It doesn't look as hot here in black-and-white as it does in color.
Another day of about 100° and this is supposed to continue until Thursday when it's forecast to get up to 105° and then start coming back down to the mid-90s again.
For those of you living in the South, and you know who you are, desert temperatures are not like the temperatures in normal hot areas. My experiences living and being raised in places like South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, and South Florida is when the high temperature is forecast to be, let's say 95°, it's going to be somewhere near that temperature for a lot of the day and unfortunately part of the night.
But in the desert it doesn't work that way. It will only be 95 between 4 PM and 6 PM, most of the day will be in the low 80s and night time will be 60s so with humidity in the single digits or teens, living without air conditioning your only uncomfortable for a few hours.
Of course for most folks even a few hours is too much, and as I get older things like that are not as easy for me to deal with as it used to be, but then again nothing else is either. I look back now on living in Miami Florida with its oppressive heat and humidity and wonder how in the world I managed to live and work in a place like that? And of course the answer is.... I was younger.... I was used to it.... And for one reason or another, [too poor to leave] I didn't have a choice.
A ticket booth waiting patiently for thousands of visitors to pour into the County fair..... And It looks like it might be waiting for a long time.
Outdoor stage for live shows at the Fairgrounds.
I'm not sure what these trailers are doing here, and I don't think this Is a storage area.
As I walked by these rather large horse barns at the Fairgrounds I felt something that I haven't felt for a while.... No not that, not that either... It was cool air.
Since they're all empty I walked inside and lo and behold these giant empty barns are air-conditioned! And as you can see there's not even any doors on the buildings. All that wonderful air-conditioning is just pouring outside which is why I could feel it 50 feet away where I was walking. I'm sure they've got a good reason for air conditioning empty horse barns but I'm not about to ask so here's some perfectly logical reasons I've come up with on my own......
The barns aren't actually air-conditioned. Global warming which morphed into global climate change has now mutated into global cooling and for some mysterious reason climatologist don't fully understand this disastrous weather phenomenon is beginning right here in these horse barns.
They forgot to turn off the air conditioner at the end of last summer.
The stalls are actually full of miniature horses so small I couldn't see them.
The Fairgrounds has more money than they know what to do with.
There getting ready for a horse show next weekend that could only be held if the horses wear face masks and have gloves on their hooves.
The Arctic Fox is so hot inside that anyplace else feels cool by comparison.
And last but not least. I've got the Bat flu and my fever is so high I'm delusional.
