I should probably feel guilty, or at least sympathy, for the large swath of the United States suffering from icy weather but here in SoCal we have had a balmy winter.
Temperatures in January have been in the mid-80's and occasionally over 90 (degrees Fahrenheit). There has been nary a cloud in the sky. Mockingbirds are building nests and singing their pretty little heads off a full three months ahead of schedule. It has been just one sweet spring day after another.
Of course, we will pay for this wonderful weather this summer. With no January storms the California drought is getting worse with each passing sunny day. By August we may have to learn how to bathe in thimbles.
