Annual gloom

Click to "embiggen"
 This morning I awoke and looked outside and realized we are about to enter that annual Los Angeles weather phenomenon, June Gloom.

"Morning low clouds and fog," reads the weather report - a report that we'll see almost everyday for the next couple of weeks. Low altitude stratus clouds form over the ocean and beach - this is what Angelenos call the "marine layer."

This will burn off by the end of June, but each year it makes Memorial Day barbecues and school graduation ceremonies a little greyer, colder and gloomier than we would wish.

Even so, [The Man I Love] and I are up for a weekend adventure, and I'll have more to show you later.

June Gloom sounds a bit like Seattle. An adventure is just the ticket, I think. :)
