Weather Report


 Let's see... well, the summer weather in the Bay Area can best be decsribed as...How do I say this politely?  ... complete shit (or "shite" if you're from the UK :).  It starts out all drizzly and misty in the morning and then in the afternoon we get a bit of sun in certain neighborhoods, then inevitably the fog rolls in.  These were taken in the Noe Valley area, at the tail end of a fleeting hour of sun just as the fog was rolling in and the wind was picking up.  It's nearly impossible to have neat bangs with the wind constantly blowing in your face,  but I know, I know, it could be a lot worse (I would trade our fog and wind for a July heatwave though, just to see for myself if in fact it really is worse).  Anyway, one thing that is consistent is how inconsistent our summers are.  I'll probably be talking about how great the weather is in a couple days just you wait and see.

  2. Wow it's funny to see someone wearing tights & a jacket right now, it looks like Spring weather there. I love the red tie on your dress and the way it's blowing in the breeze. Smashing color combo too!
