Monster Heatwave

Aloha Everyone,

I definitely feel the effects of the heat wave we are having in San Diego County. It has been dubbed as a Monster Heatwave because it has registered 100 degrees Fahrenheit temperature in San Diego County.

August heatwave are not unusual in this part of the country. What is unusual is the length. Most years, heatwaves last a few days. The current heatwave is expected to linger until this weekend. That would make it a 9-10 days run.

Actually, the current outside temperature at our son’s house is 85 degrees. Being near the ocean helps. We are also running our AC.

This morning, I was out of the house by 6:00 am. The air was warm but not oppressive. Having to wear a mask and a baseball cap, a long sleeve t-shirts and long pants to protect myself from getting any insect bites, my body becomes heated within 30 minutes of brisk walking. To hydrate my body, a tall glass of water with lime accompanied my light breakfast.

Compared to Phoenix, Arizona and Las Vegas, Nevada, where current temperature is 110 degrees Fahrenheit, we have little to complain. Stay hydrated everyone!

Aloha -- Cathi
