Right now it is 65°, heading to another sweltering high of 84° – the forecast for the next ten days is here.

Today’s block:  Harrison to Alabama, 19th to 20th. These photos were taken yesterday.

Went out expecting a dull morning.

But this day? This is one of the reasons I still love it here, despite the expense, noise, and rising tensions. People were out walking their dogs, admiring the flowers, going to school. And everyone was friendly. I used my camera as an excuse to stop and talk to neighbors, some of whom I’ve talked to before, some of whom I’ve nodded and said hello to, and some of whom I’ve never met. What a beautiful day. If only we had air conditioning!

You can see a map of all of the blocks here. The blocks in grey are being saved for others who have signed up. Let us save a block for you as well.
