As an unabashed native Californian, I also readily admit that I'm unused to the idea of autumn (and winter) being miserable, windy, nasty seasons marked by viciously low temperatures and lethal precipitation ;)

I like 'em the way we've got 'em. I may never be able to leave!

I've been getting glares from those "back east" as well as we enjoy the beautiful 70 and 80 degree temperatures here in the desert. I brag a lot this time of year, but since I can only brag about the weather about 6 months of the year, I try to take full advantage. And yes, Enjelani, I agree, Autumn is gorgeous. Perhaps we love it so much because it is the season of our birth?

weather report on NPR at 3:45am, while driving back from mt. tam this morning: sunny and warm, the next two days. :)

oh, yes. i was marvelling at the reds and yellows down in cupertino today. we get so little COLOR during this time of year.

it was neat to see a hint of green in the stanford foothills, after just one big storm.
