So, I got up this morning and it was 54 degrees. Four hours later it was 107, just east of Indio.
Later at dinner at a restaurant named "Wang's" (appropriately enough). I was sitting at the bar next to a guy trying to impress the guy to his left. "I'll have another Cosmo???" Rising inflection.
The food was very good, however.
Long, hot day: 429 miles.
