The answer is 5.
I don't know why that is, or why east-west Interstates end in 0, but they do and there you go.
Very humid here, but no rain (yet). Keep the rain that washed out I-10, though. Yikes.
Lois Of The Lost Of Oregon replied:
If you have no sense of direction and can't tell north from a nutsack, just remember: if the highway is north-south it ends with an odd number and east-west ends with an even number! And don't forget that zero is an even number...wait, is that right? Shit, can't remember! I live on Highway 42, but it goes skwiggley and sideways and all over the place just like everything I've ever known, but it ends up at the coast, kind of, so there!
Dale of Hot and Sticky Diamond Sporeings, Norcali responded:
Supposedly One according to 1925 regulations. Doesn't I-5 go North/South from Canada to Mexico?

That would be 5 except IH-69 which must be an exception.

Oh you Marty! You & your number answered questions. lol. My major weakness, numbers.
I think it's "5". If only Sesame Streets' "The Count" was here to help me.
Joe S answered:
The number is 5. Have you heard of I-75? I used to live right beside it.

Jon Stewart enters the home stretch of his 16 years on Comedy Central's "The Daily Show" on Monday, with 12 more nights of jokes at the expense of those who make and report the news before he signs off for good on Aug. 6.
Stewart's exit, the latest in a year of upheaval in late-night television, will be felt most acutely over the next 15 months as the U.S. approaches its first presidential election since 1996 without his comic take.
Attesting to Stewart's cultural import, President Barack Obama is booked for his seventh appearance on the show Tuesday.
"That's not love," Stewart shot back. Love is taking soup to a sick friend. "Love is not saying, 'do more shows! Entertain me!'" he said.
Leading up to the September premiere of the Late Show, Stephen Colbert is anxious to get to know his audience a bit better.
The late-night host launched a new web series, "Lunch With Stephen," on Monday that allows for a more up close and personal connection with his viewers, albeit virtually. For workers who regularly spend lunchtime eating alone at their desks, Colbert wants to join you for lunch every day this week.
"What better way to bond with you guys than over lunch? After all, these days a lot of people eat their lunch alone at their desks watching videos like these," Colbert says. "This is nice. I'm really enjoying myself. I feel like I can trust you."
The Screen Actors Guild is recognizing Carol Burnett for her six decades in entertainment.
The actors' union announced Monday that Burnett will receive its 52nd Lifetime Achievement Award at the annual SAG Awards in January.
Burnett got her start on stage, where TV talent bookers spotted her. She joined the cast of "The Garry Moore Show" in 1959. She launched "The Carol Burnett Show" in 1967, which ran for 11 years and won 25 Emmy Awards.
Burnett is working on a book about the success of her show set to be published next year. Her recent TV credits include appearances on "Glee" and "Hot in Cleveland."
Garrison Keillor, creator and longtime host of the popular "A Prairie Home Companion" radio show, says he means it this time: He's retiring.
In an interview Monday with The Associated Press, Keillor said he plans to step down as host after next season, following four decades of entertaining listeners with his baritone voice and folksy comedy sketches about Lake Wobegon, his mythical Minnesota hometown "where all the women are strong, all the men are good-looking, and all the children are above average."
Keillor said he tapped musician Chris Thile of the bands Punch Brothers and Nickel Creek to succeed him full time as host in September 2016, following guest-hosting spots. He said Thile - a mandolin whiz - will help return "Prairie Home" to its roots as a music show.
Thile, now 34, was 15 when he made his first appearance on the show in 1996. In a statement Monday, Thile said he and Keillor "have lengthily discussed the future of the show with me as host and agree that we should give it a go. There are, for course, plenty of details to iron out, but I'm very excited!"
Keillor will end his tenure as host with performances at some of his favourite outdoor venues, including Wolf Trap near Washington, D.C., Ravinia near Chicago and Tanglewood in Massachusetts, according to "A Prairie Home Companion" spokesman David O'Neill. The location of Keillor's final show as host, in July 2016, has not been determined yet, O'Neill said.
