I spoke to Stef last night as I left work. She told me on her way home from the studio (That sounds so Hollywood, doesn’t it?) she noticed someone in a full length fleece coat. Stef was wearing a light sweater. The temperature was in the 50s. She couldn’t believe it.
Believe it Stef!
People don’t complain about abstract numbers they complain about deviation from normal. It was chilly for Los Angeles. But I’m with Stef on this, cut me a break.
Same thing happened today on my way into work. I was speaking with my mother. I told her we were in the low 20°s overnight. She then told me she had her heat on for the first time this season.
I love you Mom, but really? She’s in Florida for heaven’s sake! Her temperature bottomed out in the upper 30°s about 15° warmer than here.
Can we trade?
Right now it’s 74° on the USC campus in L.A. My folks are in the mid 50°s. By next week this cold air will be a thing of the past… for them. For us it’s the gift that keeps on giving.
