106° Again Today; Took a Walk at the Cemetery

I got up around 6 o’clock again this morning, and was out the door with Sergeant Margie by about 6:30. We went over to the Old  Historic City Cemetery by way of Raley’s. I wasn’t sure the cemetery gates would be open that early, but because of the heat, they’d let the clean-up crews in earlier than usual, so the dog and I just went in after them. Hah! There were lots of flowers still in bloom, in spite of the heat. (It was up to 106° again today, but actually didn’t feel as bad as yesterday because the humidity is less today.) We also saw quite a few neat bugs on our walk around. We were there for about 90 minutes and then headed back home.  There’s an “Excessive Heat Warning” out for the next week or so.  “Daytime high temperatures: daytime temperature values in the valley and foothills will climb to the 105 to 116 range over the next several days. Overnight minimum temperatures will only drop into the 70s or lower 80s…”  Ick.  Really puts a cramp in when I can do my walking stuff…
