(oops, forgot to hit publish… this was from Thursday.)

View of Lake Union from Lakeview Blvd looking north. I-5 is immediately out of frame to the right.

The weather this week was supposed to be bad. Like, really, bad.

Tripple digits was on the forecast. Portland got that today.

Like I wrote earlier, most people in Seattle lack air conditioning, so having it be that hot is somewhat of a problem for a large majority of the population.

Of course, Canada has lit itself on fire again. The picture was from my lunchtime walk yesterday — not retouched to make it look smokier. It’s actually that smokey.

The smoke blocked some of the sun, making it 7-8º cooler than otherwise!

It doesn’t sound like a lot, but it really is.
