weather.jpgFriday: This weekend seems to be a continuation of the rather cloudy week we’ve been having. The sky is another quilt of patchy fog this morning, but the afternoon slightly clears. Downtown the sun battles out the clouds to hit almost 70 degrees. By the coast, the sun is having a harder time breaking free and will barely reach the mid 60s. Then, nightfall calls for the all too familiar fog blanket to cover the entire city.

Saturday: The sun and clouds have a similar chemistry like the previous day. And of course, the wind continues to huff and puff. I know even the big bad wolf gets tired, but San Francisco wind just doesn’t. Gusts could get as high as 22 mph today. Those attempting to have gravity-defying hair could use few more sprits of that hair spray. (Fyi: my mini mohawk completely blew over yesterday)

Sunday: We’ve had enough of this patchy fog business, but alas the sun today is patchy, too. It will reach around low 70s inland and low 60s by the coast. A cloudy morning and night will bookend the day. And hooray, the wind is mild!

    I take exception to the negative intonations of this writer regarding the San Francisco weather.

    Weather just is.

    There is no good, or bad weather.

    I welcome the fog and cold. I welcome that fog getting cleaved like pasta through our nimble Golden Gate cables. From the Outer Sunset to Dog Patch, it’s weather, “whether you like it or not”.

    Weather is you. You’re water, you’re sunshine. You are San Franciscan. Move with the weather and you’re good. Fight it and you might as well cram yourself back in the womb and start all over again. It’s wet in there too. Cold is simply about growth. Don’t want to grow? Move to LA.

    Oh no, don’t get me wrong, Hank! I love the fog and cold. That’s why I’ve lived in San Francisco for 20 years, and in the Sunset district, too (the foggiest and coldest of it all!) I didn’t intend the weather to come off sounding negative. Poor job on my part if it did. I was merely trying to give the weather some emotion. After all if someone’s reading about weather, might as well try to make it a story. And every story needs a little drama.

    Then again, it’s also July and Summer and the time to be frolicking outside. When you’re cooped up in a cubicle most of the week like me, sometimes it’d be nice to have more than an hour of sporadic sunlight on the weekends.

    But after living in Boston for a bit, I’d take my seasonless, cold, wet, foggy, windy (okay maybe not that windy) SF weather any day! Good to know you’re a fellow fog lover. The “all too familiar fog blanket” is one that can’t seem to sleep without.

    I take exception to the causeless criticism of the writer’s description of the weather. It is almost entirely neutral, with even some benign, quirky delineations along the way. The big bad wolf allusion was great! As was the line on how the wind may play around with hairstyles!
    Perhaps, if we dig through this article thoroughly, we may find some instance of negativity worth complaining about. Oh, there it is! The author took exception to the immoderate amount of fog we’ve been having. How dare she! Doesn’t she know that fog is growth? Does she not want to grow?! She should move to LA.

    Because of the last comment, I’m leaving for LA this afternoon.

    Weee!
