From time to time I’ve noted, with some interest, the microclimates that abound here in the Bay Area. Yesterday I had an unusual experience, even by Bay Area standards, with how very different these micro climates can be!
Just before dinner at my favorite pizza place—Mulberry Street Pizza, in San Rafael, we took a walk in the nearby marshlands (McInnis County Park). The temperature was a very warm (no, hot!), sunny, 84°. After eating too much pizza at dinner we drove to Fort Baker and walked along the breakwater by the Golden Gate. Completely different weather!
That’s a 29° drop in temperature in under 14 miles!
Even Angel Island was being overcome by the rapidly mutating bank of fog. The fog horns were all blasting and continue to blast even as I write this.
I love the Bay Area weather!
