I am still getting used to the fact that I live in Southern California. Our “winter” is nearly over, and it was considered a dousy because of the tremendous rain we have received in the past two months (almost the entire year’s rainfall in that time). And while I know my friends in the four season climates are probably tired of me moaning about the sunshine and heat (as they brace for another couple of feet of snow) I still feel a little like Alice in Wonderland when I’m finding local oysters, mussels and clams at the Farmers’ Market alongside winter squash, zucchini blossoms and baby purple eggplant. Incredible!
Do you understand my climatic confusion?
