Welcome once again to Tuesday 4 begun by Toni Taddeo and kept alive in her memory. Let's discuss the weather...
1. Spring is here. What do you like or dislike about it weather wise?
Well living in Southern California is definitely different than living in a state that's been dealing with Winter snow. What we get in the Winter is rain or Santa Ana winds. This year was very windy for months on end. I look forward to that stopping.
What happens in Spring is we start to get something they call May Gray or June Gloom where we don't see the sun until the afternoon. I like seeing sunshine each day.
However we have had a few days in the 80's already. I look forward to planting a garden. We have flowers throughout the year.
Something that surprised us is that our one strawberry plant from last year continued to grow throughout Winter. It has taken over the whole planter box.
2. How do you fare in humidity? Do you fade or come alive?
I don't care for humidity. I grew up with it in Illinois for 38 years and it's just a part of life. We do not have humidity here unless we get closer to 100 degrees. So I am just fine without it!
3. Do rainy days bother you or are you happy for an occasional break from the sunshine?
First of all I don't mind a rainy day as a rule because we always welcome rain here. What I don't like about the rain is that it never fails to happen on a day when I have to go somewhere and my car is clean in the garage.
4. In your opinion, what is the best thing about each season?
