RE: "Snow Days", SoCal Style


Like much of the rest of the country, SoCal is experiencing very hot weather.
When I lived in the MidWest, we would get "Snow Days", almost every year.
A heavy snow fall or extremely cold weather would bring things to a halt till the weather moderated.
As this is being typed, about 12:30PM local time, it is 89F with calm winds at Long Beach airport, which is within 5 miles of the boat yard, which is within sight of the ocean.
Guess this will be a "Snow day" SoCal style.
My wood working project will have to wait.
No way I can wax it in direct sun light.
(Obligatory wood working content)
BTW, as you move inland, add as much as 20F to that 89F number.

Well, it was quite a day.
Records temps all over SoCal.
Record electrical usage.
Made it to 97F at the old boat yard, which for all practical purposes, is at the beach.
119F at Woodland Hills, an L/A suburb. it was an all time record.
First time I've used the pool in several years.
Trust me, it was a good place to be.
Wood working will have to wait.
One thing I can say, would rather have it hot than cold.
Still remember trying to get to work one morning when it was -19F.
Don't ever want to experience that again.

Guess you won't be visiting Canada in the winter anytime soon.

What's wrong with -19F?

Some of those sunny days with that temp in January or February are great for hooking up the trailer and going for sheet goods at the local HD or real lumberyard depending on my need at that point. Last winter it was haulin' the carpet refuse from my living room to the dump.
Those are nice days. A hot chocolate, the woodshop, and later on a few Wood Works and NYW videos. Does it get any better? I don't think so!

Both, that's why I'm self employed.
