Oh snap!

Over the last several days, we’ve experienced a Spring cold snap. The sun was out, but the high’s hovered in the low/mid 60s, while the lows dipped into the 30s and 40s. A warm day for say, Bemidji, Minnesota, but chilly for the sunny Central Valley. It been about 10 degrees lower than what’s normal for this time of year.

Sunny, cloudless, deep blue skies made the weather all that more deceptive. It looked like it should be a warm and inviting day. Two college students decided to take in some sun at Knoles Field on the University of the Pacific campus. A stiff breeze whipped around and what started out as an afternoon sunbathing turned into a struggle to stay warm for Emily Veeh of Los Angeles and Anna Bernard of Stockton. Veeh and Bernard spread out a blanket on which to lay on while sunning themselves. Soon they were using it to huddle under to keep warm.

Not too long from now, Summer will arrive and with it the season’s unrelenting heat. It’ll be then when we’ll be wanting weather like we’ve been having lately.