Critics dismissed it as a rough draft for "To Kill a Mockingbird" and readers despaired over an aging, racist Atticus Finch.
But Harper Lee's "Go Set a Watchman" is still a million seller.
HarperCollins announced Monday that "Go Set a Watchman" in its combined print, electronic and audio formats has sold 1.1 million copies in the U.S. and Canada, a figure which includes first-week sales and months of pre-orders. The publisher stunned the world in February when it revealed that a second novel was coming from Lee, who had long insisted that "To Kill a Mockingbird" would be her only book.
"Watchman" was released July 14 and as of early Monday remains at No. 1 on Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble.com, with "Mockingbird" also in the top 10. HarperCollins has increased an initial print run of 2 million copies for "Watchman" to 3.3 million.
When a massive earthquake struck Nepal in April, Nepal's longest-serving "living goddess" was forced to do the unthinkable -- walk the streets for the first time in her life, she told AFP in a rare interview.
Still following the cloistered lifestyle she entered at the age of two, Dhana Kumari Bajracharya also opened up about her unusually long 30-year reign, suggesting the pain of her unceremonious dethroning in the 1980s was still raw.
The Himalayan nation's living goddesses, known as Kumaris, live in seclusion and rarely speak in public, bound by customs that combine elements of Hinduism and Buddhism.
But as the tremor hit, shaking the ground, reducing buildings to rubble and killing thousands, Bajracharya left her quarters in the historic city of Patan, south of Kathmandu, for the first time in three decades. And for the first time on foot.
Dhana Kumari Bajracharya was enthroned in 1954 when she was just two years old and reigned for three decades as the Kumari of Patan.
White House hopeful Donald T-rump (R-Fat Fingered Vulgarian) jumped far into the lead in the race for the 2016 Republican nomination, a poll showed Monday, despite a backlash over his comments disparaging immigrants and US war hero John McCain.
The hotel magnate was the favorite for 24 percent of Republican and Republican-leaning independent voters, the highest percentage and widest lead so far in the campaign, according to a Washington Post-ABC News poll.
He far outpaced his rivals Scott Walker (13 percent) and Jeb Bush (12 percent). The next seven had support ranging from eight to three percent.
But the survey was conducted from Thursday to Sunday, and the Post said most of the participants were interviewed before Trump lambasted McCain on Saturday.
Trump's popularity among those questioned dropped significantly after that latest outburst, the Post said.
Earth dialed the heat up in June, smashing warm temperature records for both the month and the first half of the year.
Off-the-charts heat is "getting to be a monthly thing," said Jessica Blunden, a climate scientist for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. June was the fourth month of 2015 that set a record, she said.
NOAA calculated that the world's average temperature in June hit 61.48 degrees Fahrenheit (16.33 Celsius), breaking the old record set last year by 0.22 degrees (.12 degrees Celsius). Usually temperature records are broken by one or two one-hundredths of a degree, not nearly a quarter of a degree, Blunden said.
June was warm nearly all over the world, with exceptional heat in Spain, Austria, parts of Asia, Australia and South America. Southern Pakistan had a June heat wave that killed more than 1,200 people - which, according to an international database, would be the eighth deadliest in the world since 1900. In May, a heat wave in India claimed more than 2,000 lives and ranked as the fifth deadliest on record.
May and March also broke monthly heat records, which go back 136 years. Initially NOAA figured February 2015 was only the second hottest February on record, but new data came in that made it too the hottest, Blunden said. Earth has broken monthly heat records 25 times since the year 2000, but hasn't broken a monthly cold record since 1916.
Participants carry a portable shrine, or mikoshi, into the sea during a purification rite at the annual Hamaori Festival in Chigasaki, west of Tokyo early Monday, July 20, 2015. The festival originated from an old times' story about a shrine that was washed away by flood and later found by fishermen.

