Day 12: My favorite season

California's Real Seasons

Let's be real.  California doesn't have a winter, spring, summer and fall.  We've got fire season, flood season, draught season, and earthquake season. 

You think I'm joking. 

I'm not. 

People who live here will tell you that our seasons seem to be getting a lot worse lately.  Earthquake season is lasting a lot longer.  Flood season is affecting a lot more of the area. 

Right now we're in a bit of earthquake season, but we appear to be sliding into fire season.  Just this week, random lightning strikes lit a few hill sides in Riverside on fire.  After the fire season will be the drought season.  This will, of course, lead us into flood season.  During flood season we'll take on so much water that we'll have mud slides throughout the area.

Side note: Stupid people build their houses on the sides of hills in Malibu, then they cry when the house slides into the ocean after it rains a lot.  Californians aren't the brightest crayons in the box. 

So as far as seasons go, I don't have a favorite.  Often times though, somewhere in March or April, the weather is warm enough for dresses or shorts and cool enough to do your hair and make up.  There will usually be flowers and a breeze, sometimes it's a beach day or you might even be able to head up to the mountains for some last minute snow boarding.  That's my favorite time of the year.  Equilibrium.
