Out here 75 or so miles east of L.A., it's not sunny today! It's overcast and 60F. However, yesterday it was 91F and gorgeously clear.

The thing about California's climate is that it depends on where you are. In summer here locally, I can go from 120 degrees in the desert to 80 degrees in the mountains in a half an hour. And Death Valley might be close to 130 degrees at the same time that in Eureka way up north, it's 55 degrees and foggy, and in Redding 80 air miles to the east of Eureka it's 115. Having lived in many different parts of my native state, I can say that there are as many different climates as there topographies. And there are lots of topographies. Even the desert varies a lot. In winter, the low desert very rarely has any frost, while snow and temperatures well below freezing are common in the high desert.
Where I live now, we have four seasons- warm, hot, warm, and cool.

Oh, and welcome, joebusy!
