Hot in the city

It was hot in Tucson last month—record-breaking high temperatures were recorded more than once, and it’s a great pleasure to feel the temperature drop, at last, into the 80s and even 70s during the day. It’s nothing like autumn where Heather and I grew up, but it’s a nice change.

In a final display of seasonal calendar butchering, one of the local weathermen (one of the weekend guys, who’s just happy to be on TV) referred to the previous month as “Hottober.” Maybe that’s why they haven’t let him anywhere near the weeknight broadcast.
