January: Back-to-work. Wet. Cold. Snow. Dark Nights. Skint post-Xmas-hangover.
I’m used to January being pretty darn grim so imagine my surprise to find January in San Francisco refreshingly different!
For the last two weekends I’ve been basking in 18-20C temperatures, eating al fresco lunches under blue skies, picnicking in the park, cycling around the bay in t-shirts and even hanging out at the beach in shorts… It does not feel like the January I know.
Apparently this isn’t normal. It’s supposed to be cold and wet here too. However, this not normal weather has been the norm for months now… Winter just seems to have forgotten to come just yet… I’ll raise a glass to that (from my outdoor hot-tub under sunny blue skies!)
