Why Californians dress in layers. Sweater, shawl, cowl, hat, you name it, and if it can squish into your purse halfway through the day all the better.

29F at 7:30 am. (Good thing I set that tap to a slow drip last night.)

49F at 9:30 am.

69F at 12:30 pm.

73F at 3:30pm.

41F at 10:00 pm and going down fast and I’m really glad my bison wool socks order just came. Ignore the lows in the forecast: to cut governmental costs they got rid of the national weather tower for the Bay Area and rely on the one down in Monterey, with our mountains blocking its radar view. The predicted low was off by 15 last night.

This is weather (most of the day, anyway) that is having me mentally designing the warm aran sweater of my dreams. Dress length. At least.

It’s only that noon to four that stops me.

Wear that aran sweater over a tank top and you’ll be set! It’s a weather rollercoaster.

By the end of next week, our temps should be back up in the 59;s, after record lows of -11 this week.

Oh, that seesaw used to drive me crazy in Massachusetts! Especially when they said the high would be 60, and it turned out to mean that it would be 60 for ten minutes, in the sun, midafternoon. Doesn’t count!

kind of like what those of us who have to go back and forth from the East Bay to SF deal with on a daily basis. Even more fun for those in Walnut Creek and other points further east!

I suppose you could start with a full length sweater in the morning, unravel it until late afternoon, then start knitting it again.
