|West Los Angeles, early December 2011|
Now that we’re a few weeks away from the start of spring–at least according to the calendar–it can be told: even by Los Angeles standards, we haven’t had much of a winter. It’s been pretty dry for what’s supposed to be our rainy season, and not very cold–not that it’s ever truly cold this close to the coast, but we’ve had days at a time where temperatures have hit the 80s. It always feels a bit unfair to complain about our climate when so much of the country gets snowbound…but this is supposed to be sweaters-and-boots time! Global warming? Yeah, it might be a thing.
