The weather is cooling off - we've dropped about 10 notches and now bake at 100 degrees Fahrenheit. The mayor, in a news conference from Washington, D.C., has told the citizens of Los Angeles to stay indoors if we can, and visit cool rooms located around the city.
Cool rooms. That must be like a shopping center with chairs. Whatever. Truth is, most of us are laying low, venturing out only when the need arises.
Me, I've been in and out of my car six times, in and out of two supermarkets, one library and a sukkah, briefly. Having ridden my bike all over town yesterday in 110 degree heat, I'm taking advantage of the cooling trend.
I"ll lay low when it rains. May it be speedily in our days.
