The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

How cold is it?

Well, it was 7 degrees Fahrenheit this morning, the coldest it's been since 3 March 2002.

I bitched about it then, too.

They promised us 40s tomorrow. Then again, they promised us 30s Monday and Tuesday, and we didn't get those either.

Growing up in New York, at some point I got into my head that it never snowed anywhere in the South (except maybe northern-most Virginia). It was an assumption I never really lost until my first winter in Tampa Bay, when it actually *snowed* for the first time in a decade (it was just a light dusting, but I was stunned).

By the way, it was a chilly 65ish here today. Thank you very little.

We crawled up to 41 for a few brief shining moments — the sun was out and everything — before things sank back into the Slough of Chilled Despond.

I have seen snow (flurries, anyway) over Malibu. The natives were frightened.
