The local climate has hit mid June. What the hell is up with that? They keep saying it's going to get colder again, but the day this miraculous reversal is supposed to come about keeps getting further and further away. Along the same line of pondering, the rest of the world may get fall colors, but in the spring out here the california oaks turn bright yellow! Ok, so it's because they're covered in little chains of stamen clusters... but that just means we get yellow snow out here. Erm... Hmm...... Anyway.... the pollen covering on the sidewalks is thick enough right now that I can make out footprints in it.
