It’s summer in Los Angeles and we are having a bit of a heat wave. So the Valley is 100+ degrees and it’s even hot here by the beach. The desktop widget on my PowerBook says that it’s currently 81 F. While that’s not that bad (I used to live in Houston, Tx), it is hot for the beach. And the way my apartment sits, the sun arcs across it and it just cooks like an oven. The bad part is that it’s the living room where I want to spend the evening watching TV that gets it worst, and late in the day/evening, when you want to watch… :o(!
