Well, okay, not Digital Gee himself, but ...
I spent the week between Christmas and New Year's in Southern California. Went for a walk on the beach without a jacket (although the natives seemed to think it was cold), looked at the pictures of the 2nd major snow storm in two weeks hitting Colorado, and really wished I had my bike with me.
Back home and shovelling snow again today. Sigh. Now don't get me wrong -- I wouldn't want to live in S. California all the time. But I can see how a vacation home there might be nice
