Notice the Cooler Weather, Anyone?
Today, our computer is not about to explode like it was for the past two days in the sweltering heat. "The National Weather Service forecast highs for Thursday of between 69 and 79 near the Los Angeles County coast, 86 to 94 inland, 84 to 94 in the San Fernando Valley, 87 to 92 in the San Gabriel Valley, 88 and 93 in the Santa Clarita Valley and 82 and 91 in the Antelope Valley," reported the Long Beach Press-Telegram.
For the past two days, temperatures soared into the high 90s and low 100s in some parts of the city which in turn jacked up the need for air conditioning and other power consumption uses. And that seemed to freak the Department of Power and Water out who sent out a handful of press releases asking residents to conserve, conserve, conserve.
