Good morning, Penny,

Those conditions are what prevail in the San Joaquin Valley and
Sacramento Valley every year, and, with irrigation, supply most of the
US with produce.

We had a rare rainstorm here on Tuesday, bringing the temperature down
from the high 90s-low 100s where they had been for weeks and weeks. We
have enjoyed a wierdly cool week after an eternity of heat. (I looked at
our water and power bill for two months ($358) and had to sit down and
mop my brow. Here's hoping the coolth will continue for a bit, to spare
us the watering and cooling which we must do each and every year.
