California Weather

Some days I love California weather. Okay, let's be honest, I love it most of the time. Back when I worked for Ernst & Young, I'd fly out to points other and my coworkers would invariably wonder incredulously, "Wow. I couldn't live there. It costs too much to buy a house." And I'd say, "Yeah, it's expensive, but have you seen our weather?" Then they'd usually mention earthquakes. I think the best kept secret is that it's been 15 years since the last serious one in Northern California, but Florida keeps getting multiple major hurricanes every year. Personally, I'll take that trade off any day. Clearly.

As I was saying, I love California weather. Today on 280 (as I cruised through amazingly good traffic), I started at home with a sunny morning, rounded around Cupertino to face a beautiful rainbow against a charcoal grey sky, followed by a double rainbow, and then found myself in a torrential downpour as I passed through Los Altos. By the time I parked at work, there were some light sprinkles and big blue patches showing through the clouds. Add to this the already picturesque rolling green hills and I just wanted to go sit on a hill with a warm coat and a big umbrella and watch the clouds roll in for the rest of the day. Instead I went to a lecture and discussion with Jared Spool. The weather will still be there tomorrow. I love it when the rain comes to visit.
