Heat Wave Hits Mission Viejo, California
My car temperature gauge reached 111 degrees yesterday. Whew, that's hot. I remember my parents saying that "it was hot enough to fry an egg." So, I tried it.....not exactly hot enough, and the dirt made it unappealing, but still....."hot enough to create dirty, runny, scrambled eggs." Of course, that's a silly saying so it probably won't catch on, but you get my drift.
It was hot!
Today is better....so far a fast check of the thermometer shows only 90 degrees. Crazy how cool that can feel :/. We also have cloud cover, which in fire season is a bit of a concern. For an area of the country which never sees thunderstorms and rarely gets humidity....we seem to have an unusual number of fires started by lightening. But I'm hoping for the best, we are finally in a cooling trend. Whew.....
So, I'm going to try and enjoy our warm evenings and get some night time pool use. Summer is over (actually this is the first real sign of summer we've had) and pretty soon...it will be a Southern California Winter, which means 80 degree averages and fewer heat waves.
Mission Viejo is definitely a great place to live, and during the heat....we just do our morning walk around the Lake earlier in the day.
