    113F today in LA. Hottest day ever recorded in the City of Angels. We were at 111 and the power company cut our AC at 3pm for 4 hours in the shop and at home. This is the last week they can do that so the hot weather came at a good time for them.

    Beaches were 85-90 on the sand and 100-110 just 400 yards off the sand. Go figure.

    The good news is it can only get cooler the rest of the week.

    When you are not use to that high of a temp, its hot. Phoenix has weeks where it is above 110. In mohave valley we have had days where the low doesnt go below 100. 124 days and 101 nights. got to love the desert.

    We lost ALL power several times today! Made the best of it with a dip in the pool and swimming laps.

    forgot to add the dog puked all over the house this morning. nothing like no ac and dog barf in a 90 degree house.

    at least with the ac cutoff we get $200 off our bill each summer.

    right now the ac has been running solid since 7pm to get the downstairs down to 68 and the upstairs down to below 80.

    yeah, the az can get hot, been there in june and sept and dont want to be there in aug. been to vegas when the high was at night, 118 at 10pm. the low was during the day at 108.

    one thing i have learned about living here is that when the weather goes mustang, nobody can predict what will happen even 24 hours away. the low the last 2 nights is right around 80. so when i get up at 5am and it is 80 i expect it to be really hot the rest of the day.

    our friendly electric co. cut our a/c at 3pm yesterday and the temp in the shop went from 71 to 85 in 15 mins. we will see if they do this again today.

    it was also reported that the thermometer at the station that had the 113F temp broke at 1pm so we don't know if it got even hotter.

    and, it is fire season as well. all we need is a nice earthquake to round things out.

    Is it a rolling black-out where the complete power is cut? If not I would jack the power right off the panel and into the a/c ....eff 'em.

    Would a swamp cooler would work in your area?

    We signed up with the Power Co. to let it regulate the A/C, it installed wireless control to shut off our units periodically to control power usage to prevent power black out. We get few hundred dollards credit for participating. Our unit control are set at 80, the room temp was at 85 and the A/C won't turn on.

    You could always boogie down to the hardware store and pick up a window unit.

    There is a similar program that we have at the house here in FL. The power company can turn off certain things (a/c, water heater), but only for set amounts of time (i think 15-30 minutes at a time every 3 hours) during peak usage times in the summer. We save about 100 a year with it though

    i was nuts enough to ride my harley to deliver some small vinyl jobs in the morning when it was still OK. Later in the afternoon at 110º plus it really sucked. I (usually) wear a full face helmet with the face shield up for air flow but yesterday i closed it as it was like a blow-drier full bore in the face. No fun at all. Got in truck later that afternoon, outside temp gauge said 114º. And supposedly summer is over.
