The heatwave is finally over. Todays high is to hit 81 with a low tonight @ 50. Tomorrow is suppose to be only 74 degrees. What a difference compared to just a few days ago.

Next week its suppose to peak @ 90 degrees but that beats 108 anyday. What a relief! Ill need a blanket on tonight & tomorrow night but thats ok with me & my felines.

Today's (Saturday's) high in Fresno is forecast to top out at 78 or 79 degrees. Big drop from that 110 earlier this week. I was just in the backyard and there is a nice breeze blowing. If things work out I can get out and do a lot of yardwork and gardening this weekend.

And, though I'm less certain of this, it seems to me that Santa Cruz was warmer in July & August than it has been in the last decade or two. There was always that morning marine layer that predictably burned off by noon. Now, the marine layer often doesn't burn so quickly and is cool a lot more often. To my observation, anyway. (Any long-time S.C. residents there to confirm this?)
I was in Santa Cruz (and Monterey and Pacific Grove and Carmel) last week! The weather was SO nice!!! Usually I am freezing my ass off when I go to these areas, but it was like 70's and 80's at the beaches and 80's and 90's inland. It was really pleasant. I hated to come home!!!

Chuck is slowing down now @ his age. It wont be long before he cant lift his leg to kick someone. It happens to everybody sooner or later.

Chuck will always be an ass-kicker in my book!

If he stays in shape and stays limber there's no reason he can't be kickin' ass in his old age. I'll be the guy could still win an ass-kickin' contest even if he lost one leg and had his arms tied behind his back!

I did miss it, so I'll have to look for it online, because Huell is amaaaaaaaaazing.

I love Huell! We actually ran into him a couple of years ago at a gas station in Oakland while refueling our rental car to return it. He was being hassled by panhandlers. My son and I said hello to him and he said "Oh, what now!?!" We all laughed because we were like the only people who didn't want anything from him.

I watched his segment a couple of nights ago on In-n-Out Burger. Very interesting and amaaaaazing!
