The Marine Layer


I took Doppler out for a quick walk this morning at 3:30 AM. She looks down. I look up.

The stars were mainly gone. A low gray cloud deck had moved in. Nothing unusual. I went to bed.

By the time I woke up the clouds were gone. It’s like this a lot in SoCal–sunny days/cloudy nights.

There is a reason. It’s called the marine layer. Let me explain.

    wishing you and your family nothing but happiness

  2. Geoff, Enjoyed listening to you explain about the marine layer while accompined by a magic trick. What trick you say! Well you in about 12 seconds went from a brightly sunshined room in a black polo shirt with some blue trim to a darkened room in a black t-shirt all without even missing a word in your explanation. LOL. I’m one of the millions out there that love you and miss you in CT. 🙂

  3. Geoff….Tammy & Gammie (can’t make this up!!!) could not have said it better!!! PLEASE do more “class room stuff”. You allow we “common folk” to understand very complicated weather events, sometimes mild & sometimes wild, but always explained in terms that even I understand!!! I keep telling you, add a teaching job at a university close to home to your “job description”….you have no idea how many students’ lives you could impact!!! All of your fans in Conn. will agree with me!!!!! Keep up the good work that we all look forward to reading everyday!!!
