I hear the Livermore Valley is forecast to reach 115 in the next day or so.
That's Redding temperatures.

SF is my birthplace, though I have moved on since then.

I am just amazed that today's temperature for "The City" was 106!

106 in SF!!!!!

I would not have thought it possible.

85 is too hot in SF, 106 is apocalyptic!

58 degree high on the mountain today, I wore my fleece lined pants and a long sleeve t shirt under a hoody zip up.

I admit I took my hoody off after a while but I was digging my Yukon golds , exercising. I am.leaving the banana fingerings another week, my test picks were tasty though.. butter would have only ruined the mash potatoes, I only added salt and minced greens from my onions. I swear mashed fingerlings is mana from the gods..

Tonight we will be in the low forties..

It's going to be an early and short leaf peeping season I'd wager...

I guess what I'm saying is move to vermont..

Or

Get an air conditioner?

vermont sounds pretty ideal, but i have to live here for another 2.5 years at least


AC, i'm considering more seriously now. everyone was like oh, it doesn't get that hot out here... and mostly it doesn't. but there's been a few killer days in the last couple months! trouble is, every single window is a horizontal sliding one, so i'm looking at some weirder models to suit those windows, or freestanding ones.

or i could just suffer a few days a year and bitch about it to anyone who'll listen

Ok, today was the first day of September and the high was 67 today here in northern Indiana.
This was the coolest summer I can remember.

Those stand alone floor units work awesome for single rooms if your Windows are odd.

The exhaust port hole for the window is only slightly bigger than your standard shop vac hose..cut a piece of card board to the size of the open window space then punch a hole through that for the hose.

We used those before we moved,one in each bedroom. You would be sleeping comfortably with a quilt right now..

Hot in SoCal too (109) today. And humid - upwards of 40%. Now that is usual for this time of the year.

And yes - it's too darn hot.

okay, related, and maybe this is dumb of me -- but i just moved here a couple months ago, and i didn't realize i needed to keep an eye on air quality alerts as well. so i had my windows open last night blowing in a metric ton of smog and didn't even realize that was bad, except that it smelled funny.

so how on earth do you cope with excessive heat, no AC, and you don't want to open the windows either? :/

My sympathy
Down here in South Africa,in Mpumalanga Province it gets hellishly humid in summer. NOT looking forward to it! It drains me and gives me constant headaches,even nausea sometimes. Humidity is the one climate condition i cannot handle well at all. Also summer here brings Black Mambas,Mozambican Spitting Cobras and spiders the size of newborn kittens

From San Francisco to Los Angeles, California is bracing for a weekend of potentially historic heat, with temperatures forecasted to climb as high as 115°F in some areas of the state. That heat is helping to fuel wildfires, which have broken out in the Sacramento Valley and around Los Angeles. An air pollution specialist with the state’s Air Resources Board urged people especially susceptible to health problems from smoke — the asthmatic, the elderly, or people with weakened immune systems — to remain indoors throughout Friday and Saturday.



So as not for forget - we aren't the only ones...


This is hardly the first record-breaking heat wave to make headlines during the summer of 2017. Earlier this month, oppressive heat throughout Eastern Europe, France, Italy, and Spain was responsible for at least six deaths and the outbreak of several wildfires. The Pacific Northwest also had to contend with extremely high heat combined with smoke from wildfires in Canada earlier this month, creating a situation similar to what is being seen now in California where high temperatures combine with wildfire to create dangerous air quality, fueling concerns about public health. And in Arizona earlier this summer, it was so hot that planes literally could not take off: at least 38 flights out of Phoenix were grounded as temperatures climbed near 120 degrees Fahrenheit.


thinkprogress.org...

And lest we forget our 'wetter' brethren:


At least 21 people are dead and more than a dozen others trapped after monsoon downpours caused a building to collapse in Mumbai.




Vast swaths of land are underwater in the eastern part of the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, where more than 100 people have reportedly died, 3,097 villages are submerged and almost 3 million villagers have been affected by flooding, according to officials. Army personnel have joined rescuers to evacuate people from the area.

The heat in BC has been dreadful as well. 25 degrees is tough but the long weekend will be unbearable. I welcome October with open arms.

Someone switched off summer yesterday on Sept 1. It only reached 68 here in southern Virginia where it's been so hot this whole summer. I loved it. It looks to be another cool cloudy day here today. It's ok. I want to open windows and get some new air inside .

But just to be safe I remember an episode of Charmed where it got really hot in SFO and it turned out it was a succubus so stay away from sexy women for a few days.

I've only visited SFO. It rained .
Yup the whole time. We left after a few days and went to the desert instead spent a few days in the warmth and low humidity in Las Vegas.
But I saw the wharf and Ghirardelli and I rode a trolley and took a cab down Lombard Street so I guess I hit the high points. Lol
