Almost there...

Thursday, August 30, 2001

Last night I headed up to the city to help Tracey pack and feed her yummy Indian food (mission accomplished!). On the way up I started thinking about the weather. All day it had been fairly warm at Stanford. In the eighties probably. Warm enough that we turned on the fans. As I drove toward SF, I saw the clouds pouring over the coastal mountain range and by the time I reached the city, it was misting. I had to turn on my windshield wipers. What's amazing to me about that is how constant the weather can be in one location, and yet five minutes up the road is a totally different climate. Weird. I think I like that better than the description I often hear of places like Texas or the midwest in general: "Don't like the weather? Wait five minutes. It'll change." That's just not true around here. Sure, if you go five miles it's really different, but in any one spot, it's doing it's own thing and really happy doing it.

I like it here. I just wish we could afford to buy a house.
