Why be the bearer of bad news-I need to vent! Just crazy monotonous days 73F~ every single day,fog breaks like clockwork to full sun at 10:30 am-set your clock to it too!

Not very bad as its sunny..not windy..and warm in the sun..but not summer like. The last warm spell was early June? I think Hayward must be getting close to a record of most summer days in a row without hitting 80f. If we didnt already.

Ditto down here in SoCal. We are 10 degr. below normal both at coast and inland. Setting 'low' temp records for July/August.

Here in socal, abc7 in LA said this could be the coolest August on record if things continue.
I am enjoying the 80-95 instead of 100+. Almost everyday though its been breezy and thats not good cuz of drying out for fires.
Just recently one day (July I think) the beaches set a record for their lowest high at 69 degrees since weather records been tracked.
But I can understand it being cool at the beach...

Yes, and I love it!

My DH hates it, but he doesn't get hot flashes, LOL. Wonderful to have fewer wildfires in the state, too. So much better for the air quality.

Save's water-I'm amazed at how much less water I'm using at 72f than 82f.

I suspect that some of my plants still think it's winter. My Xmas cactus is blooming, for one.

It's been the nicest summer I can remember. I have been transplanting in July!

While my tomatoes are suffering, my pole beans, cucumbers and zucchini are producing like crazy. I figured when life gives us lemons, we make lemonade, so I'm pulling up the disastrous sweet peppers and starting peas and broccoli. (Will probably induce a giant heat wave, heh).

I have to admit, I'm enjoying the savings on water as well. I'm only watering my veggies about once a week here in Sonoma County. And since my hobby is concrete garden art, these temps are just right.

yes, love this weather (especially hubby - he's from georgia!) but my poor tomatoes! i've yet to eat just one!!

well, at least this weather is making my broccoli, which i thought was done, produce like crazy (i think), and the one little romaine lettuce plant i left as an experiment, is going like gangbusters. oh, and so is my cabbage.

here it is 1:44pm and the sun has JUST come out!

well, if this continues, i'll probably start my winter seedlings!
