Is it just me, or does it seem Sonoma County has decended into the Seventh Circle of Hell? Seriously, I can’t imagine the surface of the sun being any hotter. After walking outside from an air conditioned building, it’s like a giant is breathing his hot breath in my face. Having a house whose inside reaches the approximate temperature of the internal combustion engine doesn’t help either. I can’t wait until I leave for Ecuador on Friday so I can escape this unearthly heat.
