Wallace Creek's station is the nearest to our house -- it's in the shade, and it's in a draw, and is often ten degrees cooler than the average for all the other stations in our metropolitan area. The airport station gets a little higher than ambient sometimes -- at least I hope it does, because the reading, if I read it right for that one, says 108F. I'm thinking, if I don't keel over on the way home, I'll be farming by moonlight.


Update: 106 in Eugene today (Wed.), 102 here -- house was 68 at 5:30 pm, which after three days of triple digits, is pretty decent. Considering. It's 77 in here now; 87 outside, yet inside feels much hotter. I'd find this interesting but my brains have turned into a bubbling bowl of bleh.
