Today I was pleasantly surprised — the high was only 96°F, and I actually felt how much cooler it was compared to yesterday.  When will it begin to cool down? This has been the longest, hottest summer that I can recall in Los Angeles.

    1. We’re finally in the 80’s today, but back into the 90’s later this week. Even that is better than 100+.

      Has your summer been normal in the south of Spain? I visited Spain in late May up through mid June this year, and I found the weather mostly very pleasant.

    1. Rain! Oh you’re so lucky! If it were to start raining here right now, I would just go outside & stand there marveling.

      I hope it cools down soon also. As in fall, or even the kind of summers we usually have.

    1. We’ve had our first respite in months – it’s cooled to the mid-80’s for the next couple of days, but we’re back in the 90’s beginning Monday. 😦 The cats are grateful too. And, I enjoyed your post! I’ve seen frost in LA on rare occasions, and I wouldn’t know what to do about my plants. Now I do!

      1. Another trick that works only if the frost is light (> 28 d) is to sprinkle the garden with a light shower BEFORE the sun hits it. It melts the frost slowly. I do this if I messed up and forgot to cover, but it requires getting up before dawn!

    1. I took a picture of the outdoor temperature gauge on my cell phone yesterday evening. At 6:01pm it was 88 degrees. I feel as if I’m being punished for my sins.
