Gloomiest Gloom Ever?

Semi-good article in the Independent about our summer of fog. Park did a nice job of using stats to show this hasn't been normal; the NWS person was useless. I went to the farmer's market yesterday and tomatoes were ok, certainly not great. The season is about a month behind. Though I wonder if Roots is doing better, being in the Santa Ynez Valley and all. Must ask the Lerner. Dar-tritus chimes in that he's had solar panels for 6 years, and for the first time the meter isn't spinning backwards this summer. Most importantly, S Bee has spent a ton of time on SCI this summer cause of all of the fog, good for her research, less fun relationship-wise.
It's been sunnier in SB the last few days, for example this image from this afternoon, but you can also see the fog pointing towards Santa Cruz Island (3rd Channel Island, counting from the west). I believe it's pointing right towards S Bee's study sites....
