We are right at the beginning of the heat wave, and I woke this morning to hazy skies, sent to us from British Columbia, which is having devastating wildfires. The wind direction changed from our usual onshore to offshore flow, and the natural sea breeze that keeps us cool even when it gets really hot won't return until Friday, when the temperatures will back off a little. I found this article online about the heat wave. We don't usually ever see triple digits, so none of us have air conditioning. Our trusty fans will be in full use for the month of August, it seems.
We are supposed to be heading to Lake Ann this Thursday, which is a nine-mile hike, most of it in full sun. I'm wondering if I might decide to take a day off! But I might miss something and I hate to think of my buddies suffering without me.
