Snow birds have fled the area.. bout time.

Been hot for for a while now.  Past two days 109 and today was 111.



A few days ago, the forecast for Tues was 122F, but looks like the have backed off from that.

It's a dry heat though, about 13-15% humidity.

All you need is Time, Aptitude and Desire ... and you can build just about anything...

The first Flex Alert this year.

California ISO Issues Statewide Flex Alert Due to Heat Wave

The California Independent System Operator Corporation (ISO) has issued a statewide Flex Alert, a call for voluntary electricity conservation from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Tuesday, June 20, and Wednesday, June 21.

Consumers are urged to conserve electricity especially during the late afternoon when air conditioners typically are at peak use. Consumers can help avoid power outages by turning off all unnecessary lights, using major appliances before 2 p.m. and after 9 p.m., and setting air conditioners to 78 degrees or higher.

During times of high temperatures, demand on the power grid can be strained, as air conditioner use increases. The forecast peak usage for Tuesday and Wednesday is expected to exceed 47,000 megawatts each day in California ISOs service territory, which serves roughly 80 percent of electricity customers.

For more electricity conservation tips, visit the ISOs Flex Alert website at http://www.flexalert.org/save-energy.

I'd say that Flex Alert was a bit late.  They should have issued it for yesterday when it was in the 90's and 100's around here, oh well.  It's actually cooling down.  Right now, we are 16F degrees cooler than this same time yesterday.  Our natural air conditioning (marine layer) must be kicking in.   :D

Nearly 20,000 electric customers in the San Francisco Bay Area lost power because of high temperatures Sunday, a PG and E spokeswoman said. At 10:30 p.m. Sunday, 19,529 customers were in the dark with a majority of those in the East Bay and South Bay, spokeswoman Jacqueline Ratto said. Between 7:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. crews restored power to 22,500 customers. By 11 a.m. Monday, 2,944 customers still did not have power. The majority left without power are in the South Bay and the Easy Bay. "Severe heat in the Bay Area is causing widespread outages," Ratto said.
