Just look at this – the sun! We hates it! We hates it forever.

It’s Late August, So Manhattanhenge is Here on McAllister Street, and Parallels, on Dreaded Sunny DaysWednesday, August 31st, 2016
[UPDATE: If you want updates on Christina, as thousands of you do, apparently, click on over to this Christina Loren page at RICH LIEBERMAN 415 MEDIA to get all the deets – he keeps up with things, to say the least.]
I’ll tell you, the only time I’ve watched NBC the past decade is at a few Super Bowl parties, the ones I can’t/couldn’t host myself because … NBC monopolizes the Super Bowl every three years, like clockwork, and I live in the center of Frisco with only a rabbit ear antenna to catch glimpses of the vast TV wasteland.
Anywho, I don’t know why tens of thousands have visited this tiny WordPress looking for info about Christina “Loren” recently – I suppose they’re just discovering the news of her recent departure from KNTV?
Here’s a snapshot of the Search Engine Terms people use to get to this site in order of popularity, currently. See? Like, “WHAT HAPPENED TO CHRISTINA LOREN” ‘n stuff like that:
Here’s an old post – it’s gotten hundreds of comments over the years, including a few from Christina’s household itself/Christina herself (I can’t narrow it down), if you can believe that, you generally “unkempt” Bay Area women, you “haters” both male and female.
Now I’ll tell you, whatever you say about Christina “Loren,” you can’t say she wouldn’t immediately boost the ratings of any Bay Area Station what hired her, when and if that’s possible…
Leaving you with a thumbnail of the most epic animated gif ever:
Endless Winter, 2015: Surfers at Ocean Beach – The Warmest Summer I Ever Spent was a Winter in San FranciscoTuesday, March 3rd, 2015
It’s been quite warm this winter, huh?
Of course, the water is nevertheless quite cold, so wetsuits are de rigueur, mes amis.
Shocking: The Term “New Market” Has Become Normalized Already – Here’s “NEMA” Right Next to SOMA No Big DealTuesday, November 4th, 2014
I give up, NEMA is here to stay. All it took was one little weather station high (nine stories) above Mid Market:
How should the NEMA people celebrate this climate-related milestone? What would they say?
WEATHER, NOT PLEATHER
FORECASTS, NOT WHORECASTS
CLIMATE SAVVY, NOT SHABBY
You get the idea. (Like similarly, I could almost write one of Frank Chu’s signs after seeing so many over the years.)
Do you know that at least two people moved into the NeMA for less than $2k per month? (No, not the Below Market Rent people-some of those are paying high thtee figs, I’m srsly.) Granted, these were studios on low floors, but still, people pay more than that now for bedbug-infested cribs across the street and a bit to the northeast in the actual Tenderloin.
So Nema tenants, brace, brace, brace – your massive rent increase is coming, soon, FYI.

How Do People Get To This Blog? With Queries Like “christina loren implants nbc” – Notes on the KNTV NBC Weather GirlThursday, February 6th, 2014
[UPDATE, May 2015: Christina is OUT at KNTV, per RICH LIEBERMAN 415 MEDIA – TV, Radio, Internet…dishing dirt since 2001. I’m sure he’ll have all the deets with a quickness.]
I’ll tell you, some days the Internet gets inundated with questions about stereotypical weather girl Christina Loren and some days it does not. I think it mostly* has to do with what outfit she happens to be wearing on that particular day, mostly. This is Monday’s effort:
Is this a job in bay area media? Is Christina “Loren” a journalist? Sort of, I suppose.
I remember seeing this ad three years ago and thinking, gee, this doesn’t seem very Bay Area, how is this going to go?
And it went pretty much like I expected.
Anyway, if you actually care about the weather, Intellicast’s radar can tell you if you’ve got an hour to get to the store and back before it starts raining again, so that’s nice.
*And I think that people all-of-a-sudden care about the weather this week – that’s another factor I’m sure
As seen over the weekend. SFO is to the right

It’s the same fog as seen by photographer David Yu here.
Wow: Check Out This Morning’s Perseid Meteor Shower Photo from Eureka Valley: Meteor, Sutro Tower, FogMonday, August 13th, 2012
From trophygeek, a shot of the icy ether and a chilly Twin Peaks:
“Perseid meteor over Sutro Tower, San Francisco Aug 13, 2012: Set up the camera to take 8 second exposures all night and caught this large meteor as it streaked over San Francisco. The lights near the tower are cars up on Twin Peaks shining their headlights into the fog. I happened to be checking on the camera when it happened so I saw it too!”
Wow, I’m speechless:

Me with nothing to say
You in your Autumn sweater
Alls I know is that tonight, Saturday, August 11, 2012 will be your best chance all year to see a meteor shower.
What I don’t know is what the cloud / fog situation will be like, but you could see a lot of blue sky this AM so that bodes well.
Here’s what it will look like:

Oh wait, here’s the real deal, from Christmas Tree Road, a half-decade back, August 12th, 11:41 PM:
Canon 5D, 15mm 2.8 Fisheye, f/5.6, 5 seconds, ISO 1600
But people, you need to dress warm – gloves, beanies, etc and maybe a sleeping bag if you’re serious.
All right, see you there!
Shooting stars never stop/ even when they reach the top.
San Francisco’s Sunset District Gets Called “Land of Misery” in National Media: “Fog – Thick, Endless, Depressive Clouds”Friday, February 24th, 2012
“If you start at the Bay Bridge and head west along most major streets in San Francisco, you’ll eventually get to a magical land of misery known as the Sunset. The name is a joke, and perhaps even a way to trick tourists: The sun rarely visits the Sunset, not even when it sets. The primary weather element in the Sunset is fog—thick, endless, depressive clouds of it that wash up from the ocean to completely saturate the land. I lived in the Sunset for a single, terrible year. Before I moved there, I used to be one of those snobby city-dwellers who’d look down on suburbanites who couldn’t handle San Francisco’s famously capricious climate. I’d heard the Sunset’s weather wasn’t great, but hey, how bad could it be?
“It was bad. Too bad for me; after our lease was up, my wife and I moved to the suburbs. Looking back, what bothered me most wasn’t the terrible climate—though I did hate it—but the vast difference between the Sunset’s weather and the weather everywhere else. Whatever meteorological patterns applied in normal parts of San Francisco didn’t seem to apply to the Sunset, which meant that forecasts for the city held no sway there. If the weatherman said it was going to be 80 and sunny, it was probably 55 and cloudy at my house.“
Of course, former Supervisor Ed Jew famously claimed to live in the Sunset, but instead of actually doing that he preferred to risk jail, which is where he’s at right now. Oh well.
What a great place for a high-cost, low-productivity photovoltaic power plant using panels costing many times more than the going market rate. Oh well:

But it could be worse. The writer could have started talking about the “houses” of the Sunset District. Here they are, in no particular order:
Keep on keeping on, Sunset District.
