According to the Weather Channel, SF could get up to 84° today. That's right. 84° of pure chaos. As wonderfully weird as San Francisco is all the time, it gets even weirder when you add an unusual amount of sun. You see it all the time, someone who is normally happy eating their quinoa salad lunch in the office wants to go outside. In the fresh air! And get ice cream! The nerve.
Since the weather forecast predicts we'll have nice weather for a few more days, here's a list of the things that San Franciscans do at the first sign of sun.
1. Decide they simply can't work
People already think no one in San Francisco works, but on the first really sunny days of spring everyone in the office mysteriously turns into a 10-year-old and starts saying things like "it's just too hot to do anything" and "how can anyone be expected to work when it's so yada yada?" I'm telling you, people love yada yada. And not working.
2. Suddenly claim to miss the fog
We always want what we can't have, especially when it comes to suspended water molecules.
3. Accidentally dress stupidly summery
Look, I understand that you bought a silly floppy hat and have been waiting patiently to wear it with your huge sunglasses and fringe sundress and live out all your wildest Vanessa Hudgens fantasies, BUT make sure it's actually the right weather and not just your impatience clouding your judgment. Otherwise, enjoy looking like Megan Draper in Hawaii, but with goose bumps and a skirt you can't sit down on Muni in.
4. Go on impromptu picnics
The answer to everything is eating alfresco. You might even say we live in San Alfresco. Just kidding that's a fucking terrible thing to say. If you must go outside, consider a spot from our list of non-Dolores Park places.
5. Instagram cherry blossoms
Or any other plant that may or may not even be blooming. Yes, they're very pretty, but can we please try spicing up our pics somehow? I know nudity is technically against Instagram rules, but it's spring and you can't be held accountable for your actions anyway, so...
