While the official high temperature in Albuquerque was 101ºF (38.3ºC), the temperature in the east side of the building when I left the office was 107ºF (41.7ºC). I stopped by Costco on the way home and parked in the shade under their solar panels. When I got in the car to leave, the temperature still read 107ºF. The temperature did not change until I got home and it went down to 99ºF (37.2ºC).

Hot here, but hasn’t breached 100 yet thank god. Say what you will about cats, Spunk sure knows how to work it for the camera.
Spunk is a professional kitty model. He has had to model all is kitty life to pay off his debts for all the expensive things he’s destroyed. Thanks, Brian.
Beautiful views with Spunk 🥰
My pleasure. You guys had high temperatures today. Is it cooler now?
It’s down to 70 outside.
Oh, it is nice now. Have a great night everyone 🤗
Spunk is once again the star of the day 🙂
Thanks, Rudi. He likes being in the spotlight.
Thanks for making me see things in perspective. I thought we were having hot days with temperatures around 30° C. I hope it’s not to hot for ice cream…
It’s perfect for ice cream. Thanks, Herman.
Epic to read that Spunk is a professional kitty model. Just saw comment on my down here!
Spunk the destroyer started early on his modeling career. Thanks, Shey.
I thought of you last night as i watched a Nova special on the owl, how it is with its babies etc. and remembered your wonderful pictures.. thanks for that! I don’t know if I could endure such hot temperatures.. guess it is what one gets used to. your pictures as always are amazing.
Hi Chine dream. Temperatures like that in Paris would be unbearable. It’s so dry out here, you hardly notice. Owls are so much fun.
Oy! That is hot!
And so are those images!
Boiling hot!!!! I really don’t look forward to those later on in summer!
At least you’re a bit cooler at home, not to mention the beauty surrounding you! Spunk knows! 😉
Spunk likes it hot. It reminds him of him. Thanks, Marina
Of course!!!! 😉
The selection of photos is beautiful, as always, and I enjoy seeing Spunk’s little face in there, too. It is a lot cooler up here this week, hovering in the 60s. We are getting a little rain, but enough.
The temp is still dropping to the high 40s at night at our house. Thanks, Lavinia.
Intermission LOL. As if we need one from all this beauty. 🙂
Spunk thinks you need an intermission to look at him. Thanks, Mary Jo.
Of course he does, but he does have a point. He’s gorgeous. How thoughtless of me. 🙂
It’s really hot where you live! Wow!
It cools off in the late afternoons and evenings so it’s nice. Thanks, Flo.
I am soooooo thankful severe heat hasn’t hit Long Beach. With no a/c, I usually spent my days nekked in front of a fan. Now that I have a job, I can’t do that anymore and I dread it.
Darn jobs get in the way of all the fun. Thanks, Leen.
wholly molly I’m melting reading about the heat Timothy but blowing out the wishing flower ( I forget the name of it) for some cool days for you. Spunk looks no worse for wear for it. great pics🌷🌷🌷🤗
It hasn’t been that hot here, but almost. Then add the humidity, and it is in a really sweaty yuck.
So with this humidex, we’ve been into the low 100s.
Spunkie-Poo 💋 looks adorable.
Jeep is here, lounging around the computer. She’s trying to sneak a paw onto the keyboard.
Ha ha, Resa. Jeep wants to do some cat-like typing. It’s amazing the things cats can do when they get on a keyboard. Heat and humidity are a horrible mix. The dry heat is a lot easier to take.
OMG! She’s cleaned her mouth on the corner of the screen, now she’s reclining alongside the keyboard.
It’s so humid here; the AC unit was sucking so much water out of the air, that it couldn’t keep up. A sodden chunk of ceiling fell down. Then they added a water pump.
Okay, I have to go. Jeep is DEMANDING kisses and attention!
I’ll go sew for awhile.
I’m exhausted from kissing the Jeep. She’s napping now.
I love how you find the beauty all around you, even amidst the heat, and humidity, wonderful photos, Tim! 😍
Looks like spunks giving advice? Haha!
Great shot, Tim.
Spunk always as a piece of advice to give. Thanks, Inchcock.
Yikes! That’s a bit toasty.
Wow! I’m in love with that Iris!! Such gorgeousness .. Spunk too of course and then to top it off, skies loaded with clouds and colour! 🙂
Thanks, Julie. Do you grow iris?
I do Tim, but nothing like yours!
Gosh I forgot to say how gorgeous Dr Huey looks .. do you think he minds sharing the space with the bamboo?
No. I keep a clear space between them and cut the bamboo that grows up from under him out. He’s quite tolerant.
Good to hear! 🙂
