It is Sunday morning, and although the current temperature is not yet 90 degrees, the forecast is 110 degrees by late afternoon here in California’s Central Valley.

Yesterday was also supposed to reach 110 but fell a couple of degrees shy. Funnily enough, this heat wave corresponds with a stretch of volunteering at an outdoor fireworks stand. Thankfully, my husband set up a portable swamp cooler there, dropping the temperature by a good ten degrees or so.
