DH and I were actually in Cabo San Lucas for that time 2 years ago but we heard about it from our daughter who was brother, pet and house sitting for us. I took her on a nice air-conditioned shopping trip.
I got out of my car at 2 pm PDT and the car thermometer read 98F. We went from right on track for rainfall and a high water content snow pack in the Sierras, to the driest Mar and Apr in a long time, to extreme heat this early and to almost certain water rationing because of the last 2 things.
We are now having our gardner clean out the brush to prevent fires, like we do every year. We have just a little lawn (it came with the house - I wouldn't have planted it) which we are going to let die because we are not watering it. I see an order of decorative rocks in the next 6 months.
Normally, I love to cook. Tonight we are getting take out.
in the SF Bay Area.
