    Today was actually chilly! Very odd for this time of year. But yesterday was simply gorgeous! Couldn't adjust the color of this pic to lighten up the buildings without messing up the sky's color

    Nice sky! It was cool here yesterday too. It has been around 104 for the past few days. Yesterday, it was maybe 85. All the rain the last two days have sure helped things green back up.

    Cheers,
