California Weather

I grew up in Massachusetts, where the weather is unpredictable and changes regularly. I recall one March several years ago where one day I was walking around in shorts and two days later we had a huge snowfall. I’ve been conditioned to expect that sort of weather.

Now I live in California, where the weather is almost always the same from day to day. It does change across the seasons: it is somewhat rainy in the winter, and it never rains in the summer. But on average each day is just like the next one.

This puts me increasingly on edge all summer long. I keep subconsciously waiting for something to change. When nothing does, I feel like my brain is flattening out, like listening to muzak all the time.

I don’t know why more people don’t mention this as a drawback of California.
