My intention was not to post yet another cheeky So Cal weather thread. Still, the weather cannot be understated; it is magnificent. Looking around today in beautiful Orange County reminded me while we all chose to live here, it is paradise in many ways!

Default Sigh...

I really think sometimes I need to move to the PNW.

I don't even go outside when it's in the 80's... I don't even like the mid to high 70's. Not even in summer.

And I'm born, raised all my life in Southern California... spent my childhood in the SF Valley!

My ideal temp range is 50 to 70 degrees. And I'd gladly take 20's and 30's to 80's and 90's.
I would imagine I'd rather do 0 degrees rather than over 100 degrees, but I must confess I've never experienced being outside under 15 degrees.

What happened to me??

Oh well, glad to hear you're diggin' it.

While up top was supposed to read, why. I got a new laptop, smaller keys.

Ok bye, off to enjoy the outdoors again...

Good idea. Today it was perfect here, sunny and 63!! We just got back from a long walk and could see the snow on the tops of the mountains. I barely tolerate 83 in August.

Well it's 74 and partly cloudy (i.e. partly sunny!). This may not be exciting to some, but it is to me. To top things off, we get rain tonight - at night - just when I like it to help me sleep, and just in time for me to save on water usage. (I have used very little since our first rains due to xeriscaping.)

If 74 in January isn't someone's cup of tea, I am sorry and I understand. But to me, it sure feels like heaven compared to the blizzard back east my friends are enduring. I guess we are all different.

I'm so jealous!!!

It's a beautiful area, we drove up the Oregon coast, around the Olympic Peninsula then on to Seattle a few years ago in May. Most of the time we had rain on and off with cool brisk temps. It was heaven!

When we got to Seattle it started warming up and it got into the 80's! In May! The hostess at our B&B said it was "unusually warm". Ug. Still, we had a good time and people were out and about definitely enjoying their "summer break" and I can't blame them.

I think it was my English hubby that ruined it for me. I spent a little time in England and found the weather rejuvenating. Maybe it brought out my Finnish blood.

Anyway, first world problems I guess... I'm glad the OP is enjoying it... this IS after all paradise with the sticker shock on housing to prove it!
And I could think of way worse places to be... like Houston? I'd probably die there!

72F and sunny with no smog in Denver today.

Probably the nicest January day I've ever experienced here, but I'm one of those weirdos who thinks 83F is too hot.
