This year, Los Angeles has had a funny winter. We barely had any cool weather and already we’re back up to 90 degrees at the end of April. I know that I shouldn’t complain when the east coast got covered in snow, but it does feel strange to have barely taken out our Uggs and other winter clothing.
Today I got a collapsible cup in the mail and it couldn’t be better timed. When I go walking with my dog, she often likes to stop for a drink of water on these hots days. We love walking to the beach and there is rarely any shade often for a mile or so. I try to sometimes take her walking in the mornings when it isn’t so hot, but this isn’t always possible.
As you may have heard, California is also in a dire way when it comes to water. We are in a drought and it doesn’t seem to be getting better. With the continued hot weather, it doesn’t help the situation.
We will see what happens to this state and how it will affect our daily lives. Until now, we haven’t seen any change in that our water bills have stayed the same and there are few rations/sanctions put into place to conserve. I can only imagine it will hurt the price of food at some point, but I do hope the farmers find another way to hydrate their land.
Until then, I am grateful for the sunny days that allow Maggie and I to hit the beach. We enjoy these times so much and even if we already are only wearing t-shirts, we are happy to be together.
