Having made my own rather chilly trip to the coast yesterday, I was delighted to see the photo above on the front page of this morning's San Francisco Chronicle; the image is titled "Ana Umali, 11, finds a way to stay warm on Ocean Beach. Temperatures in San Francisco have been about 2 degrees below normal, but have been as much as 10 degrees below normal in the Santa Clara Valley."
The headline is "Bay Area's chilly summer not its coldest" and the article begins with "This has been the summer of our discontent. Not only has the economy been lousy, but the summer fog has also hung around day and night, like a houseguest that won't leave." Well, it's foggy again this morning and this houseguest is on his way southward.
