HOT….. And HOTTER!!!!

 
UGH!!!  Yesterday our area had the hottest temps in the country.  It was 98F!!  And today?  99!  I just checked the thermostat thermometer and it read 85 in here.  So we broke down and turned on the A/C.  In April!!  Even the dogs refuse to go outdoors.  Tomorrow it’s supposed to ‘cool off’ to 77 and by Tuesday, 64.  So for all of you folks living with snow and cold weather, there may be some warmer weather heading your way!

We have tons of moroccan food here so we invited the son of our aunt who passed away, over for dinner tonight!  He’s pretty much an A$$  but he was SOOOO nice to her during her last weeks.  He finally came through!  So, Moroccan Chicken, Couscous, Cumin Potatoes, Cucumber Salad and sauteed Squash/Zucchini!  Oh yeah… And Brownies for dessert!

 Opened the newspaper this morning and saw this photo on the front page:
 
Compton
 
Five people were injured, four critically, Saturday afternoon when a twin-engine aircraft crashed nose first into a Compton house and sliced into the one next door with one of its wings, authorities said.

The Cessna 310 crashed just before 4 p.m. in the 500 block of West Cypress Street, said Ian Gregor, a spokesman for the Federal Aviation Administration. The craft came to rest with its tail sticking almost directly upward from the middle of one of the houses in a neighborhood of spacious, modern homes.

The plane, which was registered in Nevada, was heading from San Diego to Hawthorne Municipal Airport, Gregor said. It was about a mile and a half away from Compton/Woodley Airport, a general aviation field, but he said it was unclear whether the pilot was trying to make an emergency landing.

Compton Deputy Fire Chief Marcel Melanson said two of the injured were the plane’s occupants and three were on the ground.

He said some had already been pulled out of the house by the time firefighters arrived. All were taken to area hospitals.

A neighbor, Kenneth Wyatt, 48, said he was sitting in his house watching TV when he heard an enormous thud.

"It shook my house," he said. After running outside, he initially saw nothing. Then he saw the debris and smoke.

"An airplane had come through the roof of my neighbor’s home," he said, still incredulous.

Wyatt said he saw a young woman — the daughter of one of the house’s renters — at the window yelling for help.

He and two other people tried to open the door of the badly damaged house but couldn’t get it to budge. They helped the young woman out a window, and when she said her mother was inside, they clambered through the window themselves to search for her.

"I saw the pilot, so we got him out," Wyatt said.

Then he spotted one of the residents of the house moving under the rubble. Several people struggled to move that man out of the home through a sliding-glass door.

"You could smell the fumes," said Wyatt, his jeans stained with the blood of the injured whom he helped. His own house was spared structural damage. But his backyard gazebo was ruined by debris from the aircraft, he said.

"It’s not the first time we’ve seen someone pulled out of a plane," said Wyatt, who has lived in Compton since childhood.

It has not been the best weekend in So Cal…

    99 degrees…you say that like its a BAD thing!
     
    I just can’t imagine a plane crashing into my living room – I’ve tried before, when I heard a similar story, but no luck. If someone were telling me the story first-hand as it had happened to them, I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t be able to say "I know how you feel". JUST CAN’T IMAGINE IT…
