The weather in California has been very pleasant and I am really enjoying the sunshine. This summer seems to be hotter than last year, and there are more heat waves across the country. Thankfully Orange County has been able to avoid serious heat waves and rolling black outs. Having such a strong summer season gets me excited for a cold winter. I enjoy seeing all the changes in the seasons, from rain and clouds to sunshine and clear skies. One thing I can live without and cannot tolerate, is the wind. Personally, when the Santa Ana winds are at their strongest, they're too much too handle! All in all, I am enjoying this summer as much as I can (there is always work to be done), but was able to visit Lake Tahoe for a few weeks with my family.
