But it's a DRY heat!

Oh, California, I love you, I love you, I love you ---- Ahhhhhh. This is what I mean when I say I don't care if it's 90 degrees out and that I kinda love it. All you people on my facebook page who are whining about this "heat wave" ------ hahahahahahaha! I totally don't believe you wimps any more. Try the 90 degrees at 100 % humidity and a sheen of biting bugs clouding the air everywhere you go and you will understand that a California "heat wave" is actually perfect hiking weather.

I think I am never going to go back inside again. Especially because dad shuts off the airconditioning at night, so it has been 60 degrees inside all day (bleah!) and then it pops up to 78 at night (double bleah!).

I have been working a bit on my online class, but still need to do a lot more prep. This is interfering with my desire to go hiking and then hit the beach. Hmm. And of course, I got derailed on my article what with course prep and packing and riding around on a plane and whatnot. So I need to get back to that too. But --- sun! And a blue sky without a single cloud in it!! And a nice breeze!!! And shops and restaurants that all have lovely shaded patio areas for lounging!!!! And OCEAN!!!!! Must! Go! Run! Around! In! Surf! Must work. NO MUST PLAY ON SAND! Must work. NO MUST PLAY ON HIKING TRAILS!

Um. Ok, I'm going to try to go back to work, but I may have to rethink my goals and to do list for the summer. Hmm.

When I first moved to CA, someone told me that it didn't become unbearable until the temperature topped 100. At that point, it didn't matter that the heat was dry: it was HOT.

Uhm. Completely jealous. I'm going to cry. I really thought the CA weather was going to be the last thing I'd miss. Ha. How wrong I was. When you're comfortable outside most of the year, it's miserable to have that taken away from you. And then the mosquitoes!! Just kill me. Even having grown up here, this is going to be the biggest adjustment of my life. Meh x 10.

I saw a pic of this gorgeous house recently that had a screened-in pool, if you can someday go for that kind of fanciness. If it'd work in Florida, it could work in IN, right?
