They are predicting a heat wave here, too. It might get into the mid
or even upper 70's. Brutal.

All the women here seem to keep a stash of shorts and tee shirts and
other flimsy tops that only appear during our rare heat waves. Maybe
they always wear those tops, and we just never see them under the
parkas. This coming Saturday, you won't be able to see the grass in
Dolores Park for the bodies.

Notice the gradient:

SF is the cold spot, and temps increase at about 1 deg F per mile from
there.

Wow!  Look at those SF area humidity numbers!

When we hit peak temperature this afternoon the humidity will be 4%.

No sweat, we sublimate >:-}

Well, we have this "ocean" thing. But occasionally the prevailing wind
switches to from the east, and then it gets hot and dry. Luckily, we
never have hot and wet simultaneously.

One big reason I moved here was for the cool, humid climate and low
pollen count. Steroids and a little RF ablation helped too.

Pretty hard to simmer something with no water.  

Anyway, enjoy your summer. I hear they do dirt and rocks very well out your
 way. ;)

Being from the Great White North, I start to melt at around 75F but am comf
ortable in shirt sleeves anywhere above freezing in still air.

Vancouver, BC, running around 19 - 22C these days. That is around 66 to  
72F. Mind you it rains a bit here...not too humid, nothing like back  
east! I grew up in Toronto - that city has heat AND humidity in spade  
fulls in the summer. Yuck...

I remember--I lived there till I got married and went to grad school. (UBC  
is my alma mater.). Vancouver's a nice place when the weather's good, but t
he grey skies and continual spitting rain got me down. Toronto seems almost
 as cloudy, and much colder in the winter.  

NY is much sunnier. Except for the large cities and western Long Island it'
s also super green and leafy, unlike the southwestern US.

For me the main attraction is I can ride my motorcycles year round. Not  
many places in Canada give you that option!

I always thought that motorcycles should be legally equipped with

Actually I'm surrounded by corn fields and cattle and horse ranches;
and the world's source of Valencia oranges is just a few miles to the
west (Chandler Heights).

It's all acclimatization... when I was a student in Cambridge, off
came the parka above freezing.  Now I'm acclimatized to heat.

Nah, you just turned into a lizard without noticing.  Had any strange

Nope.  Though the chemo is inducing a nasty scaly skin condition :-(

But only 4 more days to go, then purty pictures.

Try some Clobex, steroid cream. Fixed me.

That's probably clobetasol propionate (I'm not familiar with the  
trade names you have there). It's pretty strong stuff and could  
have undesirable side effects like reduced immunity, diabetes,  
etc especially when applied over a large area.

Why don't you try a milder steroid first and see if it does the  
job? Like fluocinolone acetonide or hydrocortisone valerate. I've  
used those myself.

The clobex works best for me. In very small amounts. A small dab once
or twice fixes things that it touches and things fairly nearby.

A milder steroid might be good to try. Fluocinonide is pretty good.
