The summer rains haven't started. It is really dry and the mountains to the south and east are burning. Huge plumes of smoke are visible in the morning when I drive to work. It is beasty hot- we have broken several records. Phoenix, 110 miles to the north, is worse- always about five degrees hotter.

The humidity is very low (about 10 percent) so it feels cool in my house with the swamp cooler on. But my skin is way dry and as I type this it itches and my heel is cracked. This is the torment I endure so that I can enjoy the relatively warm winters.

Blogger's photo function is screwed up again- imagine a pretty sky scape here...
