That's pretty much "freak" weather for the Bay area though, right?

Scrod hasn't been through a Santa Ana yet. Have you even got to "June Gloom" yet?

edit: not that I disagree, though.

Santa Anas suck balls

I had instant cotton mouth and tasted blood at a couple occasions during TNR last night

Ah yeah. The Fleche was miserable during the day because of the blistering heat and near constant strong winds.

You all need to quit your crying. Come deal with the Northeast winter & the lovely smell of hot garbage during the swampy summers in NYC. I get 2 seasons a year here, fall & late spring.
I'm going to be looking for jobs in Southern California soon, F this weather.


Today I went to see
Clear Plastic Masks
and
Fly Golden Eagle

I was blown away at how amazing they both sound live. I'm going to see them again in BK on Friday. (the music scene is the one thing I will miss about NYC).

Lol at californians moaning about bad weather.

In Virginia we got 2 feet of snow at once this year, and a lot of other snow storms.
And we've had 6 or so 90 degree days already. And the humidity makes it feel like we're living in the devils taint.\

Enjoy your weather.

Dude, I spent two miserable years in the arid wasteland that is Phoenix, AZ. I can handle the Santa Ana winds.

I have no doubt. The truth is I was fine with the temperature, the only thing that bugged me about Santa Anas is that I'd get a headache. every. ****ing. time.

Yes, especially when there is a Santa Ana but also the barometric change is dramatic enough to feel it in your sinuses.

I know right? I'm sure every County and area in California has the same exact weather; that's something I should totally know. Good talk.

Today I walked into my apartment and a ceiling fan fell right on my head. Luckily I had just been riding and still had my helmet on! SEE KIDS? Helmets save lives!

Alright, off to sue the landlord!
