Monsoon Season, or The Sliding Scale of Cool

For the last week we've had thunderstorms of varying intensities, at least one a day. Sometimes it rains as well. They say it is monsoon season.

It's great to wander around outside and not think about how hot it is. It's also weird to think of any temperature below 100 to be cool! The human body seems to have a sliding scale of cool.

Speaking of water, or the lack of it, the Walter Utility have finally put their rates up. Too little too late in my opinion, but every incentive to save water helps. Frankly I think the big hotels could mothball their water features as an example of conservation, and the many golf course could revise their landscaping a bit too.
