Man, I feel sorry for you guys who live in cold climates.
As you can see, I live in Southern California. I travel all over the U.S. and Canada on business, and I have never been to a place that has better weather than So. Cal.
We are already experiencing spring weather (although we don't really have a winter). It seems wherever you live in So. Cal., you are within a one hour drive from any type of weather: a one hour drive to the desert (Palmdale / Lancaster to the north, Palm Springs to the east); a one hour drive to the mountains with snow in the winter and an alpine climate (Idyllwild, Big Bear, Lake Arrowhead, Mt. Baldy); and a 30 min. to 60 min. drive to the Pacific Ocean. It also goes without saying that San Diego is but a 2 to 2.5 hour drive from L.A.
Yesterday was about the most ideal weather you could dream up: 78 degrees F (about 26 degrees Celsius). Clear blue sky, perfect visibility, white wispy clouds floating by.
Today looks just about the same.
Another day in paradise....
