I find it odd when people who live in round the year warm climate weather find it boring and wish for winter weather of below freezing temperatures with ice/sleet/snowstorms, etc. Having lived in both types of climates (with and without extreme weather changes), I prefer the all year round stable warm weather although I do understand that this causes water storage problems (which to me is the only real drawback).

To OP... well... the weather here may not be perfect... but the fact that it doesn't interfere with life is huge, compared to somewhere in the snowbelt.

For example, having to get up and shovel snow on some random basis sux! LOL!

At the other extreme... evaporating on the walk from your workplace to you car and burning your hands on the handle of the car... also sux, as do dust storms, if you're familiar with AZ.

Or perhaps hurricanes... as yet another crazy climate I've experienced...

So while the weather here may be boring, it's non-intrusive. Worth a lot to me, since working burns a lot of my time... having a near 100% certaintly that the remaining time is not infringed on... is priceless.

Santa Ana winds are rare along the coast, but they are sure a deal-breaker if you're in the Inland Empire. 80 mile per hour gusts and single-digit humidity make it horrible for your skin and sinuses, not to mention kick up nasty wildfires. I'll take the muggy Louisiana summer days over Santa Anas anytime!

We want that weather for a few days. I wouldn’t mind a little cooler weather but ice storms and freezing my azz off for 4 months isn’t fun

People think warm rain is all sticky and oppressive but actually, it provides relief on a hot day. Over on the Gulf Coast you have 97 degree days that suddenly drop 15-20 degrees when a thunderstorm sweeps in, bringing plenty of cloud cover and wind. Actually very refreshing, and far better than the triple digit heat that San Bernardino, Bakersfield, and Fresno get, without any hope of rain, not even a cloud in the sky or a flicker of wind (if there was wind the smog wouldn't be so horrific).

I don't miss the 90 degree Santa Ana driven days near Thanksgiving at all that's for sure!
