I was on a bus many years ago going through (and through, and through) L.A. during the winter, and it snowed! None of us on the bus could believe it, but there it was right outside the windows.... palm trees and snow. I mean a blizzard. Amazing. Now we're in Florida, and the A/C is kicking on this morning at 8AM. One Christmas in Hawaii, we had to come inside to finish our meal because it was so blazing hot outside. Three years ago in New Mexico, just 50 miles from the Mexican border, I rode my bike to get coffee at my hangout in 9 degree weather, w/ snow that had hardened into ice on the roads.
I'd rather be complaining about the heat than the cold, hence the Florida move. I mean, Florida summers can make you feel like you're gonna die, but Up North winters WILL kill you. I have a photo somewhere around here that shows our thermometer on the back porch w/ the needle at 9 degrees. I hope to never see something like that again as long as I live.
