Is This A Heat Wave?

Today was supposed to be the crest of the worst heat wave to hit Los Angeles this year.

It doesn’t seem so bad in Pico-Robertson.

I walked to the bank this morning at 9 and it did feel a bit warm.

Now I’ve just come back from a pleasant stroll to the library. Again, a bit warm. I’d say the upper 80s. But that’s it.

I don’t have air conditioning where I live. I have a fan but I’m not using it. I might put it on tonight. I find the hum and the breeze comforting and it helps me sleep.
