In recent news Southern California has become famous for its historic drought; however, I feel like we have had more cloudy days in the last month than we have had in the last three years. Growing up in the state known for its beautiful beaches and perfect weather, rain clouds have always been rare oddities that send teenage girls in to full on scarf weather and Starbucks takes a beating with hot drinks.
I, however, love cloudy days because it means I can turn the oven on without turning the apartment into an inferno! John left this morning for school and I have the day off, so when I looked out the window and saw those dark clouds looming in the distant, I knew that only meant one thing, I can bake something and not want to take an ice bath after just to escape the heat!
