It's the hottest day of the year in Los Angeles today 113 Degrees! Today is Downtown LA's Hottest Day on Record - LAist I've been inside all day today, sitting NEXT to my new 12,000 BTU Air Conditioner that we inherited from our neighbor, and the temperature near me has gotten as high as 86 degrees. Of course it's over 100 outside. My Mom just called, she lives about 5 minutes away, less than 2 miles - and they have no power now, it's a stage 2 power outage. They may not have power until tomorrow. DAMN, time to turn some stuff off.
