I live about 3 miles from the pacific ocean and I personally can't stand June gloom(as we CA residents call it)! mad
Its always damp and cool with low cloud cover and then the "lovely" devil fog rolls in, usually at the end of the day.  Today is dark and cool/damp.  Sometimes June gloom will roll over into July or it can start in May.  I was in Georgia a couple weeks ago, weather was not to hot and sticky and I did well.  Now that I'm home, this crap is bugging me.  I am in a constant state of ache. shakehead
Does anyone here live near the ocean and deal with this foggy, damp cruddy weather?  Its funny, I was born and raised here and I REALLY notice this icky weather at this time of the year.  I guess I didn't pay no mind b/4 FM.

Hi Binki...I lived for thirteen years in VA beach...On the ocean for awhile and then about a half mile from the ocean.  I was more affected by the constant high humidity and temperatures than anything else.  When my mom got sick we moved back to New York State and now I have to tolerate the cold.  I guess there is no pleasing me!  We have had the coolest, dampest spring ever this year (I grew up here before moving to VA).  It barely hits 60 degrees and it's June already.  I guess any temperature extreme affects fibro-mites!

Wet is just plain bad for me. Cold or hot, dampness makes me hurt and ache. I sure don't like those days. I had a bad time the other day when it was raining...I was in bed for a lot of the day. I suppose we should move to AZ, but hubby's job has us here in MI right now.

Hope your gloomies go away soon. :)

I live in Eastern Oregon so we do get sunshine but in June we get the evening thundershowers.

I hate the cold and can not wait until it warms up and I have some sunshine.

I grew up in Northern California and I've never heard of the term "June Gloom," we didn't live on the sea, but we lived near the water - on a navy base. Yeah, we had fog, but it burned off soon enough.

I also lived for about eight years (altogether) in Hampton Roads, VA - right near the ocean - and the humidity there was horrible! I hated the heat and humidity in the summer!!! I still live in the south and the Summer is just awful.

My favorite place to live in the Summer was Seattle, WA - hands down.

When you come to the edge of all the light you have known and are about to step out into the darkness, faith is knowing one of two things will happen; there will be something to stand on, or you will be taught how to fly.

I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best. - Marilyn Monroe

Umm. You like Seattle? I used to.

This week we hit the high 80s and low 90. It was He double hockey sticks hot. Our humidity level is higher than usual. Please let tomorrow be normal. Climate change has hit us hard.

I am a native Southern Californian myself and Binki I am with you all the way, I HATE JUNE GLOOM:) Between the body pain and the sinus headaches it gives me I am always happy when July arrives. Hopefully, the June gloom will be done in June this year.
