If you live in San Diego, it's inevitable that you'll end up entertaining an out-of-town guest or two because, well, you live in San Diego! These guests occasionally need a few things explained to them, though, so this primer is here to help you out.
1. The weather is almost always perfect...
The normal order of things here is sunny, not too hot, not too cold -- they're the kind of days other cities hope to get a few times a year. Thus, we turn into a bunch of spoiled, rotten whiners anytime it's anything less than flawless. It's not our fault. Nature has forced us to develop high standards.
2. ... except for May and June-ish
So you thought May/June would be the perfect time for trip to sunny San Diego? Apparently no one told you that May Gray and June Gloom aren’t just melodiously rhyming catch phrases. You might as well put that beach chair away -- that marine layer isn’t going anywhere.
3. A little rain might as well be the end of the world
Cancel your plans, call in sick to work, and don’t even attempt to drive anywhere, especially the freeway. At the first sign of a drizzle, the streets are suddenly transformed into a demolition derby where all common sense and traffic laws go right out the window. It’s safer to ride out the storm indoors.
