Today's highs—Arizona/105° Maine/65°

After a long day traveling, my cats are adjusting to life in the desert. They spend most of their time under the fans or spread out as flat as possible on the tile floor. My sister, who is adjusting two her new housemates, said it cooled down last night to 82°. That's cool?

Back in Maine the days are getting shorter and remarkably cooler. Last night it cooled to 43°. Now that's cool. Sitting outside for dinner and trying to sketch is getting harder as the lovely summer light is going away.
