The Best Way to Start a Hot Day
I was up at dawn this morning. The heat ratcheted up again this week, making it difficult to work outside except early in the morning and very late in the afternoon. So I got up early to get a head start on the day and was able to capture sunrise over the Los Angeles Harbor.
The temperature was already 76F (24C) at 6:15am.
Homer wrote of the "rosy fingers of dawn." No rosy fingers here! As the sun rose over Long Beach in the distance, dawn more closely resembled the eruption of a volcano.
Sunrise officially occurred at 6:50am.
Temperatures are expected to peak today, although it's 92F (33C) now and it was 99F (37C) at this time yesterday so maybe the forecasters overestimated today's heat. I hope so. Wherever you are, I hope you're enjoying the beauty of the day.
