Down at the grocery store it was about 85°F at 3PM...in Truckee! This time of year, the sun stops shining directly on the southwest walls of the DaveCave around 5:30PM. I use a small fan to blow cool wind from the northern window through the place to keep things civil until I can open those southwest windows.
It could be hotter I suppose...I just read that Austin, Texas just recorded their 70th day over 100°F for this year, with another ten days forecast to top the triple-digit mark. The article said the longest 100°F+ heat wave on record is 160 days, though they didn't say when or where the record's from.
I dig the dichotomy, though...here in the West, we've recorded seven months of below normal temps, and above normal precipitation, while in the Midwest and Southeast it's drought and heat. Mix it up there, Ma Nature! Somethin' for everybody!
Damn, it's still hot in here...the Giants booted another one, and I'm still having trouble with the new Digital Cable...I made some so-called Hawaiian comfort food, Spam Musubi...solidarity with the hot sweaty Tradewinds set as it were...I was taken in by the hype, I guess...I liked the "home-grown, grass roots nature of the dish...peasant food is always the best cuisine regardless of location...yada, yada...

|Mmmm...rice that falls off the bone...er Spam...|
In the morning I'm running into Reno for provisions...hopefully I can find a shaker of Nori Komi Furikake! I'll be taking some photos of Lincoln highway stuff too!
