If you plan a visit to the City By The Bay, consider yourself informed/warned about Karl’s nefarious plans to make you reconsider bringing your bikini.

If you live in the Bay Area, you may know that our perennial fog has a name — Karl.

“In the beginning the fog was a little oppressive,” says Kristie Tappan, who moved to San Francisco from Reno, Nevada. “But when I found out about Karl the Fog, it actually made the fog a friendlier presence and more of a neighbor than just bad weather.”
