This Foggy Time Lapse Video Makes Me Miss San Fran

I love San Francisco, they basically invented cool. Though the weather (and sky high rent) has made me avoid ever making the jump to live there.

Plus let’s face it, their side of the ocean is really, really cold. Regardless, this time-lapse of the fog rolling over this great American city makes me miss it.

Perhaps it’s time for a visit? Meet me there (at any Mexican place in the mission).

If I had to sum up this video with one quote, I’d use San Francisco native Jerry Garcia who sang famously:

What a long strange trip it’s been.
