Here in Northern California, winters don't usually get too cold--at least not by the standards set by the rest of the country. Of course, here, when temperatures finally dip below 70 degrees in the fall, we hurry to put on our sweatshirts and start making hot chocolate. It's all relative, I suppose, since our summertime highs routinely hit something like 110 degrees. And it HAS been cold here lately--cold for us anyway, which means our high temperatures are somewhere in the 50s and our lows dip into the 30s at night.
Yes, I can hear you in the midwest, the east coast, Canada, and other parts of the world laughing. If your high temperatures hit the 50s, you'd probably put on your shorts and tank tops and go outside and play! YOUR kind of cold--the kind of cold that's hit much of the rest of the country in the last week or so--is nearly unimaginable here.
So, in order to appreciate the cold weather some of you are experiencing, I had to venture out into the chilly climes of Blogland, and one of my first stops was a visit with Jace in Missouri. Apparently, Jace is cold. So cold, in fact, that he's "Ded. D. E. D. Ded." Of course, Jace can make even freezing cold temperatures funny. Go on over and pay him a visit--I hear tell there may even be a raffle involved once the thaw sets in! You'll find him HERE. You might want to put your coat on first though!
