yes, we have no banana (creme frappucinos)

Oh, one more thing about the San Francisco heat wave. Saturday evening Jeff and I still were comfortable in shorts and t-shirts at 9:00 when we drove his uncle and cousin to the bus station. Afterwards, before taking his mom back home, we decided to stop at a Starbucks for refreshing frosty frappucinos. The parking lot at Starbucks was extremely busy, with dozens of people lounging around outside–pretty unusual for that suburban shopping center–but when we went inside we discovered that the unusually high temperatures had generated a run on cold drinks that evening; when we arrived, they were completely out of ice and couldn’t even make an iced coffee, much less a blended drink.
