Good morning or whatever part of the day it is for you. Today is Friday March 6, 2015. The temperature is 52.2°F and the humidity is 36% at 4:01 a.m. PST (-8 GMT). Weather Underground shows sustained winds at 1.1 with gusts of 3.8 mph. It was clear when I stuck my head out this morning. I saw the Big Dipper and a big fat full moon. Weather Underground is predicting a 0% chance of precipitation and a high of 85 today. There’s also a wind advisory, saying, in effect, wind of 20-30 miles an hour with gusts up to 50 miles an hour are expecting in canyons and passes the morning and into Saturday evening. In short, the classic Santa Ana—rising temperatures, dropping humidity.
I’ve been writing of the stepfather of my friend (whom I’ve been calling Dora) and his last days. When I wrote yesterday, I said I was surprised that he had made it through the night. He hadn’t. Dora texted me about 6 a.m., after I’d finished posted my journal entry to let me know that he’d passed away about 3 a.m. The family had been up till midnight, talking and laughing, remembering times together. It was a good memory for them.
I for one am relieved that Dora’s stepfather is no longer suffering. That doesn’t lessen his loss to his family, though. It’s very sad.
Thanks for reading. Hope you and yours are all well and happy. Hope the day brings you good things.
