Excerpt from Anaheim, Southern California: Its History, Climate, Soil and Advantages for Home Seekers and Settlers

One of the peculiarities of the climate cf Anaheim, in common with other points on the coast, is the gray mornings. To a Visitor from the East dur ing the summer months it would seem surely the day will be a rainy one, but after a short experience they will becpme accustomed to an obscured sunrise and about nine or ten o'clock a breaking awav of the cloud) curtain which had appeared so threatening, proving to be what is known as a high fog which, rising from the ocean, ?oats quietly inland about midnight, seldom. Touching the earth but hanging suspended afew hundred feet above it, temper ing the rays of the sun in the early morning. Then the seabreeze comes across the plain and adds its coolness and freshness to the air until becoming heated by contact with the warm earth of the interior it rises and, carrying with it the fogbank broken into ?eecy masses, carries it back a ?ying squadron of the ships of the air to its native ocean, after which the clear, blue sky is unbroken by a single cloud except, perhaps, away off over the ocean or just above the snowy peaks of the Sierra Madre; but until four or five o'clock the seabreeze continues to blow a cool, inwgorating blast which grad ualiy dies away toward sunset and the still evening air - almost dewless-is so quiet that a lighted candle can be carried about the garden with little dan ger of being blown out.

In the fall the seabreeze generally ceases to blow regularly, and the sun rises clear and warm, so that frequently our warmest weather is during the autumn months, but the temperature seldom reaches a higher point than 90° and is hardly ever above 75° at night and generally drops to about 60° toward morning. The winter average will be about 20° below these figures, and very uniformly so, though the' summer average will not be over 80° for the day. A peculiarity of this dry climate is that a like temperature by thermometer does not indicate a like feeling of discomfort as at an Eastern point. Close oh servers have made a difference of 10° to 15° in the temperature to be neces sary tolike unpleasant results. In a residence of nine years in Anaheim the writer has found it uncomfortable to sleep under a blanket but three nights, and woolen clothes are worn always. Our spring commences about 1st of January with the temperature and characteristics of an Eastern May which lasts until about April lst, when we have another three months corresponding with an Eastern June. Then three months of July followed by three months of September, much of the latter being very similar to the Indian summer.
