As far as I'm concerned, summer is over. School started, days are getting shorter -- we're done. It's been a very very cool and overcast-morning summer anyway.
Until today. Suddenly today, summer weather kicked in. It's HOT! What the heck happened?! Summer, where were you?!
Of course, this is one of the most wonderful things about living here in the Bay Area. I moved to California expecting to escape winter, but found that you still can't go surfing after work in January because it still gets dark early. But summers -- ahhhh, no humidity, no bugs, no stickiness, no oppressive nights. It's actually too cold for me in summers here, but we do enjoy great comfort in July and August as compared to our East Coast counterparts (provided you stay out of San Francisco that is).
But, I'm still done. Winter, dark, rain -- bring it on.
