Heat

It was hot today, in a very demotivating way.

Somedays the heat comes and it is possible to embrace it and just lay about with it everywhere. Then there are days when one tries to fend it off by closing windows and blocking out the sun. Eventually the heat seeps in and the tools used to block it suddenly intensify it until it is too much and surrender becomes impossible.

Today was one of those days. Even now at night it is still too hot to move around much or sleep.

Makes me look forward to moving to a cooler clime.

A lot of heat has been coming into the Bay Area recently, in particular near my house it has been getting into the high 90’s and perhaps low 100’s (roughly mid to high 30’s (305’s) for those fans of Celsius (or Kelvin)).

That sort of heat starts to greatly limit the options of what to do. They are sadly reduced down to activities like siting inside a cool house with a computer and sitting around a cool pool with a book. Sometimes there are radical activities in the heat like getting up to get a drink and (rarely) moving around deck furniture.

However as I am soon to be in Seattle for a bit of time I am doing my best to embrace these arduous activities of summer, I must make sure I contribute to the appreciation of the heat.

Of course my opinion of the warm weather would drastically changed if I had to work or do anything in it. Let us hope that does not happen anytime soon.

I am more alarmed by the smoke then the actual fire.

I don't know if any of the nearby hills have not burned in the past four years.

So Santa Barbara is on fire again, according to The Daily NexusBBC and the giant plume of smoke in the southern sky.

Of course this fire is related to the fact that it has gone from windy with a slight chill to surprisingly toasty. And with the heat comes a lack of motivation or energy to do anything.

Especially when dressed in a fencing jacket, metal lamé and a nice padded mask.
