Try and Stay Cool Today, and Tomorrow. And Tuesday.

2 PM Sunday
Mod: We don't ordinarily like to do the weather here at The Tattler. Mainly because that is just about all the news outlets in Los Angeles and elsewhere ever talk about, especially now. But this heatwave is quite impressive, and not in a good kind of way. It happens once in a while, of course, but the intensity of this one does seem a bit excessive, even for always sunny Southern California.

As you can see by the graphic I cut and pasted to the left, it hit 111 degrees in Sierra Madre at 2:00 PM today. It could get hotter, with Monday and Tuesday showing some real potential for temperatures that are even higher than today. Here is what the National Weather Service is putting down for us right now.


Mod: While you're stuck in your house today trying to beat the heat, you might want to check out the following column from the always interesting Joel Kotkin. Given the current upheavals here with the Sierra Madre City Hall community planning apparatus, it does seem fairly relevant right now. And you just can't beat that title.

Mod: The Los Angeles Unified School System, home of the high end iPad, has come up with exciting new ways of dealing with student discipline problems. At least according to this Los Angeles Times editorial. The war to end smoking in the boys room once and for all has now been taken to a whole new level.

Mod: One more. Cool picture of our friend Tony Brandenburg and his band The Adolescents rocking the Henry Fonda Theater in Hollywood last night.


Just so you know, the tickets left for Renatta Cooper at will call were never claimed.

  1. The best solution to the heat is lots of beer on ice. I have my plan in place.

  3. 9:40 is right. Alcohol dehydrates - not good on planes, and not good in heat.

  5. If you're sitting in the A/C, dehydration shouldn't be a concern. Alternate with bottled water and you'll be fine.

    Note: Friends don't let friends...drink chloramines

  7. I'm OK with the world coming to an end. My problem is with how soon it will happen. 100 years would be OK.
