July 12, 1969: “It never rains in Southern California…”

Clamming, Pismo style. I guess it all can’t be surf ‘n’ sun.

Maw still hums this song every now and again. The data agrees (see below), at least for July. We learned a very different lesson back in ’69.

Speaking with Maw a few weeks ago she recalled this day in detail. I added up all of the challenges: thunderstorms, heat, tent camping, laundry, more rain, power outage with soaked clothes. That must have been the worst! Mom was like, meh.

Actually had thunder and rain – then a fairly hot day. Went to San Luis Obispo to buy Tim a new rod. They swam. Another shower in the evening and the power went out just as I was finishing the laundry.
