Rialto topped out at 116 today. That's Coachella Valley-style heat.

I used to travel to Ridgecrest for work in the late 1990's. I remember getting out of my car and walking across a parking lot in late july and my shoes started melting. I think it was 120 or so that day.

I used to go out to Ridgcrest too, maybe the mid 1990s at the China Lake NAS. I have no idea how they recruit people to live and work out there.

I used to hear lot of strange stuff from the locals about that base. Area 51 type malarkey. Thought it was a bunch of crapola until I saw a fast mover takeoff into the sky at dusk with no running lights. Strangest sounding jet I ever heard. Fastest I've ever seen as well.

What do you think it was ? UFOs and strangers from a different planet, galaxy or time dont exist but if they do then the govt should tell us. I guess they feel people would panic which im sure many would.

My dad says all this type of stuff are just planes that we are keeping secret. One secret plane crashed near Roswell a long time back. Of course that made all the crazies go crazier. The government won't admit these things because they don't want other governments to know what we have. He said he saw an aerial map of Area 51 recently that has a new hangar in it. New aircraft he suspects. I guess a lot of the concepts we had in the 80's for planes are now possible to make because of technology. I forgot which technology he has suspicions of.

It's been hot here, and we have no air conditioning. Thankfully my office does.

The temps in the IE are suppose to cool down to 85 on sat, 81 sun & go back up to 96 by weds. The perfect temps for me is 60-70 day & 45-59 at night.

Yuk, you got hit hard. I have family members just west of there near RC.

Fresno topped out at "only" 110 yesterday (highest temp we've had this year).

We are now starting back down today. 105 forecast for today (Thursday) but then a steep drop all the way down to 85 on Saturday . Should be nice outdoor weather this weekend.

You may have missed it but last week on PBS Huell "That's Amazing" Howser did a one hour "Road Trip" episode exploring the Fresno County Fruit Trail, stopping in Centerville and some of the other areas you visit up here. Maybe if my wife and I have time we might drive it this weekend and pick up some fresh fruit.
