An excessive heat warning was just issued until Saturday evening and it’s not hard to see why. The forecast for this week is HOT and DRY. We’re predicted to get highs of 104, 104, 99, 101, 97, 99, 97, 98 and 100 degrees F tomorrow (Thrs) through next Friday. All with 0% chance of precipitation. This combination is what is fueling the fires in the West and is killing everything here. Really, how can anything survive?
I have to complain about the weather here online because I always feel like I’ll expose myself as a liberal if I acknowledge the extreme weather conditions around here. That’s probably a pretty unfair statement, but I do feel like the weather – once a safe subject for conversation when surrounded by people of different beliefs- is loaded nowadays. Am I right about this?
