California Early Summer

I think it was Mark Twain who said that the coldest winter he had ever experienced was June in San Francisco. We're not that bad, but NOAA is pressed to come up with different ways to say the same thing. "Decreasing clouds"  gives way to "some sun"  which changes to "some clearing"  and is followed by "partly cloudy."

It all means the same thing. If you are three miles inland you will get two hours of sun in midafternoon, but it you live at the coast you will not see the sun until July. People come here from Arizona and sit on the beach in shorts and sweatshirts, wrapped in big beach towels, looking stunned and rather pissed off.

I find that quite amusing, actually. I'll bet the Texans would like to have our weather. We could use theirs...
