I know, I know, I go months without posting and then when finally I do, it's to bitch about the weather. Well, I feel that strongly about it: I hate snow.
Not strongly enough, mind, to have stayed in Los Angeles. I'd have to be allergic to the stuff to do something as drastic and unpleasant as that. Fortunately(?), I do not actually break out in hives at the onset of winter. I just become progressively more irascible until that wonderful day the sun starts sneaking out a bit earlier and the snow starts receding.
Of course, the first true sign of Spring that girls start wearing their short skirts again. It is for this reason alone that Spring is my favourite season. Sure, in SoCal there are girls out in skimpy clothing pretty much year-round, but that just makes them part of the scenery. No lifelong SoCal resident can truly appreciate the true wonder that is the first short skirt of Spring.
But that's months away. At least I have something to loof forward to.
As an ex-Pennsylvanian, I always appreciated the first dumbass to don shorts prematurely. Everyone else is plodding through the gray slush in their boots, but there's Mr. Optimistic in shorts & Birkenstocks.

Yeah, I don't understand that at all. I don't wear shorts in the summer, I'm sure as hell not going to expose my legs in three feet of snow, no matter what advantages my pale ass legs might provide me, camouflage-wise.

We caught a doozy of a blizzard here as well. What a damn hassle. That's why I'm such a staunch proponent of global warming. Bring it on.

In high school, I always appreciated the handful of girls too foolish to ever stop wearing short skirts as winter set in. Yes, you do technically live in California, hon; no, that doesn't make the morning temperature hovering in the high 30s any less brisk.

6 inches. Even my SUV was buried. Why, oh why did I ever leave San Diego?!?
