Fall in California

Fall is our most elusive season in my opinion in Southern California. It's still well over 100 degrees in October, and its not unusual for it to be in the 90's on Thanksgiving Day. Some years are wet, but mostly its dry and hot until--snap! there's a day where it suddenly feels crisp and clear, feels like fall,  and the few trees that change color here--birch, liquid ambar and ginkoes --are vibrant against blue skies. It can last one day or a month. A few cooler nights later it's Winter. By Christmastime, we are often feeling like Spring is just around the corner.

We've been lucky this November...its been "cold" (not reaching above 65 during the day) and we've had a few rainstorms (leaving snow up in the mountains ringing Los Angeles basin) so the sky is clear as a bell and you can see forever. Its been breezy too..sending the leaves blowing all around. Very Autumny---

This weekend we took a drive up north towards Santa Barbara and saw some beautiful autumnal views at Bridlewood Winery near Los Olivos... enjoy!

Make it a Great Day!
