Southern California Summer 2016 is here


It is official.  SoCal Summer is here.  We started yesterday with 96 Degree High, and 103 Degrees today, with the lows around 66.

I love SoCal because of how warm it is year round, but in the summer months, I wish it would be more temperate.  If this year is to be anything like the last several year, We will have roughly 3 to 4 months of no or very little rain and with temperatures 85+ degrees.  Prime beach and pool weather, but also prime forest fire weather, and for what ever reason, the smog is worse in the summer.

That being said, Corey and I have two vacations planned for this summer.  The first is coming up in a couple weeks, and we will be in Myrtle Beach, at his family’s beach house.  We went last year and had a really great time so I am looking forward to doing it again.  This year we have the added bonus of his aunt, uncle and cousins coming out as well.  I am really looking forward to that warm ocean water.  (For those that don’t know, Pacific Ocean is cold even in the summer.  It is also gross. It is always gross.)

Our second trip is going to be in July, heading to Los Vegas.  This is some thing Corey and I have been talking about doing for the 3 years that we have been together, but due to his school and work and my work schedules it never made sense to go.  What started as a plan to see my sister and her wife, has morphed into a “just get away” week in Vegas.  Not too sure what we will be doing, but I am sure it will be fun, and I think we will be meeting up with one of my friends from

I almost didn’t get this up in time, but I made myself stop what I was doing, and post this article, because I don’t want to fail my challenge, especially this early into the month.
