It is hot, here in my suburban Los Angeles neighborhood; the newspaper today said a record has been set for 100+ [Fahrenheit] temperatures at the Pierce College weather station, the nearest to my Woodland Hills address, for the 16th day in a row, and that was yesterday. Today surely extended the record; it is after 8 p.m. as I write and my local temp is still 95F.
Not that this has anything to do with global warming, of course.
Update 9p.m. — according to this local report, today’s Woodland Hills temp hit 116 degrees F.
