For those of you having cold and snowy weather

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
I know this isn't nice of me, but today in L.A., it's supposed to get up to 76 degrees, and then stay around 70 or above for the rest of the week, and on Christmas Day the extended forcast says it will be 80 degrees. I'm really not gloating, though. Because I wish we could have snowy weather at least for a week or two.

It feels warm here today because it is finally above zero! (I wanted to post that I was sending you a bottle of VO5 I got on sale, but I don't want to sound mean, so I'll just keep that to myself. I'm so sick of my feet feeling cold...)

The snow is pretty, though! I'll send you some with the shampoo, ok?

Yesterday my "friend" stopped me as I was coming home, and asked me how I liked my Gift. I didn't know what to day, so I said, "Yes, thank you."

It's not snowing here, but there is a TON of ice still on the roads and a thick layer of snow on the ground from a week and a half ago....So, 76 degrees huh? Swimming weather? I cannot imagine going to the beach on Christmas, with warm weather and no snow!! I guess I'm just a New England person, always will be .

I'm not the least bit jealous of yor warm weather. What's Christmas without snow? It is the first white Christmas we've had in 3 or 4 years, though. And, yes, it is snowing here. I didn't know it was supposed to snow, but it is a light snow. Sort of half-hearted. It's stil snow!

We've got to write you a wee list of appropriate responses to this woman! Trust me, neither "yes" nor "thank you" will be on it!

Its 5 degrees out now the grounds covered in snow. the driveway is so icy you risk your life getting to the truck. My wood stoves going all 5 cats stretched out in front of it sound asleep, I love it! Come mid Feb. I do admit I get tired of it. I can not imagine it feeling like Christmas unless its cold and snowy. And the weather man says it looks like we will be getting some snow Christmas Eve! Perfect....

IMO summer should be summer and winter winter. I'm sure the weather in LA is lovely, but at the moment I'm more annoyed because weather forcast says Christmas is going to be warm and rainy instead of snowy.

How hot does it get in summer, where you live? I live about 6 or 7 hours away from you in Modesto and it is overcast and cold (well in the high 50ies, but too cold to stand outside holding a cat on leash!). Soon (way before I want it) the weather will clear, and it will be HOT - 106 to 108 degrees in the SHADE! I HATE Modesto weather!

Hope, you have so much more class than I do. Those wouldn't have been the words out of my mouth. Not so much for what the gift was but that she did not respect your wishes or your feelings by getting you a present in the first place. Kudos for your even temper.

Honestly I've always lived in the northern Midwest (or East...where ever you put Michigan and Illinois). I have wondered what its like to wear shorts on Christmas Day.
I mean breaking my back while shoveling snow, getting my civic snow plowed by SUVs that decide their AWD is GOD compared to snow, slush and ice and having to walk like my grandma on a sheet of ice to get to my car...as crazy as it sounds I think I would miss it. LOL.

I have to say that one thing remember missing was snowy Michigan over the holidays!

Actually, I'm not used to snow, so I guess I don't know what I'm missing. I would love to experience a White Christmas. However, usually at Christmas it's more of a beach day than a snow day. They've upped the forecast a bit for the week. It's supposed to be about 85 on Christmas day. I think tomorrow is supposed to be the coolest day of the week, and it should be about 71 degrees.

As far as compared to Modesto goes, it gets a lot cooler up there in the winter, and you get a lot more rain in the winter than we do down here. However, I don't think it gets as hot in the summer here in LA as it gets in Modesto, because isn't Modest a bit inland? We can get temps that are in the 90's and even triple digits, but the triple digits usually only happen a few days out of the summer. It's usually in the upper 80's and the lower 90's, and a bit cooler than that when you're on the beach.

Um... a few nights ago it was -29 degrees with windchill... nothing for it but to curl up with a good book and a cup of hot cocoa and my kitties! (My s/o calls me frost princess because my feet are never warm)
