Fish Out of Water

Musings and observations about life from an East Coast native now living on the Left Coast in the California State Capitol since 2004. This fish has made her home in Madison, WI (7 years); Portland, OR (2 years); Las Vegas, NV (7 months); Middlebury, VT (3 summers); Marne-la-Vallee, a small town east of Paris, France (6 months); Middletown, CT (3 years); and Marshfield, MA, the fish's coastal hometown 40 miles south of Boston (17 years).

Location: Sacramento, California, United States


Day 72: Triple Digits

Sure signs of hot weather in Sacramento:
  • No need for a light sweater when walking over to the gym at 6:15am
  • Getting warm during the 1-mile bike commute to work @ 8:30am despite wearing a light, sleeveless dress
  • Seeking any patch of shade that exists anywhere, even just the shadow from a street sign
  • Watching the temperature in our townhome climb up to 82 degrees even though the thermostat is set at 76 degrees and the a/c has been on since 8am
Yesterday and today, we hit the triple digits in Sacto, with a high of 104 at 3:45pm yesterday afternoon and already 102 as of 3pm today. *sigh*  Last year, we had a glorious June with mostly 90s and minimal use of the a/c unit.  Perhaps it's payback time??? 

At least it feels as though it's "only" 98, according to, and it did cool down enough last night for us to open up the windows around 2:30am for a few hours of natural air.

And it's all still better than the nasty Midwest or East Coast humidity!
