    Today it was so cold in Los Angeles that …
    we had to close the windows
    I put up the top on my convertible
    I saw people wearing socks with their sandals
    I bought a sweater today
    I took the ice out of my coffee

    I remember lived in Southern California, and my father would call relatives in Chicago on Christmas day to tell them he mowed the lawn.

    Yes, living is SoCal is brutal...

    Yeah, I lived most of my adult life in Newport beach. Now I live outside of Ottawa, the coldest national capital in the world. What was I thinking? Don

    Born and raised in the greater Los Angeles area, I once remember that it got so cold that our air conditioner switched off.

    I thought we were all going to die...

    Northern California it gets a bit colder.

    I had to get out a friends club membership card to scrape the ice off the windshield, because the windshield washer fluid didn't immediately wash it off.

    Jeez... I'll bet your air conditioner doesn't even come on!

    Also born and raised in the Greater LA Area -- now living as close to Oregon as I was living close to Mexico. I lived over a decade up here without heat (no furnace, wood stove, etc). Those below freezing mornings were a bit nippy -- fortunately we do not get many of them per year. At the coldest times, I would brew a pot of herbal tea and sit on the floor with a wool cap on my head and another on the tea pot -- occasionally I would exchange caps to warm up my head. And perhaps cook a biscuit to take the bite out the air (it was very small house, so the oven could raise the temp a few degrees -- measured 13'x18' on the outside). I slept in the uninsulated attic. Ah...the good old days! (yes, I have heat now -- and it is on...oh, the wimp I have become! LOL!)

    LA drivers can't handle rain very well, and drivers up here tend to be clueless about snow. I remember the university closing down for the day because there was a little ice on the campus roads.

    Rain here right now and the hills tomorrow morning probably will be white (suppose to be 32F tonight on the coast).
    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.
