Is it really?Never rains?Or it pours?
I'm come from southern China.So I don't know.
It rains about 35 to 45 days per year, on average, in most parts of coastal Southern California. Most of that rain falls between November and March.

I miss summer rains, cool & crisp falls, the first frost & snow. The avg rainfall here is maybe 15". I just miss the 4 seasons. I didnt use my cooler till mid july this yr. Thats quite rare & i bet it wont happen again for a very long time.

Ca weather is boring & predictable. Our falls are in the 80s but i prefer the 60s. So.ca averages over 300 days of sunshine annually. BORING!!

You live up to the stereotype of being a whiny, obnoxious northeasterner who blathers about how it's better back east.

Why don't you take the initiative to move back? Is it just easier to just whine a lot?

You remind me of why I'm glad to be a CA native. I'm not like you.

Its obvious the constant ca sun has fryed your brain. I NEVER said its better back east. Its also obvious you never experienced the 4 seasons & im not from the north east.

For a variety of reasons, Southern California has a unique climate. Not everyone is going to be happy because some people do not like lots of sunshine. Where you live it is hot in summer and relatively warm the rest of the year. Rainfall is quite limited. I've done a little research this year comparing the climate of southern California with the rest of the nation and was surprised that it is even warmer here than Texas and northern Florida during winter but cooler the rest of the year compared to those states. Most people would love to have a climate of near 70F winters and 80's to 90's in summer and mostly low humidity.

Sometimes I think it would be great if we had more rainfall especially in summer but then that would mean humid muggy summers. We can't have everything.

Don't fall into the relative humidity trap when determining comfort levels. The dew point reading is the true measure of air saturation and comfort level.

F'rinstance, not knowing where the hell you are in SW MO, I picked the current readings for Branson for my comparison:

Branson: RH: 48%, DP: 70

Sacto: RH: 76%, DP: 51

On the human perception scale:
DP of 70 74 F = Very humid, quite uncomfortable
DP of 50 54 F = Very comfortable

So your 40-something RH reading is useless in the face of your sticky, uncomfortable Mizzouri Ozark dew point.

Thank you, thank you. I appreciate the applause. You're all too kind.
