Pandemic Journal, Day 457

It was hot today – the official San Jose temperature topped out at 95, but the thermometer outside our house went well over 100. I took a walk right after my Toastmasters meeting, where I saw this industrious bee.

We turned off our air conditioning at 4pm to honor the California ISO’s Flex Alert (after cooling the house to 70!), and it was tolerable inside until we could open up again about 10pm. We had Kimchi Tuna Salad for dinner – it didn’t require heating up anything, and it used up the rest of the kimchi before it could go bad!
