On the way home today I saw a big rattlesnake going across the dirt road and down in to the wash. That is the wash where I walk my dogs, of course, I haven't been walking them lately because it is too hot. There is another lady who has 4 or 5 big dogs and she takes them up and down that wash off leash. I hope they don't run in to that snake.
On a different topic, that power outage in San Diego and neighboring areas is really wild. It is amazing how much we rely on electricity for our basic daily needs. No lights, air conditioning, refrigeration, just to name a few. I have relatives in San Diego. I hope they are ok and that the power comes back on soon.
