Am I Back in Manila?

It's just been unbelievably hot the past few days. They say that with the marine layer by the beach, it's actually cooler in these areas than in the valley, but that doesn't mean much when it's in the upper 80s outside, it's really no consolation.

Normally I'm used to the regular California summer weather - dry heat. But this time it's just been so humid that I feel like I'm back in the Philippines. I went for a run today and came home sweating buckets, so I jumped in the shower (cold water) and stood there for about five minutes after washing the soap off. When I stepped out, I already felt warm and there were beads of sweat on my nose again. What the... ?!

I remember too that summer in California meant hot days but cool nights - meaning you could get away with a tank top and shorts during the day but you'd better have a light sweater ready for the evenings when the sun goes down. Well last night I was all ready for the evening chill, but when I stepped out of the gym in my sweater, I couldn't stand it and I had to take it off.

I'm really glad that we don't live in the Valley anymore. Imagine the heat there! We'd be roasting!
