I know that my sister in San Diego would LOVE to get just a fraction of this rain seeing that there are at least 8 fires, temps of 100+ and 5% humidity in the area!!! Some of these fires may have actually been set intentionally…that’s another blog post! YIKES! And, if you aren’t familiar with SD, most schools and many houses do not have AC so these temps are devastating for them. They even called off schools today because of the heat and fires… That being said, I don’t know about all of you but I am TIRED of rain, soggy, humid, sticky weather and would love to be able to get some more done in my garden plus enjoy outside events.
Even with the crappy weather, there are tons of places you can enjoy art this weekend. Check them out!
