News Flash – IT’S HOT!
Yesterday was the final concert in the park for the CSD Summer Concert Series and the rising mercury kept the crowds away. I was in attendance with my fellow Lyon Real Estate agents at our booth in the park, and it was truly sizzling. The concert series has been a big hit this summer with people enjoying the summer weather and enjoying the entertainment. However, as the heat climbed to +102, the enthusiasm was drained from those brave enough to come out before the sun went down.
Truth be told I like the heat. It’s one of the reasons that I enjoy living in El Dorado Hills. I enjoy the seasonality (by California standards) and summer heat is part of that dynamic. I have to chuckle however when I read those vanilla real estate descriptions of the climate in El Dorado Hills. Here is how the summer weather is described by one of those sites;
Summer days are very warm but typically cool down pleasantly in the evenings thanks to the Delta breeze. The highest average temperature in the hottest month (July) is in the mid-90-degree range. Temperatures do sometimes exceed 100 degrees, however most new residents accustomed to more temperate summer weather from milder climates such as that of the San Francisco Bay Area tend to adjust quickly, since the heat is dry.
Isn’t that priceless – Yep – this heat wave is no big thing – since the heat is dry you hardly notice it.
Get real! – below … a little truth in advertising.
The summers in El Dorado Hills are warm and for the most part enjoyable. However, during a couple of stretches every summer, we are visited by the Gods of HEAT. Get in the pool, turn up the AC, have a cold one. You will not adjust, but you certainly will survive … and when the sun goes down we have the most spectacular evenings!
