Judging local weather Wed, Jul 28, 2010
When I travel to a new locale, I tend to forever judge it by the weather I experience while there.  I visited my sister in San Francisco one summer, and it was cold and rainy.  Since then I've always assumed the myths about the wonderful weather of northern California to be completely false.  Another summer I visited a different sister in Seattle, and it happened to be during a week of warm, dry, perfect weather.  As much as I know I'm wrong, I assume the Pacific northwest to be sunny and dry in the summer.  I just got back from a trip to west Texas and New Mexico, where it was cool and rainy.  Apparently, deserts aren't that dry, and now I'm doomed to think that forever, or until I visit again, which won't be soon because if I wanted cold rain, I wouldn't leave New Jersey. #science
