Observations and occasional comments about San Diego county weather - nature - and the world around us.

Our string of below normal summer days days continue, very foggy this AM. One of my favorite things is early morning in the backyard back by the hummingbird feeders. The back left corner is feeding central and it is buzzing with activity. I am not sure how many birds it takes to drink 2 gallons a day but it is a big crowd!
There is a waiting line for these feeders.
Seems like every day our coast (Oceanside specifically) has set record low high temps because of the cool ocean surface temps.
I have to agree with calpoppy regarding this summer, nice change from the usual heat, wish we had received some summer rain down here though.
PSP, I think we may pay for our nice La Nina summer with a drier than normal winter - I hope not! September looks to be cool this year, October is the big worry. I have seen a report or two predicting a worse than usual Santa Ana season with hot dry east winds - potentially bad for fires. Hope not again! There was a front page article this morning concerned that Lake Mead (at Las Vegas) power generation would shut down in 3 years if the lake continues to lower at the existing rate. It is supposedly at a 50 year low.
