It's like 75 degrees here, so damn hot! You people back east and in the north west don't know how easy you have it. We're burning up in Southern California!

I don't mind the cold as long as my car works. Bundling up makes me feel nostalgic.

10F is just a challenge to drink your bevy before it freezes.

Low of 1 (F, so -12 or so C) here tonight. Probably the coldest it's been since we moved here from the Bay Area.

I'd ride to work in the morning, but work is already closed because the world outside is an ice rink right now. So VPN it is!
