The forecast calls for HOT… with varying degrees of HOT…

If you’re in the L.A. area, you can say, “Duh” right now.

I point out to you an informative article from cbs2.com on How To Keep Cool As Temps Rise

Also, it was mentioned here when it was HOT last year, but there are actual Cooling Centers around L.A. especially for seniors and others at risk during heat waves such as this one. More info can be found at the Department of Community and Senior Services site; a PDF of the 2007 Cooling Stations is also available.

You can also find a cooling center in the Greater Los Angeles area, by calling Infoline LA at 800-339-6993 or 2-1-1.

Or, as mentioned on the LAFD Blog:

To learn more about protecting yourself from oppressively hot weather, visit the Los Angeles Fire Department website at: LAFD.ORG

Stay cool, everyone!

  1. Thanks Jozjozjoz for the update. It’s 97 right now in outer monrovia and I am dying.

    Tonights conversation centered around the weather and what people did before A/C. I remembered hearing from friends and family that in the 50’s and 60’s before A/C was common in Phx and Las Vegas people slept in sleeping porches, or in their back patio’s at night. To stay comfortable they took a cool shower prior to bed. To have a coolish bed they’d dampen the sheets, top sheet especially and the evaporation would keep you cool for a while.

    I kept power so far all weekend, now off to the cool shower myself…hope you all have a great weekend. I am.
