Wow.

Too spectacularly warm, sunny and gorgeous to blog today.
Record breaking day
Temperatures in Eureka hit a new high today, sending locals out for warm sunshine and cold drinks.
Hitting 79 degrees, the temperature set a new record for the day, according to the National Weather Service.... Other parts of the county experienced even warmer weather, with the airport in McKinleyville reporting 91 degrees and Fortuna reporting the temperature rising to 95 degrees.

I hear 100 in Fieldbrook, someone said 100 in Trinidad, too.
105.5 in Fieldbrook
92 in Loleta
98 On the Van Duzen

S'posedta be even hotter tomorrow - that usually means the fog pulls in for the coast.

Gotta LOVE IT!

Hi Rose, It is indeed a beautiful day. We know you have read this one before; and yet we wanted to post it again for your readers edification on the local elections - specifically regarding Clif, Mark, and Jimmy. Flies in a jar without a lid, struggling to get out.

"...Research has led to the discovery of the heaviest element yet known to science. The new element, Governmentium (Gv), has one neutron, 25 assistant neutrons, 88 deputy neutrons, and 198 assistant deputy neutrons, giving it an atomic mass of 312.

These 312 particles are held together by forces called morons, which are surrounded by vast quantities of lepton-like particles called peons. Since Governmentium has no electrons, it is inert; however, it can be detected, because it impedes every reaction with which it comes into contact. A minute amount of Governmentium can cause a reaction that would normally take less than a second to take from four days to four years to complete.

Governmentium has a normal half-life of 2- 6 years; It does not decay, but instead undergoes a reorganization in which a portion of the assistant neutrons and deputy neutrons exchange places. In fact, Governmentium's mass will actually increase over time, since each reorganization will cause more morons to become neutrons, forming isodopes. This characteristic of moron promotion leads some scientists to believe that Governmentium is formed whenever morons reach a critical concentration. This hypothetical quantity is referred to as critical morass.

When catalyzed with money, Governmentium becomes Administratium, an element that radiates just as much energy as Governmentium since it has half as many peons but twice as many morons..."

If this is global warming, I love it! I will plant bougainvillea!

im all for pumping copious amounts of CO2 into the air in Eureka if we think that it will warm this place up.

the average house in eureka would double in price if the weather were this nice more often.

92 in Loleta. Went for an afternoon walk along the Van Duzen River - it was 98. The poor rhodies in full bloom, wilted.

I watered as much as I could, things that aren't established especially. The pine tree's pinecones were popping all day long, one sure sign of a hot day!

The heat really brought out the fragrance of the lilacs.
