june gloom


summer in los angeles has arrived!  i must say, i had pretty high hopes for these summer days after all the talk that has occurred among fellow angelenos.  however, there is a summer phenomenon that occurs in the month of june and is woefully referred to as “june gloom.”  gloom it is, my friends.  the sun does not shine, the weather does not reach 75, and a humid drizzle is common.  i’m over it.
