Today a local meteorologist was saying LA is in for high winds and high temps later this week, which will interrupt our "typical fall weather", and to be blunt, that's ignorant. High winds and heat are typical fall weather in Southern California. That's exactly what happens here in September and October and, lately, into November. It's that same lack of awareness that lets people say with a straight face that LA has no seasons, which is only true when you've decided not to pay attention.
End of crankiness. (For now.)
Meanwhile there's Point Dume, along with today's marine layer making a slow retreat.
