Wintry Mix


Today I was reminded of the much less glamorous aspect of living in New York City.  Wintry mix and all its variations is perhaps the single most influential thing preventing New York/East Coast living peoples from ever being quite as happy and content as their West Coast counterparts - more specifically the few lucky ones in Sunny Southern California.

Southern California may not be the most tropical locale on the earth, nor may it have the most beautiful white sandy beaches.  Yet, on a day-by-day basis, year in and year out, SoCal has consistent mild climate that never gets too cold nor too hot.  Beaches are open all year long and let me tell you, they are used all year long, when you're not tanning you're surfing.  Hand-in-hand with the beauty of the climate is the beauty of the people which comes partly from the two season a year spring/summer dichotomy, the possibility for nonstop outdoor activity, and the lively society that has everything from island style living to big city bustle.  All in all what I'm trying to say is that Wintry Mix is probably the closest we can get to the third or fourth ring of hell, and that Wintry Mix is , thankfully, a completely nonexistent aspect of life in Southern California.

Now let me be as I dry my pants on the space heater.
