Heavy marine layer right now, which will burn off in a couple of hours; then upper 80's today in the valley and about 80 on the coast (8 miles west of here). Tomorrow 90's, and then 70's for a while after that.
yeah, winters are brutal here. it is so stark looking. and BROWN.
it's not bad if it snows, but even that gets old. watching everything
come back to life again is the best time of year here. but then you
get the humidity going into June and the mosquitoes and the spiders
as big as your hand...go onto the photos and I will post a pic of the
monster I found in my son's sandbox lid last year. it was fully the
size of my hand.
and, typical to the weather patterns out here, it got into the 30's
last night. sunny today and mid to high 60's later.
