heat wave

It's like 90F in LA right now.  Much against everyone's probably rather pleasant perception of this climate, it's not nice. The air is bone dry (Santa Ana desert winds) and my sinuses feel like I just sniffed a bucket of sand. Thanksgiving is only days away and it's too hot to even wear shoes. Don't get me wrong, I am wearing shoes.

They are playing christmas music at all the stores and malls, which turns out ot be a rather surreal experience. This is just flat out ridiculous.
