I made a comment that these building were never meant to be permanent, when built in 1915.

Why is blue sky getting rare there?

We typically have "May Gray" and "June Gloom" here in San Diego (especially along the coast..not so much inland where I live, except in the early mornings). Although, we had 2 days of no sun last Sunday (April 30th) and Monday (May 1st)...and only saw the sun for a couple of hours on Tuesday (May 2nd). However, from Wednesday on...no May Gray. It's suppose to be very sunny and warm to hot this whole week. YAY! :>)

We need some of your rain here in San Diego, as we're back into a drought, again!

The rain is good for the plants. How cold is it?
