Global Climate Change and Weather Perfection
Now those of you not familiar with the weather here in Sodom by the Sea, we have three seasons that I refer to as Sun--Late September through early November, when the city warms up and clears up, what most people call 'Indian Summer' but which we just call 'summer' cause it's the only one we get. Rain--November through February (or May in an 'El Nino' year) when it does exactly that...rains...and Rains...and RAINS! And Fog--the rest of the year--when we're lucky to see the sun and wind lashes this god-forsaken rock above the Pacific as if we're being punished for our wicked ways.
But San Francisco does have one redeeming characteristic, climate-wise: The best brunch weather on the whole god-damned planet. From 10:00 am to 1:00 pm most days, anytime of year, the weather here is terrific. In fact, when friends ask what time of year they should visit our fair city, I answer simply..."Brunch".
This summer has been different, though. We're getting plenty of warm days--well warm for us, the rest of you would refer to it as FABULOUS--temperatures in the 70's, clear skies, and calm winds. In point of fact, this weather has been spooky, and I'm almost sure that it's due to global climate change. So my burning issue is this, the weather has been so nice that I'm thinking of buying a car just so I can add a few more tons of C02 to the atmosphere. Is that wrong?
I remember downright hot days in S.F. this time of year from when I was a child. It is just luck of the draw. This is a good year.
Fashiongirl... I like beef. I really do, but I don't think I could eat enough beef to keep San Francisco warm. ;-)
Libby! Long time no hear, and you're certainly right. Parking's a bitch. When I first moved to San Francisco, the main reason I gave up my car was because I lost the garage space that I was renting.
Mind you, over here in the glorious sub-tropical south pacific I would be happier with a stable climate.
I remember warm weather in the city too but not this early in the year I don't think.
It's been a while so I could be wrong.
There are others. Restaurants and Congress chimed in too.
Sumo, my guess (and I'll have to ask Granny 'bout this) is that the reason our weather has be so nice is that California's Central Valley is not as hot as it usually is. The hot weather to the West is what brings the fog in here.
Granny... I was kidding. :-) Thought the whole "freedom fries" thing was ridiculous. BTW (re: weather) how are things where you are? Cooler?
Nope...'Margherita Pizza' the other San Francisco treat.
PT... Well you know that I take my patriotic duties very, very seriously. I'm headed out for an Escalade right now.
