In So. California, summer is HOT, dry, HOT, and well, HOT. Santa Ana winds make your mind a bit wonky and entire mountain ranges burst into flame.
In Lorraine, summer is a bit different. It can be hot, then overcast, then sultry, then blustery, then rainy, then hot - all in the same day.
Don't like the weather? Blink your eyes.
It's tough deciding what to wear when I leave the apartment. Sandals and a parka? Sleeveless and an umbrella?
