Weather may have been boring, but at least tonight's sunset was not boring.  

Beautiful clear day today, went for a pleasant walk.

March is currently running about four full degrees cooler than normal here, although the next few days' warming will narrow that somewhat.

I had to travel to a place near El Centro in the Imperial Valley yesterday, it was quite warm out there. Very windy as offshore flow kicked in, temps in the low 80s.

89F here today, warmest temperature of the year so far. Might have to turn on my AC for an hour this evening to keep my room cool for the first time since October.

Hills are nice and green from the rain we got earlier, but they probably won't stay that way too long. Still reached the 80s today.

Traveling around SoCal lately it's interesting to see which areas greened and which ones didn't - it seems areas around San Diego County, parts of Orange County, and parts of southwestern Riverside County managed to get some green in the hills recently but my area, and pretty much everywhere to the north and east of here, are still golden brown and never turned green at all this winter/spring.

It was briefly completely overcast here this afternoon, for a couple of hours. High clouds have since disappeared almost entirely.
