I used to hate the fog and dreary gray mornings. A few summers in heat and humidity changed me. Now I love the foggy mornings which mean cooler weather. If I wanted to live in mid west heat and humidity or Fresno type summers I would move there. Many times during the winter our house on the hill is in sun while the valley below is in fog. Our house passively solar heats when the sun is out which is nice in the winter but sometimes too warm in the summer. Yard work days are scheduled for foggy mornings but only if the yard work absolutely has to be done. The sun does keep the solar panels going. They even work on cloudy days and this year we have produced $152 worth of electricity for PG & E and are keeping our bills around zero.
