We've been sellin' at Turlock for some 30 years. Rain, cold, hot, wind, ice....
Our crews' about 70 y.o. now and we're still sleepin' on the ground.
Can't miss the show...

Turlock is in the Central Valley, which is considered Cental California. So the lyrics are correct ECXCEPT when we get it all at once, e.g., when we get an El Niño condition in the Pacific that creates a wet winter, or when we get summer Thunderstorms.

There is Northern CA and Southern CA. The people who claim they are in Central CA simply don't want to be associated with the others. :-)

Everything between the Grapevine up to San Francisco/Sacramento should be Central California. Everything above Sacramento to the Oregon Border (the forgotten California) should be Northern California.

Bill.... I was hoping you would be at the swap meet seeing how it's not too far from your back door.... maybe hanging our in one of those neat folding chairs
Under one of the few shade trees..... maybe autographing color 8X10's !
And watching the pretty girls stroll by.
Was looking forward to meeting you!
