Los Angeles Zoo Labor Day 2007
Originally uploaded by OctopusHat.

Jules and I had a very nice 3 day weekend which culminated in a visit to the LA Zoo on Monday. We knew it was going to be hot, with forecasts calling for highs between 90-100 degrees, but we’d been planning the trip for a while and decided to dress for adventure and get to the zoo early.

And while it was sweltering we managed to stay (relatively) comfortable and spend a solid 4 hours photographing animals (first shots are up on flickr now) before the heat stroke became a realistic threat. We headed home, jumped in teh pool for a quick cool-down then lounged for a couple hours with the AC and Fans on full-blast. By 6pm we decided we had to brave the lingering blast-furnace-like heat in order to get some dinner at our fav hamburger joint 25Degrees. Minutes after departing the strained powergrid took a big fat turd and a 24 square block area of Hollywood lost power. When we arrived back home to a dark building at 7:30 it was 92 both inside and outside the apartment. We didn’t get much sleep last night, and I’m both groggy and irritable now. 23 hours later, and still no power to our building.
