I am! I drove thru Monument tonight and actually had to turn up the heater. Felt damn cold.

I can't wait to break out the fur coats again. I came here in February and wore my fur coat up until about April...when Salt Lake City got 3 days straight of snow back in April. It snows there a lot more than here.

The hot weather here just doesn't do much for me like it did in Florida, where it gave an excuse to jump in the pool or head to the beach. Here it's just hot.

But it is nice to see some hot guys jog around shirtless LOL.

Going to be 100+ here in California for a few more months at least. I'm headed to Colorado on vacation in Sept!

I missed the blizzard in December 2006. We flew out to San Diego just before it hit and shut the airport down. I swear we had a storm every week for 6 weeks after that. Very snowy winter.

Bite your tongue! No more blizzards, pleeeeze! I'm hoping for another sunny and 70 Christmas! But I'm hoping for an end to the 90s. I think I'm going to get my third XCel bill of almost $300 I'm hoping for a September free of A/C or heater, with those great nights to sleep with the windows open.

I could go for a blizzard if it's going to shut us down for a week. Not some pansy wansy type of storm.

The occasional blizzard is fun....stuff closes down, people come out of the house eventually to shovel and commisserate...and it is usually pretty much gone after a few days. The winter of 2006? Not so much....it never melted and the roads were awful all winter. We ran out of places to pile the snow.

As hot as it has been this year the weather here is still awesome. Evenings you can open up after the clouds roll in.
Oh shut up lol, I hope I never see the stuff again. Try working outside all winter and your opinion of it will drastically change.

Exactly. It turns into a block party for us. The kids make snow caves. We chill our beer in the mounds of snow. It is fun. The office shuts down for a day or two.

I total understand if you work out doors.

I would love a 70 degree Christmas day. That is the beauty of fall and winter here. You get the best of both worlds when it comes to weather.
