That was some week, wasn’t it? With temperatures moving back toward normal, we can all breathe a sigh of relief and hopefully go back to our normal routines. Of course, many folks had little choice but to maintain their normal routines this week, and simply put up with the heat. I’m particularly grateful for the postal carriers, the sanitation workers, and the many other folks with outdoor jobs who persevered and thereby helped keep our lives running smoothly.

Normally I’d be out there among them, taking long walks and investigating the goings-on in our area. But I have the luxury of, when absolutely necessary, being able to drive around in air conditioned luxury, only stepping out when I need to take photographs. I did so this week, when I borrowed my wife’s electric car (which was fully charged prior to the heat wave) to check up on Redwood City’s large development projects. At each I saw plenty of people hard at work, despite the heat.
