Extremely hot

October 1, 2010 - Karin Elton
My sister returned to Minneapolis recently after spending a week visiting her daughters in Los Angeles. She was there when the temperature hit a record 114.

I don’t like it when the temperature climbs over 80; I can’t imagine being in 114 heat. However, she said it wasn’t bad because there was no humidity. Her daughter didn’t have a fan or air conditioner in her apartment and they slept fine, she said.

From a blog on The Huffington Post website: “Tourists carried not only cameras Tuesday but also bottles of water and — usually a rare sight in sunny Southern California — umbrellas to shield themselves from the sun. Several said the heat caught them by surprise.

"We had to buy new clothes. We brought winter clothes,’ said tourist Jenni Kinsey of Cardiff, Wales, dressed in a halter top and shorts, and clutching a nearly empty bottle of water.”

I don’t know why you would bring winter clothes to wear in Los Angeles, Calif., Jenni. My sister didn’t wear the clothes she had brought either. She mainly wore a sundress, but I suspect she didn’t bring wool sweaters and mufflers.
