Mark Twain Was Right About San Francisco

I’d always heard how cold and foggy San Francisco was, but since I moved here in March, we’ve had pretty good weather. Almost too good, as our SOMA loft catches the morning sun for several hours. For a few months there, it got pretty tropical every morning with the sunshine streaming in the floor-to-ceiling windows.
Until July, when all of a sudden it has been foggy nearly every morning and evening. The fog fades out for a while during the middle of the day, but then it fills back in during the late afternoons.
So although we had glorious sunshiny days in the spring, during which I thought we were so smart moving to the sunnier side of the city, lately I keep thinking about one of my favorite quotes about San Francisco, from Mark Twain:
He was so right.
