Populated Areas Are More Popular

I know – that sounds a bit odd – but I just ran across an article with research that shows that according to census data HALF of the people in the United States of America live in 146 of the 3,000 counties in the states.

Life in Laguna Beach, California

Today – April 28th, 2008 – is pretty hot although not as hot as yesterday. It hit the 90’s here in Laguna Beach yesterday and that’s unheard of in April. It’s in the 80’s today which is still hot for here by the ocean, but hey – it’s tolerable!

My friend Lorraine said the polar icecaps are melting. Uh oh…

I guess it’s a good thing I am 4 blocks from the beach and NOT right on the ocean! That way if the water rises I’ll still be in a good place.

Of course I hope that is not true, but hey – who knows! Crazy stuff happens in this world and I would not be too surprised if the climate changes and that affects people.

The good news is that while I am complaining about it hitting the 90’s yesterday is that we did not have it as bad as other areas in Southern California as many areas hit the 100’s and even up to 110! Yipes! That’s insane!

Not long ago I lived in Sherman Oaks and that kind of hot weather was not uncommon. Here at the beach however we expect it to be close to 70 most of the time. It’s quite a shocker to jump into the 80’s or 90’s.
