That is definitely cold for SoCal. Wrap up warm, Babe!

The first Christmas I spent in California it was 80 degrees. Kind of takes the HO Ho Ho out of things, at least it did for this Michigander.

I know what you mean. In 2007 we spent Christmas in Florida with SO's daughter and family. It was kind of weird walking around Epcot Center or deep frying a turkey out by the pool in shorts and a tee shirt.

I don't even like those temperatures in the summer...70F or less for me! I'm always looking for an iceberg in the summer.

Funny! Living about 700 miles north of Montana we have pretty harsh/long/cold winters with lots of windchill. This year we had snow in September (melted) but usually stays on the ground for 6 consecutive months. Nothing unusual about being -40 for weeks on end. Doesn't mean we like it, though!

I am, however, glad that although our summers get hot (100F) the hot days don't drag on and on and on forever.

I enjoy any weather that means I'm not roasting or the sun isn't burning me up! Even before the dreaded hot flashes started!

We live a couple of hours north of you and drive to Edmonton when we can to go to the Italian Centre, T&T and the little spice (and other) shops.

When it hit 40 F for the first time I reluctantly decided that if it stayed that cold another night I'd have to turn the furnace on. At 35 I started wearing a cap & glove for my nightly walk- still wore shorts, though. When it hit 0 for the first time I decided I'd better dig out my winter coat as soon as I had the chance.
