The weather around here is neat. Such a difference from the places I've lived where there were extreme variation between winters and summers. For example, Grand Junction, Colorado, will see 110F degrees in the summer and -10F in the winter.

My first visit to SF in years: last summer I flew out from Grand Junction, where it was in the 100s. I stayed at a hotel for a few days on Union Square. It was in the 50s in the morning with fog and clouds, and then in the 60s with sun in the afternoon. I thought it was pretty nifty. And then later I stumbled upon Mark Twains' quote: "The coldest winter I ever spent was summer in San Francisco."

The majoriy of voters in Santa Barbara and Monterey counties voted for Jerry Brown. San Luis Obispo County was very close, but we werent all blue. The coastal parts of San Luis Obispo County, and some areas like Nipomo, Arroyo Grande, and Templeton are now very liberal. Ventura County wasnt all for Brown either.

What makes each desirable?

Thanks
San Rafael - beautiful weather; nice downtown

Santa Clara - warmer weather if you prefer that; great Indian and Korean food options

Sunnyvale - warmer weather; great Indian food

Concord - hotter weather; decent downtown

Hayward - cheaper by Bay Area standards; good Mexican food; nice central Bay Area location

Newark - calm/quiet for the most part; decent food options for the immediate area; decent middle class town

Antioch - Uhh, sorry Antioch no offense but I got nothin

San Leandro - close to Oakland yet relatively safe from the crime that exists in the part of Oakland it borders; some outlets/places to shop at; great weather

Daly City - almost never gets too hot; no smog; very convenient to SF and has most everything you would need within its city limits; affordable for the most part - it may be foggy there a lot and a very blue collar town, but it is the most heavily and densely populated city in San Mateo County for a reason

San Mateo - excellent weather; very convenient/centrally located to the rest of the Bay Area, particularly SF and other very nice Peninsula cities; lots of great food options; nice downtown
