HOT: 116 today in Redding!!

ReddingIn Redding, California you can find hot real estate buys, hot air balloon rides, hot worship leader dudes like me and of course just plain hot!  A couple years ago, my town had the honor of being the "hottest on earth".  It was surreal seeing the weather in Bagdad and Death Valley lower than your hometown! Today we reached 116.  Well, there was a bank sign that said 120!! 

Yes, Redding is famously hot.  I did not believe that when I moved here, since my first summer living in Texas had a headline that read "100 Days Over the Century Mark".  That Texas experience quite tamed a San Jose, California boy like me.  Even though it is indeed a dry heat here as opposed to my Texas days, it really does not matter much when you get over 105. 

By the way, our choice for a family movie tonight…Eight Below.

  5. Are you ready to think I am cool? Way back in the day I managed an In-N-Out and they have this program called “All stars” which is where they pick the best people from whichever stores and then when a new store opens, they go run it and train the new associates…Yup, I got to trek up to Northern Cali…. to Fairfield and Napa to open those stores. We didn’t open the Redding store, but we visited that location. Ahh, good times, good times. A chocolate shake from In-N-Out Burger sounds good on a hot day like today. It’s pretty hot here in Kansas too. But no I-N-O here….We just have Taco Bell.

  9. I should add I’m the proud owner of the JS Bach Action figure, which proudly sits atop my office bookshelf. This company makes a number of interesting action figures. http://www.mcphee.com/categories/action.html Some of my favorites are the Crazy Cat Lady action figure, Barista action figure, Lunch Lady action figure, and the Marie Anntoinette action figure with ejecting head. (I kid you not!)

  13. Man, I wish I had the view of the mountains you have. I’m righteously (or not so righteously) jealous, bro. Great picture. Hope all is well.
