What is June Gloom you ask? Well scientifically speaking, it is the elusive swirl of breezes called the Catalina Eddy that are responsible for helping cool the Los Angeles basin. In English, it’s that time during the beginning of June when LA feels strangely like San Francisco, cold, dark, and well, gloomy! EVERYONE relax. This typically only lasts a few weeks, so we devised a guide on how to beat the June Gloom Blues!
#1 Get a pair of cropped pants, it will make all the difference in the world when you get stuck in a bit of drizzle.
#2 Glasses, we know you have your amazing pair of sunnies for summer all picked out; however, we suggest glasses for those dark and stormy mornings!
#3 A cookbook: June Gloom means early nights in, why not entertain? Hit up your local farmer’s market grab some goodies and get cooking.
#4 A yummy scented candle: Is there anything better than that dusky gray light combined with a bit of candlelight? Romantic!
#5 An umbrella: This is one of those ‘you never know when you might need it’ items that is an absolute must for Los Angelenos.
