These are the last days of summer. At least that's what they say on the news and in the marketplace. But here in Southern California, it only gets hotter as the days grow shorter. (At least the pools won't close just yet).

But -- Holy Dallas Raines -- early this morning, with temps stuck in the mid-70s, we've got thunder and lightning!

Unfortunately, the electricity in the air has no bearing on California's energy supply, which will continue to be overly stressed thanks to HOT weather forecast through the weekend. Flex yer power, kids.

And a few drops of rain won't do much of anything for our parched landscape (ugh... only 2.3 inches downtown since last October). Coming soon... Santa Anas.
