34 degree 69% humidity, that dry 104 is sounding nice! Anything much changed in San Jose? Traffic still back on 880 and 87?
