May Gray and June Gloom

In San Diego the months of May and June are often chilly and overcast. This is the time when the desert to our east is heating up the air - that air meets the always-cold water. The cold water helps keep our weather mild, but when it meets that warm air, we get what is called the "marine layer", a thick layer of clouds. We call it "May Gray" or "June Gloom." We look forward to days like today, where the sun comes out in the afternoon. I liked the way the sunset reflected in the car today.
