It’s really hot in San Francisco right now. Like, really, really hot.
Temperatures in the Bay Area reached 106 degrees Farenheit on Friday. That’s 106 degrees in foggy, chilly northern California, where late-summer temperatures are usually in the high 60s. The 106-degree day broke a record for all-time hottest temperature in San Francisco in recorded history, or at least 143 years.
The city isn’t exactly prepared for record-breaking heat. Most places—homes and public spaces alike—don’t have air conditioning. Residents were warned of a heat advisory and are doing their best to stay cool.
It’s almost midnight. It’s 85 degrees in our house. No one has AC in SF, so every window is open. This sucks.

Currently dying because it supposedly hit 106 degrees today in SF and there is no such thing as AC here 🙂

SF is great until it’s 99 degrees and no one has AC

San Francisco friends without air conditioning don’t read this
Friends with AC hello! Long time…let’s hang out

When I lived in SF people thought I was nuts to have an AC.

Stay safe out there, everyone. San Francisco, maybe it’s time for backup air conditioning.
