Drought Tips From Italic Studio

Italic Studio Drought Tips Los Angeles California 2

This week has been hot. Many people are surprisingly raising an uproar, surprised that this is happening now, so late in the Summer. For people who have lived in Los Angeles for years, the September heat wave is something expected: it may be warm all year, but—in September—it is hot.
