Hold On To Your Sun Hats

This is Stream of Consciousness Saturday and the prompt words are, ‘hat, het, hit, hot, and hut.’

We are in the middle of a heat wave here in Southern California. The temperatures are into the triple digits. Here in the Coachella Valley the temps are in the teens heading up to 20s, so our huts better be air conditioned and it is good to wear a hat outside. The current heat wave is the result of a meteorological phenomenon called a ‘heat dome.’ That sounds like something out of science fiction. The aliens construct a heat dome over the land to roast the inhabitants into submission. You might say it’s nothing to get het up about. We are having ‘flex alerts’ to prevent rolling blackouts. It’s supposed to start cooling down by mid-week and only hit 108. That’s not so hot.

Stream of Consciousness Saturday, #SOCS, is hosted by Linda G Hill.

    I had to read that twice about the temps being in the teens heading up to 20s. Sheesh! Always makes me wonder what people and animals did before electricity. Glad yours is working!

    Hi Deborah, I have a sunhat just like that. In that kind of heat, all it does is make me sweat! I have to wear a bandana under it. We live in Prescott now where it’s only getting up to 102 so far. LOL. I have chosen this post to link to your name on the attendance roster of June’s Story Chat. I loved your comment about cloning. How else could they medically intervene for everyone? You might like Never Let Me Go, a sci-fi book by Ishiguro. 🙂 Thanks again for commenting this month.
