California Sun

Nothing makes me appreciate the sunshine of California much like the stories I hear from everyone back in the midwest and out east with their snow. I just talked to my mom online and she said they had gotten about 1.5" today and the weather reports were calling for 4-10 more inches tomorrow. In New York, they are getting pounded. The lack of cold earlier in the winter has allowed the Great Lakes to remain unfrozen, which is causing ridiculous amounts of lake effect snow. I found a story saying: Oswego County, a rustic string of towns and villages on the southeastern rim of Lake Ontario, received 5 to 10 feet of snow over eight days. In one town, Redfield, the National Weather Service reported an unofficial total of 11 feet 8 inches, which would be a state record for snowfall from a single storm event. And the Weather Service said more snow was on the way. NO FUN! I am so glad I am out here! This weekend was overcast, rainy and chilly, but our 50 degrees is much better than the negative 20 they are having back home. If I could send you all some sun, I would :) Think warm thoughs!
