I live in La Jolla California. As a born and bred resident of the Northwest (Seattle and Portland) and having spent 17 years in Chicago I know that means no "real" weather. I know my Synapse was beginning to miss its hometown so when we had some extraordinary weather down here I had to take it out for a walk yesterday and today.
Needless to say, it performed wonderfully keeping everything dry! Alas, we will have to soon return to the ever present sunshine and mild temperatures here.
