    Oh, sure, thanks, guys. At least I know what I'll be humming for the next few days.


    And it's wicked windy here, but (knock on wood) no storms.

    Interesting, in England we say touch wood.

    We're a little more insistent.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    You could always try some Coldplay

    We are about to have a heat wave this coming weekend in West Los Angeles. The temperatures will top 74 degrees F for the highs. Stay tuned. News at 11.

    I don't think everything in this entry is accurate (or necessarily connected), but - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Knocking_on_wood
    And I think it originated with touching ash wood? For the Celts and now UK anyway.


    And it was over 90F today and expected to do the same tomorrow. It's almost 11pm and is still 79F here.

    It hasn't reached 79F at my place since last August. It topped out today at about 56F. Rumor has it, though, that a heat wave is coming by tomorrow. It's supposed to skyrocket to 68F...



    Unfortunately, the days begin getting shorter again this upcoming Saturday...

    The last couple days we hit about 91 or 92. We're supposed to have a storm tonight. Too bad I'll be asleep, I love thunderstorms.

    My house sits under a canopy of 120-foot firs and hemlocks. It's always several degrees cooler up here than down in town. And a LOT windier too, as we sit up on a minor east-facing ridge. And I swear more rain as well, probably due to the local uplift.

    Although because of the trees I usually get a little less snow on the ground in my front yard than the more open hills and fields. Even so, we often have several inches on the ground, but by the time I drive down into Monroe there is none.

    If I recall correctly my high-water-mark recording outdoor thermometer has yet to go above 78F this year. I know because I like to whine about it this time every year like clockwork.
