I moved here about a year ago. I was pretty dissapointed with the weather last year, and thought Jan and Feb this year was better than the entire summer last year.

Hopefully, these clouds will clear up and we can enjoy some sunny/80's in July - Sept.

I want warmer temps!! But seriously people, you have NO idea what gloomy conditions are, except Miss Pip who's from London. I grew up in the northeastern corner of PA -- Scranton, PA (the location of the show "The Office") and believe me, it doesn't get much gloomier than Scranton. Winters there are long and BRUTAL. Short daylight hours and totally gloomy skies for weeks on end. You can count how many days you see the sun on 1 hand. It's the reason why some of my family members suffer a vitamin D deficiency. Oh, and it's not just in the winter. There are a lot of cloudy days in the spring, summer, and fall. It also rains all summer long. So please, until you've experienced conditions that can put a lot of people on the verge of depression, you have no reason to complain about the weather here.

Scranton and Northeastern PA -- 52 to 70 clear sunny days/year
Los Angeles area-- 147 to 186 clear sunny days/year

I agree with westcoast30, weather where I currently live (Cleveland, Ohio) is near depressing half of the year. It almost rained throughout April/May of this year. Just a few weeks ago the clouds finally cleared up... but even in the Summer we'll get days of rain, or severe thunderstorms.

It's either too cold, or too hot, their isnt much of an in between except in the fall when it's in the 40's. Then by winter it'll be anywhere from 0-30 degrees, then once Spring approaches there will be some 60 degree days then BOOM 80s, humid and hot until October again. It's a freaking weather rollercoaster. I literally get depressed here every Winter. Looking forward to my move to LA...all I HEAR about LA is the gorgeous year round weather.

Believe me you guys, LA weather is NOTHING to complain about.
