Layers of Heat
Paso Robles, California

At sundown it was still an oppressive 85 degrees tonight. As I walked to the mailbox a block away it seemed that the waves of heat were layered in the sunset. There was no cool breeze such as we usually get to relieve the heat when the sun goes down. I feel for the people who are attending the Mid-State Fair a couple of miles away. Someone working a booth there told me last night that the air conditioning in her building had gone out for an hour and they had to rely on fans. There always seems to be a heat wave during the fair. That's one reason I rarely go. How is your weather?

@LadyDuck The problem is that it doesn't cool off enough until around midnight to open the windows and we live in a one-story house. It's somewhat risky to leave the windows open after we're both in bed, so I just don't get to bed until very late. I'd like to go now, but it's still too hot to open the windows.

I saw that you are having a lot of heat there. We have had cooler weather the last few days and it's supposed to hold over the weekend, then hot again. It rained this afternoon and cooled it way down, and now its around 63, which is awesome right now.

@bagarad I'm glad you can find some cooler areas. And 65 isn't too bad for night time. It's 74 here right now (at noon!) and it's supposed to be down to 49 tonight! That's a fluke and it will be back up in the high 80s and low 90s after this, with lows in the lower 60s. I hope you get a good break from the heat soon.
@bagarad We chose not to have it We have many windows that let in fresh air and the heat may not be that intense that fans cannot take care.Also, It is a matter of getting used to. In your case it is once in a way and so your body is not ready for it.
@bagarad This heat is uncalled for. Mercifully Belfast has dropped to 64 Fahrenheit / 18 centigrade this morning and the breeze coming ion from somewhere is cool and fresh.. I'll want a refund or the chance to sue somebody if it shoots up again. Do you know any good climate lawyers?
