Chilly weather returns to Los Angeles

Yes, it’s finally happened. The temperatures in the San Fernando Valley, the part of L.A. where I live, are plummenting. Today should be a mere 85, down from the week or so of 100 degree weather we’ve been having. If this trend continues, I’ll have to start wearing shoes and socks, not sandals, soon!

Ah, but September here can be a tease. The temperatures often drop the middle of September, lulling one into thinking Fall has arrived. Then, wham, along comes another week of 100 degree weather. But finally one day, when the heat seems too much, you wake up and it’s 65, not 100, and Fall has come for keeps.

And in completely unrelated news:

Avast me bilge rats, Aarrr! International Talk Like a Pirate Day is Sept. 19!
