In Sacramento CA, we have 2 seasons... Summer (hot, dry, bake you in an oven summer) and Fall... Sometimes a week or 2 of Spring before the heat happens. Fall is the most drastic season we get, mind you 30 min. away to the east is the mountains and they get full blown winter. We get rain, and damp blustery mornings... perfect for sippin coffee and listen to your favorite morning show in traffic.
