    A Heatwave? In the San Francisco Bay Area??

    Yup. Gonna last a week, they say. Yesterday was a high of 102 here in Silicon Valley, and as of 6AM this morning, it was still in the 70s. And I'm maybe a ten minute drive from the Bay. Even SF hit 88, I think.

    Not terrible as such things go (try living in Phoenix, right?), but surprising for around here.

    Maybe it's God punishing us for the Golden State Warriors being too good.
    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.

    It was 87 by me in the city but the deck was showing 93 in the shade. I did go for a run out by the ocean and it was around 75 according to my car. 64 here this AM...

    SF Bay residents in unison: "Drat. This will wilt my kale."

    I lived in Ess Eff for about 5 years and the last heat wave about this time of year in '94, my buddy and I decided dammit, it's so hot we're gonna swim at Ocean Beach. We ran in the water, it was so cold my nuts sucked up into my chest and I turned around and ran right back out.

    I don't know how those crazies at Aquatic Park do it.

    I used to live in Davis (15 miles from Sac), so I can verify that this is, indeed, true.

    Yeah...I do the drive to Tahoe when we can and never ceases to amaze me the temp swing from SF vs Davis. It's usually 20deg and sometimes 25-30 just ~70mi NE. Davis *seems* worse than SAC...certainly not by much but it usually seems hotter in Davis from a passer thru pov.

    The temp swing is actually shorter distance than that. I used to work in Concord, lived in SF. I did the reverse commute and it would be pushing 90-100 on 24 in Walnut Creek, go through the Caldecott tunnel and it would be 75 in the Oakland hills, 65 in the city!

    I'll certainly see +25 in Diablo vs SF...pretty much if it's warm here I don't ride Diablo. I have zero heat tolerance now......

    But if we leave then we miss out on the awesome winters here. It truly is a predicament. 😄

    Awesome winters, beautiful, stark landscape, decent food, and, I hear, good cycling. Not completely terrible.

    And today marked a 3rd straight day of at least 115 degree highs, first time that's ever happened here. So we're back to the "it sucks" mode.

    it's a dry heat though
    I think Sac gets some cooling from having the River. I too think Davis can be hotter, or just move up the Valley as well.

    At 115 deg. dry or not--it is seriously hot. Anything much over 100 in the direct sun, and you can't really do all that much IME.

    We just had a few days of weird Texas Gulf style high humidity, persistent clouds, thunderstorms and warm. Whatever it was it has dissipated and we have a nice early summer day--for one day... and then the rain is back.

    And the Times feature this morning is basically about how it will only get worse:
    https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/...T.nav=top-news
    "There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs."
    John Rogers
