Why has the sun god abandoned LA?

Is it just me, or has 2006 in Los Angeles been extraordinarily foggy and overcast? And if I'm right, is there an explanation? Something about jetstreams or low-pressure systems in the Indian Ocean or maybe butterflies?

I don't know about "extraordinarily" foggy -- it's felt pretty much like the usual June gloom that descends every year, but in this case about a month or so early.

San Diego is the same. I haven't ever noticed it being as "non-stop" overcast before.

When I was a kid we called it the "June Gloom," and it often took up bits of both May and June. Now that I live in Portland I call it AutumnWinterSpring... ;)
