Soooooooo Cold

There's something about California cold weather that really shocks your system. Last night it dipped down into the 40s, but it felt much colder than that (I can't imagine how freezing it must've been near the beach). Even Mr. Octopus, who grew up in Connecticut, said that it gets colder in LA than on the East Coast. While I don't agree with that, there is definitely something about the California cold that is different. Maybe it's the temperature swings. 80 degrees during the day, 40 degrees at night, which means that if you're out all day, then you're not wearing enough clothes to keep you warm after dinner.

To make matters worse, we haven't turned on the heat in our house. Not that we can't, we just haven't (we should!). We have an old house, with old ducts, and I think we want to get the heating system checked out (ducts cleaned, filter replaced) before we turn it on. As a result, our house is freezing. My fingertips actually turned numb this morning. We're calling some HVAC people come over soon. I'm looking forward to turning the heat on full blast next week.

don't worry about the cold--just wait for when the rains start...

by the way, I recommend you head out to the Hollywood christmas parade whenever it is--it's the most amazingly budget, b-list celebrity affair you'll ever see. I think when we were there, the brother from "everybody loves raymond" was the grand marshall.

I was in Palm Desert a couple of years ago. It was nice and warm on the ground but when we got onto the mountain it was very cold!

Totally! Today was like 80 and tonight it's like 10-degrees?
My blood don't like this crazy weather.

I hate it when we turn on the heater for the first time - the whole house smells like a musky old car for about an hour.
