Sure it's hot, but it's not anywhere near Sacramento hot. I'd speculate that Lamorinda is generally between Oakland and Concord temps. I lived in Sacramento for a few years and it's NOTHING like that. Lamorinda tends to get the morning and evening coolness, whereas Concord or even out in Pleasanton, the heat will remain into the late evening. I've only had a few icky hot days since living here...(and we don't even have an air conditioned house--fans are fine)

Wait, I assume you have no A/C in Lamorinda, right? Not Concord? I grew up in WC and EVERYONE had A/C along the 680 corridor or you would be seriously miserable. I could see getting away without it in Lamorinda, especially if you get some shade and a nice cross breeze.

Correct- we don't have AC (nor do any of my neighbors) here in Lamorinda. We just use fans to take the edge off during heat waves. I'm positive that you'd need AC in Concord/WC.

If you want more of an urban, but still in a neighborhood style living, then go with Albany, Alameda, El Cerrito, Berkeley, Piedmont, and parts of Oakland. If you want suburbia, then trek through the Caldecot tunnel to places like Walnut Creek, Pleasanton, Moraga, Orinda, etc.

You can find good public schools in all of those areas (with the possible exception of high school in Oakland). Its really depends on the type of environment you are looking for.

Emeryville is not very kid or family friendly from what I have seen. Its more designed for young singles in their 20s and early 30s with no kids who like living in loft-style new construction apartments. That said, living there wouldn't be horrible for you, as you'd still be close to Oakland, Berkeley, Alameda, Albany, etc.

Moraga's summer climate falls in between Berkeley/Oakland and Walnut Creek. If its 65 in Oakland, its usually 70 in Moraga, 72 - 75 in Lafayette, 80 in Walnut Creek & 85 in Concord. The farther east from the Bay, the hotter the temperature.
