OK, I apologize for all this weather talk, but we RARELY have any winter weather to speak about here in Southern California. So I’m rolling with it. I’m going to go out on a limb and say that I don’t think there are many of us here who are used to temps like we are having right now. I know that I’m sure not! Of course, we have people here who ski and enjoy winter sports. And yes, we have folks who live here who are from colder regions. But for the most part, I think functioning in our normal routine, in this type of cold, is quite a challenge for a lot of us. Many of us were definitely not ready for it. I know I wasn’t! For instance, I personally don’t have nearly enough clothes for these temps, HA! And I don’t think I’m alone. Our California winter jackets just aren’t cutting it. I say this because today I saw people who were dressed warmly running errands and walking with their kids who were also covered up in blankets. BLANKETS?!?! Immediately upon seeing them I thought that I have found my tribe of fellow cold people! And I was utterly in awe of their brilliance. BLANKETS! Warm cozy blankets! YEEEEES. And how freaking practical!?!? Why go out and purchase an expensive coat that you may only wear eight times in a decade when you can just cover up in a blanket. Seriously, sheer BRILLIANCE!
Well, I hope you all have a day where you wonder why didn’t I think of that?!?!!!
