A few of my best friends from Chicago emailed me on Friday to rub in the fact that they had a snow day.

While it is always nice to have an unexpected day off, I think I’m okay with the fact that I’m not going to be having any snow days out here.

To have a snow day means that it has to be cold. While I do miss the snow sometimes, I don’t miss the cold.

This morning, I woke up and had a couple bowls of Corn Flakes, and then sat outside on the balcony to read the Sunday paper in my soccer shorts and a t-shirt.

It gets pretty chilly here at night… which means that it gets down to the high 40s. During the day, it’s been hitting the high 70s.

It’s almost Christmas and I’m driving around with the top down on my car!

I know some people probably couldn’t deal without having seasons and whatnot, but that’s not me. I am enjoying every bit of this Southern California weather.
