What if?

SF is unique. It sits on the tip of a peninsula that juts out into the SF Bay. It is bounded on 3 sides by cold water. The Pacific Ocean and SF Bay. The cold water prevents the land mass from warming even in summer. So there are always cood nights. The only break in the coastal range of mountains from Seattle to LA is the Golden Gate. The fog bank lives off the CA coast on the Pacific. When the temps warm the fog is sucked in off the ocean through the Golden Gate across SF - cool summer days. When it warms in the morning it is pushed back out into the Pacific. It's like a big grey tongue moving in and out all summer. The result is no mosquitoes. The great qutoe from Mark Twain is "the coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco." A bit of an exageration but you get the point.


Great! You'll need to change your handle to SFman and you're good to go. Enjoy!

Most folks don't let mosquitos scare them away from their favorite vacation destination.

What a weird turn this conversation has taken. :loco:

Sorry to disappoint, we have been permanent residents of Mexico for 9 years.
A year and a half in Zihua. No more SFMan. We do feel very comfortable here with the global pandemic. The remoteness and difficulty getting here is a definite plus. Sorry for my rave about the microclimate of SF I was just talking about beautiful vacation spots without mosquito borne illnesses.
