2012 Subaru Impreza: Thirteen Days of Gray

Someone (but not Mark Twain) said that the coldest winter he ever spent was a summer in San Francisco. Well, +1 for Santa Monica.

See our Ice Silver Metallic Impreza against that sliver of  gray sky? That summarizes our the weather here in the June-gloomy Southland: slate mornings, misty afternoons and high temperatures that are only in the frigid 60s (I'm a native--60s is sweater weather for me).

Yesterday, I foolishly dressed for a sun-kissed June that's taking place in some other part of the country, but not here. By the end of the day, I had freezing toes and goosebumpy arms. The Subaru's heater, properly set, defrosted my feet in a hurry. And although Donna said that its seat heater is "almost imperceptible," it worked for me.
