I left Oakland and traveled across the Delta into the San Joaquin Valley. When I hit the valley, the temperature gauge registered 92 degrees and continued to climb. I watered the circle garden on the way in, my new procedure. Both weeds and intentional plants are thriving on the irrigation drip. I waited for sunset to survey and water the front slope garden.
The house was a reasonable 74 degrees. I pulled down a fan from upstairs to cool off the house tonight and to give me better sleep. Opening the doors at either end of the house creates its own wind current, assisted by the fans. The house mostly holds the cooler temperature throughout the day.
