Sometimes I Like Living in Los Angeles

Today is January 19. Let me repeat that: I live in the Northern Hemisphere, and it’s the middle of January.

This is where I spent my morning:

Los Angeles beach

It was 75 degrees Fahrenheit out.  The sky was blue, the sun was warm, and a seal frolicked in the surf and dove spectacularly across the breakers a few times.

It’s January 19.

Yes, you can all hate me now.

And the best part of this?  I can drive a few hours in the other direction and get amazing skiing.

(Of course, then I was stuck in traffic for an hour and a half driving home, which was kind of miserable as the temperature had gone up to 80F by then, and I found myself going through one of my East Coastian spurts of frustration with Southern California for failing to have a proper winter.  But the beach?  The beach was fantastic.)

    It was -15 celcious out. The sky was grey, the wind nippy, and a snow rabbit got stuck in the snow.

    It’s January 19th… and it’s gonna get colder still.

    I’m hatin’.
