July Gloom

We drove inland this morning for errands and work stuff.  We drove 30 miles from the beach, due East.  It was 97 degrees!  97' F.

At approximately 13:00, we drove back to the ocean front.  It was a gloomy 62' F!  Over a 30 degree difference!  JULY GLOOM!  Arrrgh!  Socked in.

If there is one thing that we've had to make peace with it is this.  Living by the beach means living through May Gray, or June Gloom, or July, or whatever.  I've written about this in past posts with respect to the Vitamin D deficiency and lack of sunlight.  It is no joke, but I think I've made my peace with it.  I think. . . .

I think everybody should get rich and famous and do everything they ever dreamed of so they can see that it's not the answer. ~Jim Carrey
