California Fallin. And Whining.

There really IS a season called fall in California. Maybe our leaves aren't as stunning or our weather as crisp (try incoming record HIGH temperatures in the Bay Area over the next few days---UGH!) but we do have an autumn however brief and void of fantastic foliage it may be.

For those of you unfamiliar with our state's true climate (I know people think it is always 70 degrees here), the seasons (and emotional state of our populace) in many areas of California go like this:

Spring: February-May

We whine that it is still only 60 degrees which results in it skyrocketing instantaneously to the high 80s.

Summer: June-October

We whine about the blistering heat--which for most is anything over 77 degrees and declines with your age.

Fall: November (which day(s) is always TBD)

We whine that is it not cool enough yet and that we need some RAIN.

Winter: December-January

It gets COLD (read: 50s) and rains and we whine that we miss the sun.

So here we are in our brief autumn with a bout of summer temps headed our way. Then just you watch. It will get frigid (again---50s). We are wimps. And whiners.

But for today, it is fall. And it is beautiful.
