It was terribly hot in SoCal this weekend. 105F just a few miles inland, 112F in Woodland Hills, 115F in Palm Springs. I stayed indoors all weekend nursing the tail end of a crappy summer cold with the A/C set at 78F. According to State and Local power experts ... anyone setting their A/C at 77F or lower will be individually responsible for blowing the power grid and creating rolling blackouts ... I did venture out Saturday evening taking Cookie, aka The Cook, to Dog Beach.
