Well, they were going to fill this parking lot at Rose and Venice Beach today no matter what they charged. And for all day, I guess that's not too bad. But it's the highest I remember seeing. It was supposed to be pushing 100˚F downtown and the beaches were supposed to pretty warm as well.
I got my bike ride in before ten and you could feel the beach was drawing people towards it. But the breeze from riding the bike felt nice and it seems to have turned out not quite so bad as expected. Weather.com says it's only 84˚ in downtown LA now (about 4pm) and 79˚ in Santa Monica.
But it got pretty warm in my mom's house. Being pretty close to the beach means that you almost never need air conditioning. I closed most of the windows as the day warmed up, but I've opened them now and there's a "cool" ocean breeze coming in.
