In California, summer is now in full force. Yesterday, a thunderstorm was promised for the Sacramento area. Although Mister Jack told me there was a little rain at his work, there was no rain to look forward to at our home. Not even enough rain to rate a trip to the car wash.
Triple digits expected next week.
This week, I’ve been leaving our home around 6 a.m. to walk Elway. I’ve noticed that many people have that same idea to beat the mid-morning heat. The smart ones are holding water bottles or gripping plastic cups filled with a beverage or ice water. At the Open Space, most people walk, push strollers or run. We want to get our exercise in so that we can go home and hide in our air-conditioned houses.
Old weeds, new weeds. Chopped wood and cleared brush. When there isn’t enough rain in California, there’s the threat of fire.
The drought situation in California is beyond hope, good wishes and prayers. All I can do is save water and electricity. And say a prayer each time I hear sirens in the distance.
