Is It Summer Yet?

The Desert
The southern California coast is still waiting for summer. From San Francisco to San Diego, the high temperature has been in the 60’s. This reminds me of the summer of 73. We lived in Santa Monica and I worked in Culver City. Didn’t see the sun until September. When we wanted sunshine we drove into the Valley.

Anyway, tired of wearing jackets in July, we decided to take a couple of days off and go to Palm Desert to warm up. And warm up we did! A balmy 121° on Thursday at 1:00 pm. When we got back into San Diego on Saturday at about the same time, it was 71° – a 50 degree difference!

All that sand in the desert makes me want to watch that great motion picture, Lawrence of Arabia. Enjoy the clip:
