Oh, Santa Barbara.
I’m heading home this weekend to attend the wedding of a dear old friend. Since I left Santa Barbara over a decade ago for a number of cold, snowy climates, I have received weekly calls from my parents throughout the winter months, usually from the beach, just letting me know that it’s sunny and 75. Every day of the year. So I was pretty excited to head back and run outside on non-ice covered streets, swim outdoors, and maybe, possibly, even lay out and give myself a pre-spring sunburn (you have to build up a base.)
Santa Barbara weather forecast for the weekend of February 26, 2011:
Cloudy with rain. High in the low 50s, lows in the low 30s. Chance of snow.
CHANCE. OF. SNOW. For the first time since like 1948.
