SPEECHLESS SUNDAY:  Raindance in Palm Springs We have been doing our Raindance in the Palm Springs area for the last week as fires swept through the mountains surrounding our valley.  Last night I was awoken by the soothing sounds of the rain coming down.  We are told that the fires were 49% contained, but I'm hoping that this wonderful rainstorm will help the firefighters put out the rest of the fires!

You have if you're here in Palm Springs!  Ha!  Hard to imagine if you've never experienced true HEAT.  I am a "local."  From my perspective, triple digits are the summer norm..nothing to concern myself about.  My "norm" is..anything up to 115 degrees.   Sounds nuts, but when you live here in extreme heat, your blood thins (my explanation of course), and you just adapt to the heat.  Yesterday was the 2nd hottest day of my life here in the City of La Quinta.  It was 122.  That is HOT!  Here's what it feels like.. 1.  Your breath going in and out..actually burns. 2.  Moving is hard..you just have to slow down; in EVERYTHING! 3.  KNOW that when you get into your car, you cannot touch the steering wheel.  When you roll down the window, the gusts of created air (by driving), are NOT cooling. ...
