June Gloom in San Diego is no joke. We've lived in Pacific Beach for almost five years and most of the year, it's absolutely wonderful living on/at the beach. It's easy to forget how bad May Gray June Gloom is until it is May and June. Usually you think of clear blue sunny skies when you think of San Diego, but there's a certain phenomenon that occurs this time of year when the clouds take over.
Every morning you wake up to a dark gloomy marine layer over the ocean and beach towns. Every afternoon you wait and wait for it to break. It's hard to get out of bed, let alone go to the beach and be outside. Sometimes you yearn for sun so badly you consider driving down the 8 for some rays, then you laugh at yourself for considering driving down the 8, partly because you don't have the motivation to go anywhere because of the June Gloom, and partly because it's driving down the 8.
Sometimes May Gray June Gloom becomes No Sky July and Fogust, and before you know it, it's Autumn and football is starting and you realize you never really went to the beach this summer. Anyway, if you find yourself in this position as a local or if you booked a vacation to San Diego this time of year without knowing about the local weather, you may be looking for an activity to escape the gloom.
Escape games are perfect for that! They are played indoors with no windows so you will have no idea how unsunny it is in the outside world. Get your games in now so you won't feel bad about being indoors when the sun actually returns. Or if you're visiting "sunny" San Diego, you can still be able to post a picture of you having a good time on vacation. Who knows? You may even walk into the game out of the gloom, and walk out of the game into sunshine! And that's the power of escape games!
Book The Speakeasy and/or The Diner now to escape the gloom!
