cold snap.

January 15, 2013

First of all, I love the expression “cold snap.” It’s fun to say.

I saw this video on Facebook the other day and loved it. If you have a minute, watch it, because it’s great.

It’s kind of funny how quickly I’ve become accustomed to the predictably wonderful California weather. I’ve been shivering around my apartment in lots of layers and Ugg boots. I noticed back in Ohio that it was mid 50’s a couple of days ago. I saw so many Facebook statuses from Ohio friends about how they were going outside to play in the beautiful weather. Over here, we are having the same temperatures, but we’re all huddling in a corner trying to stay warm.

The power of perspective, eh?

    I saw a heated Facebook exchange between a local friend of mine and her friend up north. The friend up north was basically making fun of my friend for talking about how cold it is. You know, the whole “you don’t knoooow what cold is” thing. And someone came up with a good point. People up north are used to the cold because once it’s cold it stays cold. Here — we see a 30-40 point drop overnight or sometimes in the middle of the day. There have been COUNTLESS times I have gone to sleep with my AC on and woken up in the morning to a freezing apartment because even though the night before it was in the 70s, it is now in the 30s. So in our eyes, THAT IS EXTREME WEATHER! Anyway, I didn’t mean to get all fired up here about northerners making fun (esp. since you’re technically one). Truth be told, we make fun of people up north having heat stroke when it’s like in the 80s and we’re all like, “Pshh. 85 degrees? It’s 120 here.”
