Heat = Insomnia

Sunday, July 23rd, 2006 | BayArea, Private | No Comments

The heat this weekend is unbearable. It is 1:00am and without airconditioning and a fan there is no way I can sleep. This reminds me of the heat wave in Europe when I lived in Heidelberg three years ago (and apparently also this year). Humid and it does not cool down in the night.

The record heat wave comes two months after San Jose suffered through one of its coldest and rainiest Aprils ever. And if that isn’t driving your inner thermometer wild, consider the unusual spike in humidity that’s turning Northern California’s pleasurable summer nights into sleepless tosses and turns. Tormented by the heat, many have resorted to sleeping in briefs or buck naked. | 07/22/2006 | Unusual mugginess makes heat feel worse

Well I guess I am not alone…

So I figured out I head to Santa Cruz or half Moon Bay tomorrow to cool down …

“It’s not even really that cool out on the coast,” said Half Moon Bay State Beach park assistant Amy Riley. “It’s 74 degrees, which is better than the other places, but usually we’re fogged in.”She said hundreds of people filled the parking lot at Francis Beach in Half Moon Bay by 11 a.m. Saturday. The CHP reported bumper-to-bumper traffic along Highway 92, right now the Peninsula’s only major link to the San Mateo coast | 07/22/2006 | Heat records set as misery rises

So much about that idea, but at least I can go to the local Rinconda Park swimming pool…

There was a backup of a different kind in Palo Alto, though, where parents and children lined up for about a block outside Rinconada Park swimming pool Saturday morning, waiting to get in. The place was nearly full within 30 minutes of its 11:15 a.m. opening. | 07/22/2006 | Heat records set as misery rises

Thats it I give up.

Mussels with Fries @ Chapeau!

Chapeau! in San Francisco is currently Karen and my favorite French restaurant. The food is excellent and the value of the $33 3-course menu is excellent.
