The hot desert summer seems to have arrived. I walked early yesterday morning at the Desert Botanical Garden and that just might be my last walk there for a few months. It was 82 degrees when I arrived at 7:00 AM and 92 degrees when I left a little over an hour later. But, that's nothing compared to the 108 degrees the day reached between 3 and 4 in the afternoon. Those are temperatures we usually don't see until July. Fingers crossed that this hot spell will ease up a bit by next week.