Most Americans would support imposing a term limit on the nine U.S. Supreme Court justices, who now serve for life, a Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll has found in the aftermath of major rulings by the court on Obamacare and gay marriage.
Limiting terms would be difficult, requiring an amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Congress shows no signs of taking up the idea, though Republican presidential contender Ted Cruz has suggested the possibility of justices being voted out of office.
Support for the 10-year term limit proposed by the poll was bipartisan, with 66 percent saying they favored such a change while 17 percent supported life tenure.
The two big rulings in June were widely welcomed by liberals. Nevertheless, 66 percent of Democrats, 74 percent of Republicans and 68 percent of independents said they favored the 10-year term limit idea, according to the poll.
The poll showed broad understanding of the court, with 68 percent saying they knew justices are appointed, not elected, and 60 percent saying they knew the appointments are for life.
Microscopic bugs and mildew can destroy a marijuana operation faster than any police raid. And because the crop has been illegal for so long, neither growers nor scientists have any reliable research to help fight the infestations.
As legal marijuana moves from basements and backwoods to warehouses and commercial fields, the mold and spider mites that once ruined only a few plants at a time can now quickly create a multimillion-dollar crisis for growers. Some are turning to industrial-strength chemicals, raising concerns about safety.
Pesticides and herbicides are regulated by the federal government, which still regards almost all marijuana as an illicit crop, so there's no roadmap to help pot farmers. Chemists and horticulturalists can't offer much assistance either. They sometimes disagree about how to combat the problem, largely because the plant is used in many different ways - smoked, eaten and sometimes rubbed on the skin.
In states that regulate marijuana, officials are just starting to draft rules governing safe levels of chemicals. So far, there have been no reports of any human illness traced to chemicals used on marijuana, but worries persist.
A participant dressed as Santa Claus takes photos with tourists in front of the Little Mermaid statue during the World Congress of Santas in Copenhagen, Denmark, July 20, 2015. The World Santa Claus Congress dates back from 1957 when its founder, Bakken entertainer Professor Tribini, decided to bring Santas together for some summer festive fun. On Monday, the Santas visited Copenhagen's Little Mermaid statue and paraded through the city center accompanied by elves and even one person dressed as a Christmas tree. Some sang traditional songs and posed for pictures with the public.

Pennsylvania officials on Monday were investigating the weekend death of a man killed by a rattlesnake bite at his family's vacation home in the state's rural northwest.
Russell Davis, 39, was bitten on the ankle by a timber rattlesnake shortly before midnight on Saturday, said Don Logan, manager of Bennett's Valley Ambulance Service, which transported the man to a the only hospital in Elk County.
Logan said that Davis, after being bitten, walked back to the cabin, located in Elk County, telling his girlfriend she had to take him to the hospital. He started having trouble breathing along the way, then went into convulsions. She stopped at a tavern to call an ambulance.
Doctors at the hospital were able to restart Davis' heart but he died while being taken by helicopter to a larger facility real hospital in Pittsburgh, about 125 miles away.
Elk County draws large numbers of tourists who come to see the herd of some 1,100 elk that roam the forests woods there.
A retired Arizona State University professor is taking his pursuit of a death certificate for Billy the Kid to New Mexico's highest court.
Historian Robert J. Stahl filed a petition Friday with the New Mexico Supreme Court to order the state's medical examiner to create the document for the legendary outlaw, the Santa Fe New Mexican reported.
Stahl says he hopes the court will order the Office of the Medical Investigator to consider the evidence and determine whether William H. Bonney's death can be certified.
According to most accounts, the Kid was fatally shot by Lincoln County Sheriff Pat Garrett in Fort Sumner in 1881. But some claim Garrett shot someone else and the Kid took up ranching or escaped to Texas under an alias.
Stahl is a member of the nonprofit Billy the Kid Outlaw Gang, an organization formed to protect the "true" history of the Kid. He wants to silence rumors that Bonney escaped the sheriff's bullet.
