I used to live in Apple Valley and Palm Desert. I remember those lovely days. I still can't decide which is worse. 114 with no humidity or 99 and 70% humidity. I'm leaning toward the 99 plus humidity.

Right now the BUGS are eating me alive. I am keeping my horses indoors during the heat of the day and turning out at night. I miss the desert most during the summer. I used to LIVE in my swimming pool, I don't even go swimming here.

Foal
118 yesterday afternoon when I took Sherwin's feed down to him. I wanted to hang out with him but I knew I'd collapse. :(

I'm hoping to spend some quality time with him tonight after it's mostly dark. It'll only be about 115 then. Ugh.
