Some like it hot

Some, perhaps. But I am not among them. A drive from Phoenix to Los Angeles, through the desert on Interstate 10 in the heat is not all that much fun. At one point the temperature outside plunged to 99 degrees Fahrenheit. For most of the time, the temperature was in the 100-105 range. Although the car is air conditioned and we had cold water and cold cokes with us, the drive was hot and difficult. Fortunately, my husband was driving because I immediately responded to the heat by getting enormously tired and could barely keep my eyes open. The winds were so high that we couldn’t even eat at the rest stop as the lettuce pieces began taking flight from our salad.

For that reason, we stopped early and are in a comfortable room in a motel near Palm Springs. Tomorrow, we are planning to go to Los Angeles! I can hardly wait to see my daughter-in-law and my six precious grandchildren who are there for the summer and getting to spend some time with them. Then we’ll feel as if we’ve really arrived!

  1. Hah! While in LA. you’ll probably wish you were back in the calm desert. It is now so crowded there that it takes 1/2 an hour to travel five miles.
