Good 50º clear sunny morning. We topped at 95º yesterday. A year ago today we had smoke from numerous fires also and we topped at 108º !!
Yesterday was over the top exciting... went into town to get some canned dog food for Dude. The 10am temps were only 72º and the sky was CLEAR!!! There was no smoke! Heaven!!! The evacuation levels have been raised and there is more control of the fires. Thank goodness!!! The first time in 3 weeks it was good to breath and I had doors and windows open!
Around 4:30 there were a few clouds in the sky! Our sky has been so awful for the last three weeks, this was great!
Then a little after 5pm the smoke appeared over the top of my mountain.
The Cobb salad was created in 1937 at the Hollywood Brown Derby restaurant, where it became a signature dish. It is named for the restaurant's owner, Robert Howard Cobb. Stories vary whether the salad was invented by Cobb or by his chef, Paul J. Posti. The legend is that Cobb had not eaten until near midnight, and so he mixed together leftovers he found in the kitchen, along with some bacon, and tossed it with their French dressing. Cobb's midnight invention became an overnight sensation with Derby customers. Since 1937, more than 4 million Cobb salads have been sold at Brown Derby restaurants.
