Last night was annoying, in that over the night the temperature and humidity went up.

Sometime near 5am, I could no longer sleep. I had to close the windows and turn the AC on to lower it to a temperature I could sleep in.


I've always had trouble sleeping when the temperature felt high (either very high temperature, or high temperature and humidity). This was not an asset when I grew up in a house in San Diego without AC.

My good thoughts for the day
Having just driven across the country, I was struck by two things:

our country is beautiful. I mean really, really beautiful. There's an ugly spot or two (Eastern Nebraska) but the rest of it makes up for that. Wyoming is just gorgeous with its rolling plains and occasional mountains. And of course Yellowstone is beyond wonderful. The coast of Maine is just amazing. The salt flats of Utah are spectacular. The mountains of Nevada are like nowhere else in the world. And the forests of California are just awe-inspiring.

I was struck by how much progress has been made in cleaning things up since I was a kid. Nowhere on the side of the road did I see litter, which used to be endemic. I saw many trucks, but only a couple of the old kind that belch black soot. Most of them were new and sleek and clean. And the many wind farms I passed in Wyoming were both very, very cool looking and a good source of clean, renewable energy. Obviously, there's still a lot to be done, but it's worth feeling good about the progress so far.

Isn't it?

Sounds like you took a route farther south than I did (I mostly used I-90... though you must have come up north to get to Yellowstone? Oh, right, but you were aiming to end up in California, while I ended up in Seattle.)

I just got all my pics from my trip digitized, and I'm thinking about (maybe next year) trying to blog my cross-country trip with a ten-year delay. If nothing else it'll be interesting to see how much I remember after ten years.
