    Or for you perverts, if n= your age, say 50 yrs, then the lower limit of the age of a girl you can date is 32. I think that also means that if your at least 50 yrs old and not riding in 32 percent humidity, you're lacking. Do the math.

    Yeah, I moved to the East Bay from the West Side of LA where it was 75 almost all the time, I get real cranky during the summer now.

    ( I did my time in the New England summer humidity/ cold winters too)

    I grew up in dry heat summers. I will take 105 in those places any time over 90- 95 in Houston

    Seems that Friday might be surface of the sun type weather...
    Forecasters expect Fairfield to reach 112 degrees Fahrenheit, Concord 113 degrees Fahrenheit, San Jose 101 degrees Fahrenheit, Santa Cruz 91 degrees Fahrenheit, Half Moon Bay 86 degrees Fahrenheit and San Francisco 84 degrees Fahrenheit. At 115 degrees Fahrenheit, Livermore will tie its all-time record that was set in 1950, the National Weather Service said.

    Tell me about it. Late Friday afternoon, I'm going to an outdoor wedding in the East Bay.

    Forecast temp is 106 degrees at the time of the ceremony. And I'll be in a suit and tie, along with all the other dudes.

    My cousin's a great gal, but she could not have made a worse choice of venue had she tried.

    There's also a massive traffic jam getting there, since it's Friday on Labor Day weekend, and the Bay Area basically empties out.

    System: Fake news?? Trump is a Fake President™, for god's sake.

    Monk: I want to go like my Dad did – peacefully, in his sleep, not screaming in terror like his passengers.

    Plat: I'd rather fellate a syphilitic goat than own a Cervelo.

    EJ Dionne: Modern-day conservatism isn't conservatism. It's reaction rooted in deep pessimism that isn't in keeping with the American character.

    Seam: Saw Bjork poop onstage back in the day. It blew my teenage mind.

    Sounds like you'll be in my neck of the woods. Is the wedding at a vineyard / winery?

    I'm leaving Sunday from south Puget Sound, WA heading to Mammoth, CA. My daughter said I will probably encounter some smoke along the route. Anything else I should be aware of? Intending to head into the high country and find some cooler temps, we think.

    Of course. It's the new 'thing'... like the last 3 weddings i've been to have been at vineyards.

    There are some fun descents from the eastern Sierra down to 395, e.g. from Tioga Pass.

    96 in SF...end of times.

    edit....
    SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — San Francisco broke its all-time record high Friday.

    At 2:43 p.m., the National Weather Service says the city hit 104 degrees.

    The last time downtown San Francisco reached 100 degrees was on June 14, 2000 when it hit 103 degrees, which was the city’s all-time record high until today.

    Records for Downtown San Francisco, California date back to June of 1874, according to the NWS.

    Click here for the list of the hottest temperatures recorded in the Bay Area so far

    The NWS issued an Excessive Heat Warning for the entire San Francisco Bay Area.

    Officials are reminding residents to stay safe during the heat wave.

    Don’t leave kids or pets in vehicles, drink plenty of fluids and limit outdoor strenuous activities during the hottest time of day.

    Ugh, who plans an outdoor wedding in the Bay Area in September through mid-October? I don't think the Bay Area has skipped an Indian Summer in my 37-years here.
