Stuff You Can't Get Here

There's a couple of things you just can't get here in Eureka: hot weather and Crystals Louisiana Hot Sauce. As I type this at 1:30pm, while Boise is 108 and Vegas pushes 110, it's 61 degrees here in Eureka. We have a word for that back home in Florida: winter.

And if I wanted the charming and beautiful Susan to whip me up a big platter of her awesome buffalo wings, it couldn't happen before today. But now, Crystal's is in the cupboard and the universe is right again. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU Lyndsey and Andrew. Obviously your package was not x-rayed because it would have never arrived had anyone truly did their job and discovered the contents of the package. Way to go camouflaging the package's contents with the Winnie the Pooh blanket and diapers. That was brilliant.

We just got back from Los Angeles, where highs reached upper 90's and over 100, which gave us no break at all from the heat in Tucson. On the drive back, the display on the dash that purports to show the outside temperature hit a high of 115. As we got much closer to home, we encountered thunderstorms with big patches of heavy rain. That brought the temp' down, for which we're all thankful!

Frankly, 61 deg. sounds heavenly...although I know very well my teeth would be chattering.

Glad to hear you got some familiar tastes from home! It's even warmer here in Seattle! It's been in the 70's...apparently summer is just starting up...guess it hasn't reached Eureka yet...crazy!
