So really, the weather we have been having here is just ridiculous. For those of you unfamiliar with SoCal weather, which would be most of you, I will give you a quick primer.
When we have an "onshore" flow, life is grand. It is nice and the breezes being generated by the ocean are cool and refreshing. Usually this means normal or cooler than normal temperatures. There is moisture in the air, and the variance from day to night temperatures is not that big.
But when we have an "offshore" flow, watch out. It gets hot. The moisture is sucked out of the air, leaving everyone with dry eyes and chapped hands. The wind is fierce and warm, often being strong enough to knock things over and the like. The difference between night and day temperatures can be over 30 degrees.
Yeah, so guess which one we are experiencing?
We simply cannot remember a November this hot. For this long. We were thinking of an excursion today and we thought, why not go to the beach? For a while, we rebelled at the notion of going to the beach two days from Thanksgiving.
But we got over it fairly quickly and went to bask in the lovely and quite warm beach weather. The water was cold, but it was hot enough that you needed to periodically dip at least your toes in to feel a bit better. Mr. Personality made some friends and had blast.
And as for me, I say there is nothing wrong with a little pre-Thanksgiving tan.
