Man today was a scorcher! Here in Long Beach, less than a mile from the ocean, it was well over 90. I read that even San Francsico was in the 90’s. I’m a little scared that this may be an indicator of what this summer may bring. Last summer, particularly July, was the worst. Around 3 in the afternoon, my shade protected house would get way too hot to bear then. I’d take refuge in a movie theater or bookstore. It was next to impossible to get any music done. Music gear gets too hot and can overheat, unless you have air conditioning which most buildings here do not have since the weather here has been mild for most of its history. Climate change is real. Today when it became too hot, Anji and I had some pie and ice cream at a local pie centric restaurant, all of which had a positive chilling effect. The weather should get back to closer to normal over the next few days; more reason to get our album completed, which it pretty much is.
