Sure, I know exactly where you are. Very beautiful area of the southland.

You're right about the basement being unusual in SoCal. My house sits on a hillside and we call the unoccupied lower lever (utility area) of the house 'basement' as it is half way dug into the hillside. I really don't know what else to call it.

Yep, I saw that ... our local weather guru just said that Alaska is actually benefiting from our arctic blast. Go figure! No global warming here (figure of speach, no flames please)!

It is 15 degrees F right now (with a windchill several degrees cooler). We keep our thermostat turned way down so that the heater won't come on much (we are dressed in warm clothes and wearing nice heavy slippers), but it has come on a couple times tonight.
