from California

mid 60's

rumor has it, low 70's by Thursday

So, I'll admit, there was a bit of rain going on at the end of last week, and then there was fog, but all of that has blown through and lifted and it's blue skies and clear sailing for beach buffs and painters alike.  I'd say, definitely a mood enhancer. Now if I can just get my painting sea legs back, all will be well

January 23 CLOUDY

January 26  FOG
