This is not supposed to happen here. The high temperature in San Francisco yesterday was 106 degrees. That broke the old record of 103 for the city. And the previous high for San Francisco on September 1st was a mere 90 degrees in 1952.
According to the National Weather Service, this highly unusual heat wave is supposed to continue through Labor Day. In fact, they said today may be even hotter than yesterday, possibly setting a new record high temperature for the City by the Bay.
Worst of all, like most residences in this typically cool city, my house is not air conditioned. Not even a single room air conditioner. Just a few ceiling fans. And when the temperature outside reaches 106 degrees, all ceiling fans do is circulate hot air. It’s not much cooler inside a home with no air conditioning than it is outside.
Well, hopefully this heat wave will abate in a few days and San Francisco can get back to its more typical high temperatures in the mid- to upper-sixties at this time of the year.
Written for today’s one-word prompt, “continue.”
