If the California Tourism Board sees this they’ll probably shut down my blog, but it’s true that it’s not always sunny in California. We’ve had several days of mostly overcast weather. Usually, when we get morning fog it burns off by the end of my ride, but lately, the fog has pretty much lingered all day. The photos below were taken late morning towards the end of a two-hour ride.
No complaints, though, after the heat of summer, the temperatures have been nice and cool. Morgan Hill actually averages about 275 days of sunshine a year, or about 3 out of 4 days, which is not too bad. I remember when we lived in Boulder, Colorado they bragged they had 300 days of sunshine a year. We became a little dubious of that claim after 3 years there. Some days, especially in the fall when a condition called “upslope” happened, it could be gloomy all day with the sun just weakly peaking through. We suspected those days were counted towards the 300. Even so, there was mostly plenty of sunshine.
