    The only person in Sacrotomato is the Govenator and his ceegars. Nobody else in their right mind would live there... too wet in the winter, to damned hot in the summer.

    Usually highs of 85 or so, breeze blowing off the bay...

    Ya always know how hot it is by observing when the fog burns off in the morning.

    San Jose is NICE. Boring weather... but NICE.

    Allright that makes 2 people in the sacramento area!

    Sacramento does have hot summers, and they are especially unfriendly to photographers.. cloudless skys for 3-4 months straight, and contrast-reducing smog/haze. I allways look east and see huge banks of clouds over the sierra nevadas, but im unsure how far away they are. If they are in the nearby foothills or more torward the peaks of tahoe. Either way, i wish i spent my summers there.

    However winters are quite enjoyable. It's not nearly as wet as Oregon and Washington. Its only cold for 2 months... december and january.

    Sacramento has quite a bit of historical sites. And while it does not have the granduer of other places, it is diving distance to San Francisco, redwoods, Big Sur, Yosemite, Lake Tahoe, Mt. Shasta, ghost towns (Bodie!), Santa Cruz, Monterey, Malkoff Diggings, Death Valley, Mono Lake, Alcatraz, Point Reyes, and the list goes on..

    Darin, I'm the guy who got your enlarger. (thanks, btw, it's working out great!)

    I'm in Roseville, though right now I'm in Pennsylvania for a while. I'll be back in the fall.

    I've always said that the great thing about Sacramento is that it's two hours from everywhere. The bad thing is that it's two hours from anywhere.

    I grew up in Fair Oaks and have family in Carmichael, so I do visit often. I ended up moving to San Francisco to get away from the heat! Actually, I was in Sacramento on Sunday.
