My husband and I had an outdoor wedding here in the Coachella Valley where we live, in June. You would have thought the non-CV people were going to die or something - and it was a 6pm wedding and only 90 degrees out! I've never seen so many sissy folks assembled in one place in my life! Just an observation.
It was a "cold" 61 degrees here this morning.

Both.

Actually, most of them were from the Bay area - mostly my husband's family. He has more family than I do. My family are lifelong SoCal residents so they are pretty much used to CV weather.

We had an earthquake??? LOL. Didn't even feel it.

We've been told that we're having the "Big one" every New Year for all of my life (36 years). We're constantly having quakes. In fact, just today there was a 3.5 in Death Valley.
