I could be talking about my hair, but I’m not….’cause I can dye that…. I’m talking about the weather. We get this nasty thing nearly every year called an "inversion" which is where the warm air up high holds down cold air below, and it’s like this foggy, wet, still, boringness of gray. It’s a kind of cold that seeps into your bones and you just can’t warm up, not to mention it can be rather depressing to go for ages without seeing the sun. Now, I’ve lived in Seattle, and I swear that is not as bad! At least that gray is rain clouds, that shift and move, and besides, down on the ground you still have greenery and flowers. Here, everything is dormant, so the grass is gray, the trees are gray, and the sky a flat dull gray…. it’s yukky. Some days, it is so foggy that you can’t see more than a few feet and everything is dripping wet; other days, like today, the fog lifts a bit, like right at the top of the foothills, so it’s still gray but at least it’s easier driving. The temperature is in the high 20’s. I know, it could be worse! But I think I’d like to be in California right now for the heat wave!
