Hot in the City

We had summer this past weekend.  It hit 93 (33.8C) yesterday, and to us pale northwesterners, it felt pretty dang hot!  Yes, I know, everyone else sneers at our complaints of being too warm.  However, today we have the on shore flow and a significant temperature drop.
We did our favorite ride in Carnation Valley Saturday.  We left WAY too late in the day.  I ended up overheating, and had to sit in the shade and pour water on my head.

A significant water control project is being done.  The fields in the background almost always flood in the winter.  

Yesterday we were up and out earlier.  We did the 5 mile walk with the giant hill.  We're getting faster on the hill, and I no longer have to stop for a breather.  So there is progress on that fitness frontier.

This is what we're doing today.  Jim's going in for a screening tomorrow morning, so he's spending the day drinking gatorade and chicken broth, eating jello and generally starving to death. Note to self in the future; Campbell's is the least disgusting chicken broth.

Other than this maties, I have zippity doo-dah all to report.

  1. Hi Allison,
    Where's that second picture taken?

    Also, I meant to comment the other day on your pic of the Carnation Golf Course. The housing (if it ever gets built) will be up on the hill, and I believe the County is negotiating to get the land in the valley for ag use.
