It's February 14th. Happy Valentine's Day!
As the East Coast digs out of another snow storm, we on the West Coast are enjoying mild temps (60+ out there right now). It's been so mild that last night (February 13th), we were walking around in shorts and t-shirts until later in the evening when the temps cooled down.
The bad news is that there's no snow pack in the mountains and I expect summer will bring a long fire season.
That being said, I'm betting next year will be totally different and I'll be writing about how cold it is. :)
