It’s here…yuck! May-Gray to be followed by June-Gloom. There is actually a definition in Wikipedia for May-Gray & June-Gloom…I’m shocked! And it’s right on the money – “June Gloom (also May Gray) is a California term for a weather pattern that results in overcast skies with mild temperatures during the late spring and early summer….” It also mentions that it may lead to “Seasonal Affective Disorder” – depression basically.
Here in the Hollywood Riviera and any other South Bay area with views, it is a horrible time to put a “VIEW” home on the market. You can’t see a thing right now – on a clear day it feels like you could reach out and touch the Santa Monica Mountains and during May-Gray – forget that there are even mountains there. One may even call you a liar if you told them there were mountains and/or an ocean out there in the pea-soup!
I sure hope it clears up for 4th of July this year. The fireworks at Torrance Beach are gorgeous when you can see them!! Let’s hope all hope for clear weather soon! Here’s what it looks like on a clear day at the sunset hour!
