I'll bet it wasn't as hot in China. That would prove it's all their fault.

Thank god and Greyhound; the heat wave is over. Well...

Perhaps I spoke too soon.

It's been hot for Seattle -- mid- to upper-80s -- although my new house stays fairly cool (good cross-wind). This weekend we bought an umbrella for our glass deck table, which helps a lot if you want to sit outdoors.

It's been so hot, in fact, that this morning I had to shave down a door. The heat made it start sticking in the doorjamb.

It's only 82 here today. We seem to be moving into normal weather. I hope.

I recently had to shave down a door because it stuck in warm weather. Only took me fifteen years to get around to it. (Okay. I didn't really do it myself, but it's done.)

What’s weird is an internal door started sticking — but the cedar gate in my fence has actually SHRUNK by 1/4” in the heat. Last week it was sticking. This week you could pass a pencil through the gap.

We have two doors about eight feet away from the (previously) sticking door, on the same level, that have never had a sticking problem. There are two doors about eight to ten feet away from the sticking door, on the lower level, that have never had a sticking problem.
Just that one dumb fucking door.

I don't pay too much attention to news, so I wasn't aware this is going on. Japan and South Korea are catching it.

My daughter and son-in-law have just landed in San Jose, coming to visit us.
It is now 112.7 degrees here. How are things in Brooklyn, Richard?

Actually, not so bad, just at the moment. 70s at night, 80s during the day. Just as well, since my AC just gave up the ghost. I expect I'll have to replace the compressor - it's the one that came with the apartment, so it's a full 30 years old. My apartment is a duplex, with the lower level (where the bedrooms are) at sort of half-basement level. Downstairs is usually ten degrees cooler than upstairs, so we only ran the air occasionally, and in many of those years very occasionally.

There are supposed to be thunderstorms around, but whether we actually get hit by one is very iffy. Got caught on the street without an umbrella last week, but mostly it's been raining at night.

Sounds like nice weather. It got up to 114.1 here earlier.
Now down to 102. Ahhh.

Weather has been nice for several weeks. Far too much fog in the mornings, but highs in the seventies and low eighties - even had a few days that didn't quite reach seventy. Today it was 110 degrees. WTF?

The big fires are about finished. They have had them at 98% contained for a few days now, with little or no growth. Together, the two fires have eaten nearly eleven hundred square miles. That's a lot.
