On a typical summer morning, after rising, I walk through the house turning on fans, turning off the alarm system, opening drapes, but rarely opening windows. The heat and dirty air of a San Joaquin Valley day prohibit that. The air conditioning, set at 80 degrees, often comes on at 6 a.m.
Not this morning. We have had a push of marine air into our valley. The breezes have cleaned the air and the temperatures have dropped. There is even a cloud cover this morning.
Although I have turned on fans, I’ve also opened the windows. The temperature in the house has dropped to 70 degrees. Terry, out hand-watering certain yard areas and wearing shorts, claims to be “freezing.” We are loving the weather.
